Chris Pratt in hot water over his controversial tee shirt

They don’t show the flag in the article it is so controversial. After all it’s an American Flag with the Gadsden flag “don’t tread on me” lightly in the background.

I think he wore it around the 4th of July. The nerve.

He married Katherine Schwarzenegger, would that be the daughter of Arnold? Boy looks a lot more like the mom.

During 2016 (Obama) the EEOC ruled the Gadsden flag was workplace racial harassment.

I’m glad I’m old. No sure if I want to see how bad it’s going to be.

Kind of looks like a gun in a pocket holster in right front pocket. Nice!

The writer should be kicked in the nuts!
The coiled rattlesnake with the “Don’t Tread on Me” message is the iconography associated with the Gadsden flag, created by Continental Army Brig. Gen. Christopher Gadsden. While the flag’s original purpose wasn’t rooted in white supremacy, it has been adopted by some white supremacists and far-right groups in recent years
Yes, so have socks, shoes, take out food and 401k's- we aren't all racists because we're not liberals! Idiot.


*ETA anyone know where the shirt can be had? I like it and would buy one.

I don't think that exact shirt from the brain treatment foundation is for sale. I think it was a giveaway.

But there are tons of places to buy shirts with similar images on the chest.

I have that one! And will be looking to buy the other.

Interestingly I just googled "American Flag with Gadsden Flag" and the links came up with "Chris Pratt's white supremacist tee shirt " :banghead: So ridiculous!

But wearing a Che t-shirt is okeydoke in fashion circles.

From the photo, I’m feeling a little better about my belly.

If Chris Pratt believes in what is on his tee shirt, he probably doesn't care what SJW's and progressive socialists have to say about it.

Yahoo Movies UK on Wednesday updated the headline and text of a story about Chris Pratt after backlash over online claims that the “Avengers: Endgame” star wore a “white supremacist” t-shirt.

“This article was updated on 17 July with the initial headline, ‘Chris Pratt criticised for ‘white supremacist’ T-shirt’ being amended to ‘Chris Pratt criticised for T-shirt choice.’ References to White Supremacism in this article have been removed,” an update on the story reads.
