Fans slam Chris Pratt over 'problematic' Insta post about his wife
The caption doesn't have much regard for his ex-wife or his son either
In the post, Pratt mentions the way she looks at him, how they met and all of her quirks - the usual stuff. He then goes on to talk about how she's given him "a gorgeous healthy daughter", which is in fact the comment people have responded negatively to.
Pratt was married to Anna Faris between 2009 and 2018 and the two share a nine-year-old son called Jack. After being born premature, Jack arrived with a number of health conditions including cerebral haemorrhaging, slight vision and muscle issues in his legs. All that being said, much of social media think referencing his daughter Lyla's good health is a bit of a dig against Faris.
Even as a HUGE fan of his Marvel work, I'm afraid I have to jump on this bandwagon... FUCK CHRIS PRATT. The small jab at Anna Faris and nearly washing his hands of his medically challenged son with her is absolutely disgusting. I'd be fine if GOTG 3 opens with starlord dying.. pic.twitter.com/rO5HnSpRvm

Those who could also relate to having a child with special needs or some form of disability were incensed at the comment, unintentional or not.
This particular woman had no time for the debate of whether the post qualified as "cringe" or not, only to declare that both "deserve better":
I have two children. One is special needs. If someone described only one of my children as healthy and gorgeous, I’d probably lose my shit. Anna Faris and her beautiful son deserve better than these cheap shots. https://t.co/heiQc2QpZt

While Pratt, 42, has landed huge roles in Guardians of the Galaxy, the Jurassic World franchise and more, Faris has been a familiar face in Hollywood for decades now, with big roles in the Scary Movie series,
This particular showbiz story only seems to be reminding them of how much they love her work and her relationship with her son.
Chris Pratt can keep his amazing wife and her Stepford Wife stare.

Faris, 42, has been open about her pregnancy struggles and we're sure that Pratt meant no offence with his comments, but it's easy to see how it has rubbed people the wrong way.
To make matters worse, some casual web sleuths also went so far as to look into the church which Pratt says he met his current wife, discovering some rather unsavoury details:
Saw this somewhere else re the Prat and thought it was interesting. Don't know how accurate it is but it does sum up some of what's been said about him in this thread. pic.twitter.com/kpoP9WWJpM
