It seems that the internet’s love for Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord could be coming to an end this weekend. Fans who had the chance to check out Marvel‘s Avengers: Infinity War this weekend seem to blame the character for the film’s catastrophic ending.
Here’s what the fans have to say about Star-Lord’s complete lack of self control:
Another thing Spider-Man shoulda shot a web at Star Lord's mouth. That's all imma say.

Starlord is that dude in your crew in high school who is the whole reason you wind up having to fight your way out of a party at 2 in the morning.

However, some fans did come to the character’s defense:
Star-Lord is an idiot for overreacting, but just know, the most important character (who is not Thanos) in that fight allowed that to happen

It’s hard to argue with fans who are mad at Star-Lord. If he hadn’t lost his cool, Iron Man and Spider-Man would have been able to remove the Infinity Gauntlet and save all the Avengers. Still, given their relationship, it’s no surprise that Star-Lord was so upset about Gamora’s death.

Here is the synopsis for Avengers: Infinity War:
As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
