Jason Momoa calls out Chris Pratt for using a plastic water bottle, later apologises
The Aquaman actor had taken issue with the Guardians Of The Galaxy actor using a single-use plastic water bottle in a photo the latter had posted online.
Aquaman actor Jason Momoa has apologised to Chris Pratt after he called the Guardians Of The Galaxy actor out earlier for using a plastic water bottle.
Momoa had taken issue with Pratt’s use of a single-use plastic water bottle in a photo the latter had posted on his Instagram account. The photo, which was an advertisement for online retailer Amazon, showed Pratt in exercise gear and holding the bottle.
The 40-year-old Momoa commented on Pratt's post: "Bro I love you but wtf on the water bottle. No single use plastic. come on."
Pratt took the comment well and responded: "Aquaman! You're completely right. Dammit. I always carry my big gallon size reusable water jug with me too. I even had it that day!!! If I remember correctly somebody threw that plastic bottle to me in the photo shoot cause I didn't know what to do with my hands."
He added, "Love you too buddy. My bad. I don't want your home of Atlantis covered in plastic. Hear that kids? Reduce. Reuse. Recycle."
Momoa, who is currently starring in See on Apple TV+, took to Instagram again several hours later to apologise to Pratt for his earlier comments, which some people considered shaming.
He wrote: “Bro you know my children and I are madly in love with you and I love everything you do. I'm sorry this was received so badly today I didn't mean for that to happen.”
He added: “I'm just very passionate about this single use plastic epidemic. the plastic water bottles have to stop i hope u make a reusable water bottle for amazon so we all can purchase. You're an inspiration to many I'm one of them."
Momoa is an advocate for environmental issues; in April, he shaved his beard to promote the use of recyclable aluminium cans for water.
