Yahoo Revises Story After Backlash Over Calling Chris Pratt’s T-Shirt ‘White Supremacist’

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.

The British division of the news site came under fire for the Tuesday article about Pratt’s decision to wear a shirt featuring a Gadsden flag, or an American flag accompanied by a rattlesnake and the words, “Don’t tread on me.”

The leftists see white supremacy in anything a member of the right wears. It's the only thing the loonies have going for them. They are important in their own minds, like the Four Dingbats of Congress.

It is a sickness in the minds of todays Democrats. T-shirts, Tennis shoes, flags,.... they all make the left mad, and anything that upsets a Democrat needs to be outlawed.

If I can find the website for the company that made the shirt that Pratt was wearing, I may order some for my family. I like the shirt.

Ok, found the company that produced the shirt Pratt was wearing. It is Forged and here is their website:

https://www.forged.com/

Also, apparently they responded to the idiots that were calling Pratt a racist for wearing their shirt. Here is their response:

Quote:
Lone Survivor Marcus Luttrell and Forged take stand for Chris Pratt and Gadsden Flag

Navy SEAL and Purple Heart recipient Marcus Luttrell and Forged Clothing showed their support for actor Chris Pratt and the Gadsden flag this week, this after Pratt came under fire and was labeled a “white supremacist” for wearing a Gadsden flag T-shirt.

Forged Clothing originally posted a message in support of Pratt, which Luttrell shared on his Instagram account.

“We at @forgedclothing would like to address the ridiculous accusations that [Pratt] supports white supremacy because he wears our ‘Don’t Tread On Me’ T-Shirt,” Forged wrote. “First and foremost, we are a Navy-SEAL founded, patriotic and military-inspired brand. Our CEO and members of our Forged team served alongside military service members of all races, cultures and ethnicities. As we fought for our country, many of us wore the 1st Navy Jack flag on the sleeves of our uniforms, which the Gadsden military-authorized flag is based on. This incredibly powerful symbol was one of the first flags flown by our Continental Navy since 1776 and is still widely used by our military forces today.”

“Secondly, [Pratt] has been a great friend and loyal supporter of Forged since our paths crossed back in 2011,” Forged continued. “Since then, his support has helped both @forgedclothing and the @murphchallenge raise millions of dollars for military and law enforcement families and foundations. He has never ONCE asked for a dime in return and has always used his own funds and resources to help promote these campaigns in honor of others. [Pratt] is by far one of the most humble and selfless Americans we have ever known. We will ALWAYS have his back.”

And finally, we are not [Nike],” Forged added. “The four tweets that have been posted by small-minded people with myopic views (one of which has already been deleted) DO NOT scare us. We will not back down and recall our Gadsden Flag shirts. Instead, we are going to re-release this design. So to the few ignorant critics offended by our patriotism and Chris Pratt’s patriotism… Standby. This one is for you! 🇺🇸 PLEASE SHARE THIS MESSAGE AND HELP US SUPPORT [Pratt] AGAINST THESE ACCUSATIONS.”

I believe I will be placing orders with this company.

People must be buying from Forged like crazy, a lot of their shirts are sold out.

If actual white supremacists were smart (which, they're not, by definition), they would adopt everything the Left likes so the Left wouldn't be able to enjoy them...

Just march up and down the street with their torches chanting "We love Starbucks because we're not snobs!", "Raise the minimum wage to $15 to help whitey!", and "Every black baby aborted is a win for us!"...
