An Instagram conversation between Jason Momoa and Chris Pratt, who play the superheroes Aquaman of DC Comics and Star-Lord of Marvel respectively, has captured the attention of fans.
The situation generated a tense debate among social network users, motivating Momoa to apologize to the actor and the followers.
It all started because Pratt published a sponsored photograph on his account, in which he related that he joined Amazon to promote items he uses to train.
The problem is that in the image, the actor appears holding a disposable bottle of water.

You’re probably wondering why I’m standing here, low key flexing, gazing into the distance… well, turns out I'm teaming up with @amazon to show you guys everything I use for my workouts, keeping active, and all that fun stuff to get you prepped for 2020. #FoundItOnAmazon #Amazon #Ad http://www.amazon.com/chrispratt
Momoa is a recognized environmental activist and has been especially critical of single-use plastics that pollute the planet and have invaded the oceans.
The DC star even has its own brand of mineral water, Mananalu, which is sold in aluminium cans, one of the most recycled materials today.
Therefore, he did not like anything that Pratt appeared ‘promoting’ bottled water in plastic.
“Bro, I love you, but what the fuck with the water bottle. Not to single-use plastic. Come on, ” he wrote.
His comment generated a lot of support among users, with many people adding to Momoa’s questioning, so Chris Pratt later replied.
The Marvel hero explained “Aquaman! You’re right. Damn. I’m always with my reusable water bottle the size of a gallon. I even had it that day !!! If I remember correctly, someone threw me that plastic bottle during the photo session because I didn’t know what to do with my hands! I never know what to do with my hands! How awkward. ”
“Really yes. I love you too, buddy. It was my mistake. I don’t want your Atlantis home to be covered in plastic. Did you hear that, kids? Reduce. Reuse Recycle, ”he added.
Due to the controversy that caused his message, Momoa then responded to Pratt on his own Instagram, with a photograph where he appears with his son, daughter and Star Guardians of the Galaxy.
“Bro, you know that with my children we are completely in love with you and I love everything you do. I regret that this (the comment) was received so badly, it was not my intention that this should happen. It’s just that I’m very passionate about the epidemic of single-use plastics, ”he said.
He added that “disposable water bottles have to run out. I hope you make a reusable water bottle with Amazon, so we can all buy it. You are an inspiration to many, I am one of them. I will send you a box of Mananalu. All my Aloha. “
