Chris PrattA strange tribute to his wife was posted. Katherine Schwarzenegger, on Instagram yesterday, saying she’s given him “an amazing life” and “a gorgeous healthy daughter.” On the surface, that may seem like a run-of-the-mill statement any husband might make. Twitter strongly disagrees. Here’s why.
Chris Pratt Also Had A Son with Anna Faris
Chris Pratt was married to Anna Faris for nine years before they split in 2018. Pratt began dating Schwarzenegger in 2018. Nine weeks prematurely, Jack was born to Faris in 2012. Jack was born prematurely, which meant that he has special needs and issues with his eyesight. Many surgeries and lots physical therapy were required in his first year of life.
So, as many on Twitter see it, specifically mentioning a “healthy daughter” while praising his current wife, Pratt seemingly took a shot at his ex and their son. The response has been intense.
“That ‘healthy daughter’ line actually made me want to barf” wrote one commenter, “bc I remember watching interviews from Anna Faris with her talking about their sons’ health issues but how smart and sweet he is.”
Another said, “This is absolutely disgusting. It reads like ‘my new wife gave me a *healthy* child unlike you, Anna Faris.’”
Yet another called him “not one of the good Chrises”, referring to the oft-discussed ranking of the Chrises in Hollywood, like Chris Evans, Chris Pine, and Chris Hemsworth, along with Pratt.
This all adds up into a trending topic on Twitter, with over 5,000 tweets. None of these are flattering to you Jurassic ParkStar. Some even claimed that they liked Pratt, but really loved Andy from Parks & Rec.
Others called out Pratt’s tweet for what they perceived as toxic masculinity.
It’s safe to say Pratt probably didn’t mean to come across as so callous and unloving towards the mother of his older son, but that doesn’t mean he did just that. It was a dicey thing to say and in today’s world, a celebrity has to be very careful about how their words will be received, not just their intent behind them.
