James Gunn Defends Chris Pratt's "Prayer Tweets" Following Kevin Smith's Heart Attack

Beloved filmmaker Kevin Smith suffered a massive heart attack last night following a stand-up special, and took to Twitter to express his gratitude and relief. The news shocked celebrities and fans alike, most notably Chris Pratt. The sitcom-turned-action star sent Smith his prayers following the near-death experience - but didn't receive the response one would expect. 

There's been a huge amount of backlash regarding our nation's use of "thoughts and prayers" in dire situations - especially ones that could have been avoided. Several Twitter users took this opportunity to liken Pratt's "prayers" with those uttered following tragedies such as school shootings. Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn was having none of this - and quickly came to Pratt's defense with a smart and poignant Twitter thread.
