Chris Pratt and Animal Activist Controversy
Chris Pratt and Anna Faris allegedly tried to give their senior cat away on Twitter — the story was originally posted on Gawker, a notorious gossip magazine, in 2011. The magazine has a reputation for exaggerating the truth, but apparently this story came with tweets and blog posts by Pratt.
Pratt, in a now-deleted tweet, asked his followers “Anyone in the LA area want a cat? Full disclosure, she’s old and prone to accidents. So sweet though.” Apparently, Pratt then doubled down on the tweet after facing backlash from his followers, stating “So what I used twitter to give away our pet? I have some people who follow me and I thought maybe somebody would be thrilled to have my old cat. And guess what… Somebody was! Her name is Meghan and as far as I could tell she is a perfectly reasonable, sweet and friendly cat lover.”
