The wrath of some NFL fans is directed at Chris Pratt -- all because he had the audacity to be a loud and proud Seahawks fan.
Over the weekend, the actor returned to the state where he grew up to promote "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" and its upcoming trailer. He got to do that by participating in the Seattle Seahawks' tradition of having a special fan raise a 12 flag ahead of kickoff in honor of the team's supporters. As a die-hard himself, he was insanely excited, and that made some fans of other NFL teams really, really irritated. Their frustration was evident on Twitter, when people began to complain, suggest boycotts, and virtually shake their heads at him.
Chris Pratt will never be the best Marvel Chris because he cheers for the Seahawks.

You can't please everybody, so at least Pratt got to live his dream, which included seeing his team win and meeting Hall of Famer Walter Payton.
I'm at the Seahawks game! Living my dream. Feeling very blessed. Thanks to Universal, for this... https://t.co/v0KitsMUrG
