The Guardians of the Galaxy actor’s rep spoke to TMZ about the tweets, calling the screenshots “totally false.”

“Chris never tweeted the offensive things that are being circulated today. Any suggestion that he did is not only totally false but also defamatory,” the rep said. TMZ also received word from a senior executive at Twitter that they “strongly believe these [tweets] to be fake.”

This statement from Pratt’s representative comes after #RIPChrisPratt started trending on Twitter on Wednesday, which came in response to these alleged messages, which were racist and sexist in nature. They dated as far back as 2012.

As far as the validity of the tweets, it looks like the only tweet making the rounds that is actually real is the one below, in which Pratt tweeted about the irony of a Bank of America pen being produced in China.

Obviously, this isn’t the first time Chris Pratt has been “canceled” by folks on the internet. While this has been a running theme in his personal life, the star first fell out of favor in the eyes of some following his divorce  from Anna Faris in 2017. Prior to the 2020 election, others were being hard on the Avengers: Endgame star for being one of the only cast members not to support Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
