Kevin Smith tweeted about an incredibly scary medical emergency early in the morning:
After the first show this evening, I had a massive heart attack. The Doctor who saved my life told me I had 100% blockage of my LAD artery (aka “the Widow-Maker”). If I hadn’t canceled show 2 to go to the hospital, I would’ve died tonight. But for now, I’m still above ground! pic.twitter.com/M5gSnW9E5h

Actor Chris Pratt offered this encouragement and asked others to join in:
Kevin we don’t know each other too good but I have loved you since Clerks and I’m praying my ass off for you cause I believe in the healing power of prayer. Can you please pray with me people!? ?♥️ https://t.co/syB7BiQaoY

Great support! But you might know what was just around the corner.
Since it's 2018, more than a few people are actually angry about this tweet. https://t.co/KKNzAc6LPP

This should not be a controversial tweet, but somehow it is. Twitter can be awful sometimes. https://t.co/Iw4xgJo392

Actor offers support and prayers for another that suffered massive heart attack. People get offended and get after him in his mentions.
What a time to be alive. https://t.co/dpKkJUaPNY

People like Neil Tyson and Bill Nye haven't taught people a single thing about science. They've only taught people how to be jerks, like the people "actuallying" this tweet. https://t.co/Qdyq375YTM

I’m not a religious guy but I just wanted to say I support you. The people bashing you for a totally innocent tweet are being completely ridiculous.

Great now I won't enjoy your films as much knowing you're a Jesus nut

Something about prayer is considered wildly offense to some.
no. a doctor saved him. not a spaggetti monster

That's cool and everything but Doctors and nurses save lives not prayer.

No!!! Please tell me you are being sarcastic! I don't want Chris Pratt to be a god botherer.

I was disappointed today to discover that Chris Pratt and I have some serious theological incompatibilities. Otherwise, we are a perfect couple. https://t.co/7q6t5Q0SJT

That’s it, Kev….
Unhook all that shit.
Chris is setting up a prayer circle.
Fuck me sideways. https://t.co/fnfdSjFkWx

If you wanna help, actually help. Praying is just a way to feign helping so you don’t have to go out of your way
