Ruffalo added that Pratt "is just not overtly political as a rule."

A second user said: "Silence is violence, Mark. Your friends aren't excluded from that."
Another person added: "Avoiding the topic in this day and age is not cutting it.
"Silence is complicity.
"If he doesn't want people to see it that way, all he has to do is open his mouth and say the words."
A fourth person said: "'Not being political' is not acceptable as fascism emerges in America.
"When good men do nothing, evil wins."
Another starkly responded to Mark Ruffalo's tweet: "Not being overtly political is one of the most political acts there is."
'SILENCE IS VIOLENCE'
Earlier this week, Chris Pratt was branded the "worst Chris in Hollywood" as trolls attack him for his Christian faith and allegedly supporting Donald Trump.
Avengers co-stars Robert Downey Jr and Mark Ruffalo have stepped in to defend Pratt, claiming he is a "real Christian."
He was the subject of a poll where users decided which Chris should be 'removed' from Hollywood.
The competition was between the 41-year-old actor, Chris Pine, Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth.
People were also quick to notice that Pratt was not among the six Avengers stars who agreed to appear at a fundraiser for Joe Biden on Tuesday.
Pratt has never spoken publicaly about the political party he supports, although it's believed he donated to President Barack Obama's campaign in 2012, Newsweek reported.
Katherine Schwarzenegger, Pratt's wife, had earlier slammed the "mean" social media posts comparing the stars named Chris.
"Is this really what we need?" Schwarzenegger she wrote.
"There's so much going on in the world and people struggling in so many ways. Being mean is so yesterday.
"There's enough room to love all these guys. Love is what we all need not meanness and bullying. Let's try that."
