Working Class Guardian?

Chris Pratt runs afoul of Hollywood's defenders after criticizing Hollywood:
The “Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2” star said today’s polarizing political climate is keeping people from relating to one another. Pratt, who is from Washington state but now lives in Los Angeles, dared to suggest he could help bridge those differences, since he doesn’t feel he fits neatly into either established political side.

“I really feel there’s common ground out there that’s missed because we focus on the things that separate us,” he told the magazine. “You’re either the red state or the blue state, the left or the right. Not everything is politics. And maybe that’s something I’d want to help bridge because I don’t feel represented by either side.”

But Pratt was met with backlash almost immediately after Men’s Fitness published his comments.
....

Pratt responded on Twitter to the Marie Claire piece, writing: “That was actually a pretty stupid thing to say. I’ll own that. There’s a ton of movies about blue-collar America.”
For every "flyover country" movie they make, they make a dozen others that have nothing to do with flyover country. Sounds about right for people who don't know any actual blue collar people.
