Paul Rudd hailed, but why is Chris Pratt being slammed? Internet dubs him ‘real hero’ for giving voters cookies
One tweeted, 'Chris Pratt-moral questionable beliefs Paul Rudd-Hands out cookies to voters like a good baby'
'Avengers: Endgame' actor Paul Rudd is being heaped with praise on Twitter for encouraging people to do their civic duties in the sweetest way possible. The actor was spotted handing out cookies to voters in Brooklyn, for which he's being dubbed as the "real hero" on the Internet.
A video of Rudd distributing the cookies while wearing a baseball cap, covered in mask and gloves was shared by a Twitter user named Brian Rosenworcel.

Rosenworcel told CNN, "I was standing in line and I thought Paul was just there to vote, but then he starts handing out cookies to people in line. And he waited to greet people as they exited to say thanks for voting in the rain." He further noted that the actor was heard saying, "I want to say thank you for coming out and voting and doing your part."
Soon, more and more people took to Twitter to express their admiration for Rudd. CBS Sports host Luis Miguel Echegaray tweeted, "No need for Ant Man. Paul Rudd is a real hero" Another tweeted, "Paul Rudd was handing out cookies to voters standing in line to vote. This is what a true Patriot and hero looks like, so you agree?"

However, some of them used the opportunity to slam Rudd's co-star Chris Pratt, while dragging him for not being as vocal as Rudd with respect to the upcoming elections. The actor was recently subjected to criticism on Twitter, with the majority of them clamoring for him to be canceled. Pratt found himself trending on Twitter after rumors suggested that he was a "supporter" of President Donald Trump. However, the actor hadn't claimed such a thing.
The rumors were further fueled by the fact that he wasn't a part of the virtual fundraising event to support the Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden which was attended by other 'Avengers' stars such as Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Paul Rudd, Don Cheadle, and Zoe Saldana.
Furthermore, a few days ago, Pratt shared a post on Instagram to promote the movie 'Onward' and spoke about the importance of voting in a rather funny way, which didn't go well with many.
And when Rudd was seen encouraging the voters to fulfill their responsibilities by casting vote, Pratt once again became subject to criticism. While one tweeted, "Chris Pratt-moral questionable beliefs Paul Rudd-Hands out cookies to voters like a good baby," while another added, "And this is why we shall stan Paul Rudd and not, I repeat WE SHALL NOT stan Chris Pratt." Adding to the previous tweets, one said, “Paul rudd is a better chris than chris pratt”. Another Twitter user wrote, "Paul Rudd is handing out cookies. Chris Pratt is handing out Trump vodka."
