Chris Pratt announced over Facebook that he is truly sorry for the offensive things he will accidentally say while promoting his movie Jurassic World. He wants the people to know that he didn’t mean it, whatever it will be, and he will make every effort to prevent it from happening again (again).
What will #JurassicGate be?
Will Pratt veer into a sexist joke, like Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans made about Scarlett Johansson’s character in the Avengers? Or could it be a racist Tweet? Maybe a science blunder about dinosaurs (it is Jurassic World he’s promoting after all).
We won’t know until it happens, but Chris Pratt is already owning up to his mistake.
“I want to make a heartfelt apology for whatever it is I end up accidentally saying during the forthcoming #JurassicWorld press tour. I hope you understand it was never my intention to offend anyone and I am truly sorry. I swear. I’m the nicest guy in the world. And I fully regret what I (accidentally will have) said in (the upcoming foreign and domestic) interview(s).”
People Magazine pointed out that Chris Pratt is now known for his whiskey-drinking antics, which might partially be to blame for the horrible thing he will say. Whatever it is, Pratt makes sure Facebook knows he is trying, really.
“I am not in the business of making excuses. I am just dumb. Plain and simple. I try. I REALLY try! When I do (potentially) commit the offensive act for which I am now (pre) apologizing you must understand I (will likely have been) tired and exhausted when I (potentially) said that thing I (will have had) said that (will have had) crossed the line.”
Pratt went on to explain that it will likely have been some attempt to entertain hardworking crew members. But, despite his good intentions, Chris Pratt knows he went over the line.
“In fact in my opinion it was never right to say the thing I definitely don’t want to but probably will have said… I am fully aware that the subject matter of my imminent forthcoming mistake, a blunder (possibly to be) dubbed “JurassicGate” is (most likely) in no way a laughing matter.”
Even if he doesn’t make a gaffe on the press tour for Jurassic World, he’ll still have plenty of other chances to apologize ahead of time for.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, there are rumors circulating that Steven Spielberg wants Chris Pratt for another reboot of the Indiana Jones franchise. Pratt has not confirmed or denied conversations with the famous director, but voiced his trepidation in taking on such an iconic role.
Then, of course, there’s Guardians of the Galaxy 2 coming out in 2017, giving Pratt another opportunity to put his foot in his mouth.
It’s clear that the actor’s future is a minefield of accidentally politically incorrect statements, but it comes with the territory of being a star.
Jurassic World, starring the loose-tongued Chris Pratt, will hit theaters June 12th.
