Pratt’s controversial Instagram post on Wednesday ruffled a lot of feathers…
He has since shared that he’s been feeling “upset and depressed” after receiving countless messages slamming his “insane” caption.
People have not only criticized his tone-deaf comments directed at his wife Katherine Schwarzenegger…
But also Pratt’s total disregard for his son that he had with his ex-wife Anna Faris.

Now, there’s no doubt that Anna Faris has had an epic career.
If we rewind for a sec, some of her first movies were Take Me Home Tonight and What’s Your Number?
She’s an undeniably well-established actress.
In 2000, Anna had a starring role in Scary Movie – a spoof horror series that re-enacted scenes from famous horror scenes.
It was in this role of Cindy Campbell that people really started noticing her excellent timing.
She was later immortalized through her role in Friends.
Anna Faris was in the final series of Friends. She played the small-town pregnant lady, Erica, whose children Monica and Chandler were adopting.
Her character wasn’t so smart and most notably, hadn’t realized that she was pregnant with twins.
And of course, who can forget her role in The House Bunny?
Anna Faris was hilarious again her role as an exiled Playboy Bunny. This was also one of Emma Stone’s first roles, as she plays a nerdy college student who Anna Faris tries to change so that she’s more like a Playboy Bunny.
From 2013, she starred in the sitcom Mom.
The show is unique in not having any long-running male protagonists. Instead, it was a female-centric show that brilliantly showcases female comedy and issues.
But that came to an end rather abruptly…
As Anna unexpectedly quit the show causing a lot of speculation.
Anna is no stranger to making headlines.
Her relationship with Chris Pratt well and truly dominated the news cycle.
The pair married in 2009 and just a few years later, Anna gave birth to their son, Jack.
But in 2017, Anna and Chris separated, later filing for a divorce after 5 months apart.
Luckily, the pair have remained close.
They’re good friends and co-parents – so that’s something of a happy ending.
But recently Faris and Pratt have hit headlines for something that may put a strain on their friendship.
After Chris Pratt shared a post dedicated to his wife Katherine Schwarzenegger that “praised” her while using a controversial choice of words…
In Pratt’s seemingly “adoring” post to his wife, he thanked her for giving him “a gorgeous healthy daughter.”
“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 earbuds to drown it out, but that’s love!” he wrote.
Pratt and Schwarzenegger share a fourteen-month-old daughter named Lyla.
However, many think that his choice of words are insensitive to Faris and their son, 9-year-old, Jack.
Jack, was born 9 weeks premature and Faris has previously revealed that their son weighed just 3 pounds and twelve ounces at birth, The Independent reports.
Jack also spent the first month in the NICU.
Faris opened up about Jack’s birth in her memoir, Unqualified.
“The pediatric neurosurgeon sat Chris and me down to tell us that Jack had some severe brain bleeding and there was a chance that he could be developmentally disabled,” she wrote.
However, many people have pointed out that not only are Pratt’s words hurtful to Farris and his son…
He seems pretty out of touch with his comments surrounding his wife too.
Many fans were shocked at his choice of words…
“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.”
One commenter wrote a translation of what his post sounded like to them…
“Everybody check out my new breeder. She gave me a healthier baby than the last one, and look! She is my loyal servant. Tonight I will have the farmhand feed her an extra apple, so long as she does not disturb me with her loud chewing” – @prattprattpratt, basically.
While another wrote: “Did you just describe your wife as a possession?”
After countless fans slammed his post, Pratt has finally spoken out…
The actor took to his Instagram stories wearing an American flag hat and sweater, sharing that he “woke up feeling crappy.”
And people refused to sympathize with what he had to say…
“Good morning, everybody. 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,” he started off on his Stories…
Adding: “I knew, though, that if I put on my Christian music playlist and I got out in the woods and ran, that I’d feel better, but I just didn’t want to. I did it anyways and gosh was I right, it felt amazing. I got out in the woods, got my blood pumping, and God sat down there right there next to me.”
“I don’t get emotional that often, but I actually got emotional there in the woods…”
“I just felt like there was another in the fire standing next to me — that’s the song, actually, I think that’s the lyric in the song,” he continued.
“But that moment, it really captured me. So I just really want to say, all glory to God. If you feel down today, maybe exercise, maybe listen to some good worship music or get the word in, because it really helped me this morning.”
Um. Okay. That’s interesting. What do you think of his post?
