Avengers have assembled - this time, to protect their cast mate, Chris Pratt.
Twitter users eviscerated the actor after he was notably absent from a virtual Q&A held by the Avengers stars to raise money for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, which was hosted by Avengers: Infinity War directors Anthony and Joe Russo.
Tonight, the Avengers are assembling with real-life superhero @KamalaHarris for a grassroots fundraiser.
Time is running out to join them. Chip in to reserve your spot: https://t.co/kLqUKmDCjK pic.twitter.com/3wL1zcFFd6

Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Paul Rudd, Don Cheadle, and Zoe Saldana all supported the event, which was titled, 'Voters Assemble: The Cast of The Avengers Unite for Democracy.'
Fans, however, couldn't help but notice Pratt's conspicuous lack of attendance to the fundraiser, with many users declaring on social media that it was clearly evidence of his secret support of the controversial President Donald Trump.
One Twitter user commented: "Chris Pratt a Trump supporter?? Can't have shit in 2020 huh."
Another added: "Chris Pratt really wants us to feel bad for Chris Pratt and that's simply not going to happen while he secretly supports Donald Trump."
Meanwhile, others believed that Pratt not attending the fundraiser was blown way out of proportion, with one fan noting: "Chris Pratt doesn't go to a Biden fundraiser so he's a white supremacist according to people. So Robert Downey Jr, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Vin Diesel and others who didn't go are white supremacists as well?"
People on Twitter asked who was the best and worst Chris in the MCU, out of Chris Pratt, Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans and the Guardians of the Galaxy star came in last.
Since the situation unfolded, Chris Pratt's 'Avengers' co-stars Mark Ruffalo and Robert Downey came to their co-star's defence.
"You all, @prattprattpratt is as solid a man there is," Ruffalo tweeted out. "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."
Meanwhile, Robert Downey Jr suggested that those criticising the star should 'delete their social media accounts'.
MCU fans were also upset that Avengers stars didn't come to support Captain Marvel's Brie Larson when she was facing an enormous amount of negative social media attention.
But this isn't the first time the Pratt has come under fire for his Christian beliefs, with the star forced to respond to claims last year that he supported a notoriously anti-LGBTQ church.
"It has recently been suggested that I belong to a church which 'hates a certain group of people' and is 'infamously anti-LGBTQ,' he wrote in 2019 while addressing the drama.
"Nothing could be further from the truth. I go to a church that opens their doors to absolutely everyone," he said.
"Despite what the Bible says about divorce my church community was there for me every step of the way, never judging, just gracefully accompanying me on my walk. They helped me tremendously offering love and support. It is what I have seen them do for others on countless occasions regardless of sexual orientation, race or gender."
