Earlier in the week, Chris Pratt told Men’s Fitness that Hollywood has a representation trouble when it is necessary to blue-collar Americans, despite an Oscar season that highlighted the experience of working-class people( consider: “Moonlight, ” Manchester By The Sea” or “Fences” ).
” I don’t see personal tales that inevitably resonate with me, because they’re not my tales ,” he replied.” I think there’s chamber for me to tell mine, and likely an audience that would be hungry for them. The voice of the average, blue-collar American isn’t inevitably represented in Hollywood .”
His commentaries instantly elicited a passionate replies from tweeters who were quick to remind Pratt that is not simply are there a tons of movies about working-class white guys, there are other and more pressing representational issues to focus on in Hollywood.
Pratt apparently realise the error of his behaviors and took to social media on Friday to walk back his statements after the backlash.
” That was actually a pretty stupid thing to announce. I’ll own that ,” he wrote on Friday.” There’s a ton of movies about blue-collar America .”
