  • Chris Pratt Criticized For Wearing T-Shirt With Historical Flag On It

It wasn't long before the article triggered backlash on Twitter, but - perhaps contrary to Yahoo's expectations - the anger wasn't directed at Chris Pratt.

Marvel star Chris Pratt is under fire after he stepped out in a controversial T-shirt.

The coiled rattlesnake with the "Don't Tread on Me" message is the iconography associated with the Gadsden flag, created by Continental Army Brig.

Actor Chris Pratt was smeared by the media for wearing what they described as a "white supremacist" shirt, but it was the much more benign Gadsden flag design that gained popularity among Tea Party activists.

But it then goes on to claim that the design signifies the support of white supremacy, with only the opinion of a few random Twitter accounts as evidence. "Good lord", one user wrote. But, superimposed on the shirt's stars and stripes is a rattlesnake with the phrase "Don't Tread on Me" - and that design element has some labeling him a "racist" and accusing him of aligning with white supremacist values. That symbol has been used since the revolution.

It was to gather support for independence from Britain, not white supremacy", one user explained, while another pointed out, "The criticism Chris Pratt is getting right now is a flawless example of how NO ONE is safe from the PC police calling people bigots over nothing.

Although some of the followers are coming up with some pretty serious questioning, it's understandable in some realm considering the flag's recent history.

"It has therefore become a symbol of more conservative and far right individuals and, according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission of the USA, it also is 'sometimes interpreted to convey racially-tinged messages in some contexts'".

Chris has yet to speak out publicly about the controversy brought on by his T-shirt.

But over the years many within the access media have attempted to tie the flag exclusively to what they deem as racist or far-right groups.
