Earlier this week, Kevin Smith suffered a massive heart attack. While he should be home recovering in peace and quiet, he's instead of having to defend Chris Pratt.

So here's what happened...Chris Pratt was kind enough to send Kevin Smith a tweet after his heart attack. The two don't know each other very well, but Pratt felt the need to let Smith know he was praying for him.

Of course, the internet went ballistic on Chris Pratt. So much so, that Kevin Smith had to step in and tell people to leave him alone. Not only did he make a video giving Pratt a "thank you for the prayers," but he also mentioned him in an Instagram comment.

Home again, home again, jiggety-jig! Home is where the heart is and the heart is feeling good! It’s actually getting more blood flow and oxygen than it has in a long time. So I am ALERT, to say the least! I just wanted to thank you all for the kind words you took the time to write to me about what my work has meant to you. In the last two days, I’ve read some breathtaking sentiments that have profoundly touched me. It honestly means the world under normal circumstances, but after Sunday night? Everything means so much more, obviously. Seriously- THANK you, everybody (special thanks to @prattprattpratt for the prayers) - from Vegetarian Kev, Day 2! #KevinSmith #WidowMakerBreaker

James Gunn, Director of Guardians of the Galaxy also spoke up about Pratt's prayers. In 8 tweets...

And it's not like Chris Pratt needs celebrities to defend him. He can handle it. The proof? He pinned his prayers tweet to the top of his account.
