Why did Marvel superheroes give so much support to well-established Chris Pratt and were silent when Captain Marvel aka Brie Larson was brutally trolled?
Robert Downey Jr.’s silence, when Brie Larson was trolled, speaks volumes about the sexism that lurks in every corner of Marvel’s franchise. A filmmaker raised a filthy question on the internet – “Who is the worst Chris in Hollywood?” and Chris Pratt was back in news. The actor received a humungous amount of hate online. Later, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, James Gunn, etc. stood up for him and defended him on all fronts. While there is no problem in standing up for a co-star, it is problematic as to why they were quiet when their co-star Brie Larson, who played Captain Marvel, was being bullied for several months by trolls.

Furious fans troll Marvel stars like Robert Downey Jr. for keeping Brie Larson aside
Brie Larson was at the receiving end of harsh and sexist comments for months on end for speaking up against issues but she fought alone. Similar incidents happened with Zendaya and Tessa Thompson who were also targeted, but no one came in support of them. When Chris Pratt was declared the “weakest Chris” recently, these Marvel Superheroes were enraged. However, none of these Marvel superheroes had voiced their opinion when female co-stars were targeted. But, fans won’t spare them easily.
A lot of netizens pointed out that none of the actors said a word when their female co-stars were being cyberbullied or cyber-attacked while they came in support for Chris Pratt.
