"Maybe address that too?"

Last week, Ellen Page's interview with Stephen Colbert went viral after she called out leaders who promote hate.

In the interview, Ellen said she's lucky to have the time and privilege to speak out.

Well on Friday, the Hollywood Reporter tweeted an article about Chris Pratt talking to Colbert about his "spiritual side":

Ellen quote-tweeted the article to call out Pratt and his church, which she says is "infamously anti LGBT":

Oh. K. Um. But his church is infamously anti lgbtq so maybe address that too? https://t.co/meg8m69FeF

Pratt's church, Zoe, is modeled after Hillsong, according to its founder. Hillsong states that homosexuality is a sin, and does not allow gay members to hold leadership roles.

"We still love them and acknowledge that they — like all of us — are on a journey, and our role as a church is to assist them on this journey with grace and compassion," the Hillsong statement said, when referring to the gay couple that was not allowed to participate in leadership choir roles.

People praised her for speaking up.

Netflix should give Ellen Page a show where she just goes around blowing up the causal homophobia of other celebs. Call it "Come Ellen High Water" or whatever. https://t.co/k7ZEVGMDhm

Ellen Page said you homophobes can breathe when I let you

I second this. https://t.co/3pNfiNOYKi
