  • Mark Rufallo, Robert Downey Jr. and Katherine Schwarzenegger are slamming fans after they voted Chris Pratt the worst of the Hollywood Chrises.
  • It all started with screenwriter and television producer Amy Berg sharing photos of Chris Evans, Chris Pine, Chris Pratt and Chris Hemsworth and writing: "One has to go."
  • "[Chris Pratt] was banished from Chris Island years ago," one user commented, while another said: "Y'all know the answer is always Pratt."

Mark Ruffalo and Robert Downey Jr. are defending their friend and Avengers co-star.

See, it all started over the weekend when a tweet from screenwriter and television producer Amy Berg shared photos of Chris Evans, Chris Pine, Chris Pratt and Chris Hemsworth.

"One has to go," she wrote, reigniting the debate of which of Hollywood's Chrises is the worst of the Chrises.

The consensus: Chris Pratt.

According to E! News, one Twitter user commented that the Guardians of the Galaxy actor "was banished from Chris Island years ago," while another said: "Y'all know the answer is always Pratt."

Some even said Chris Messina and Chris Pang had bumped the star down the list. "Chris pratt is out, Chris Messina is in for a 16-month trial run," they wrote.

But now, it seems the entire MCU – and Katherine Schwarzenegger – are coming to Chris Pratt's defence, with Mark Ruffalo commenting on the drama on Twitter: "You all, @prattprattpratt is as solid a man there is. I know him personally, and instead of casting aspersions, look at how he lives his life. He is just not overtly political as a rule. This is a distraction. Let's keep our eyes on the prize, friends. We are so close now."

Noting that many are taking issue with Chris' political views, Robert Downey Jr. wrote on Instagram: "What a world... The "sinless" are casting stones at my #brother, Chris Pratt... A real #Christian who lives by #principle, has never demonstrated anything but #positivity and #gratitude…

"AND he just married into a family that makes space for civil discourse and (just plain fact) INSISTS on service as the highest value.

"If you take issue with Chris,,, I've got a novel idea. Delete your social media accounts, sit with your OWN defects of #character, work on THEM, then celebrate your humanness... @prattprattpratt I #gotyerbackbackback."

Chris' wife, Katherine, also commented on the drama, writing on Instagram: "Is this really what we need? There's so much going on in the world and people struggling in so many ways. Being mean is so yesterday.

"There's enough room to love all these guys. Love is what we all need not meanness and bullying. Let's try that."
