Jurassic World’s Chris Pratt Apologizes In Advance For His Stupidity/Insensitivity …

Chris Pratt Apologizes for ‘JurassicGate’ Before it Happens.

With his film “Jurassic World” hitting theaters next month, the actor is preparing for the upcoming press tour by apologizing in advance for anything offensive he might say. “I want to make a heartfelt apology for whatever it is I end up accidentally saying during the forthcoming #JurassicWorld press tour,” he wrote Friday on his Facebook page. “I hope you understand it was never my intention to offend anyone and I am truly sorry. Chris Pratt is everywhere right now – including the cover of EW’s Must Issue – but with a massive press tour for Jurassic World on the horizon, he’s about to become ubiquitous.

I am just dumb.” It’s possible Pratt’s apology is meant to reference, in part, the brouhaha surrounding the “Avengers,” when actors Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans apologized after making “tasteless” jokes about a female “Avengers” character in April. Or maybe, with his propensity for drinking bottles of whiskey during promotional videos, he figures its best to cover his bases before embarking on his “global press blitz.” “With social media the way it is and click bait marketing online you will have a front row seat to all of the promotional action if you so chose,” he writes, before warning, “There will be a lot. But after experiencing countless press junkets himself, and watching how members of the Avengers: Age of Ultron cast crashed and burned while promoting their film, Pratt figures it’s better to be safe than sorry.

But that’s up to you.” Fortunately, he already has a plan for those who might feel overwhelmed by the hoopla surrounding a blockbuster release: “If it gets old or you grow weary of my face just remember, you could always do what I did while waiting for the original Jurassic Park to open, go outside and play with imaginary dinosaurs! When I do (potentially) commit the offensive act for which I am now (pre) apologizing you must understand I (will likely have been) tired and exhausted when I (potentially) said that thing I (will have had) said that (will have had) crossed the line. I am fully aware that the subject matter of my imminent forthcoming mistake, a blunder (possibly to be) dubbed “JurassicGate” is (most likely) in no way a laughing matter. It’s a huge project in every aspect, a massive commercial undertaking that should be witnessed in IMAX theatre if possible based simply on the magnitude of its technological accomplishment.

The point of apologizing is that you know exactly what you’re apologizing for, and can be very specific both about what you did, and to whom you’re apologizing. Instead, I hope that this humorous pre-apology means that, despite exhaustion or a need to entertain the folks around him, that he’s planning on being a little more mindful of what he says; that he’s thinking about that in advance, too – not just about preemptively covering his own butt.

Grab your kids, family, friends, girlfriends, boyfriends, grandparents, mailmen, etc., get some popcorn and create a memory y’all will cherish forever. That said, I’m excited about what he has to say about the actual film as he embarks on Jurassic World press, and totally think you should follow his advice about playing with dinosaurs: This is a motion picture so beautifully executed by Colin Trevorrow and the people at Universal it left me utterly speechless. Needless to say you will be seeing A LOT of me in the press in the next few weeks as I circle the globe promoting the movie in different markets around the world. And after your children, little brothers, little sisters, nephews, grandchildren, weird neighbor kids, and others, etc. finish seeing our movie that’s what they will be doing anyways so practice now!
