Chris Pratt says he’s been left depressed after he faced an ungodly amount of backlash for a recent Instagram post.
If you’re a devout follower of Adult Humor, you’ll have seen that we brought you the story of how the actor’s social media tribute to his wife led to him receiving thousands of messages of criticism.
Take a look at the caption of the post, and see if you can notice why he’s become the internet’s punchbag for the day.
GUYS. FOR REAL. LOOK HOW SHE’S LOOKING AT ME! I MEAN. FIND YOU SOMEBODY THAT LOOKS AT YOU LIKE THAT!! YOU KNOW!? WE MET IN CHURCH. SHE’S GIVEN ME AN AMAZING LIFE, A GORGEOUS HEALTHY DAUGHTER, SHE CHEWS SO LOUDLY THAT SOMETIMES I PUT IN MY EAR BUDS TO DROWN IT OUT, BUT THAT’S LOVE! SHE HELPS ME WITH EVERYTHING. IN RETURN, PERIODICALLY, I OPEN A JAR OF PICKLES. THAT’S THE TRADE. HER HEART IS PURE AND IT BELONGS TO ME. MY GREATEST TREASURE RIGHT NEXT TO MY KEN GRIFFEY JR UPPER DECK ROOKIE CARD. WHICH IF YOU KNOW, YOU KNOW IS SAYING A LOT. IT’S HER BIRTHDAY IN ABOUT 6 WEEKS. SO IF I DON’T GET HER ANYTHING, I’LL TELL HER TO LOOK BACK ON THIS POST. LOVE YOU HONEY.
The post received more than 30,000 comments, with some criticising the actor for thanking his wife Katherine Schwarzenegger for giving him a “healthy daughter”, given that his 9-year-old son with ex Anna Faris, Jack, has suffered serious health issues over the years.
One person commented:
“Chris Pratt has a kid with Anna Farris [sic] who suffered a cerebral hemorrhage during birth and now has slight physical disabilities because of it. But he made sure to write ‘healthy daughter’ here. Chris Pratt is a dick.”
Pratt has since responded to the criticism, saying the comments left him feeling depressed.
He said on Instagram:
“I went to bed last night really kind of upset and depressed and I woke up feeling crappy and I didn’t want to work out.”
Thankfully, the Guardians of the Galaxy star snapped himself out of it by listening to Christian music.
“I knew that if I put on my Christian music playlist and I got out of the woods and ran that I’d feel better but I just didn’t want to and I did it anyways and gosh was I right. It felt amazing. I got out of the woods, got my blood pumping.”
Pratt, who is now married to Katherine Schwarzenegger, went on to say: “I don’t get emotional that often but I actually got emotional out in the woods. It felt like there was another in the fire standing next to me.”
