“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,” Pratt tweeted. “Can you please pray with me people!?”
Pratt’s second tweet was about Smith’s influence:
“Praying for you. I will continue to,” Pratt had said.
“You inspired me with Clerks when I was a senior HS. I’m tagging my Lb/rb football coach who showed me the movie cause he believed in me and knew I’d be inspired.”
This had come came about on Monday morning, and Smith had shared a selfie on the hospital bed and had explained that he was close to death:
“After the first show this evening, I had a massive heart attack,” Smith had tweeted.
“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!”
