Chris Pratt sparks anger from fans after ‘snubbing’ ex-wife Anna Faris again

Chris Pratt has received backlash from fans after sharing a Mother’s Day message on social media.

The Guardians of the Galaxy star faced criticism after he wrote a touching tribute to the mums in his life including wife Katherine Schwarzenegger, but did not mention ex Anna Faris, with whom he shares son Jack, 11.

“Happy Mother’s Day to all the mamas out there!” wrote the movie star. “Love to my Mom Kathy who set a high bar for her love, patience, humour, and joy in motherhood. And a special thank you my darling Katherine for all you do.”

He noted that Katherine has a “24/7” job” taking care of their daughters — Lyla, 3, and Eloise, 23 months — which includes “scheduling, transporting, loving, nurturing, managing calendars, planning activities,” not to mention her talents when it comes to “the nutrition, the boundaries, the rules, the patience, the gentleness, the firmness, the wisdom, and grace.”

“Witnessing you be a mom to Lyla and Eloise and a stepmom to Jack,” he added. “makes me fall more and more in love with you every day. It’s truly a marvel.”

Underneath, fans were quick to comment, with one writing: “Wait a minute where is Anna Faris?” and another hitting back: “Why would you not include Anna?”

It’s not the first time Pratt has been accused of snubbing his ex-wife.

It comes after Pratt said he “cried” in an Instagram post dedicated to his wife, resulting in backlash on social media.

“And ur [sic] other baby mama️? … And the other mother? … What about Jack’s mom?” critics demanded to know at the time, with one calling his lack of “appreciation” for “the one who gave you your first child” plain “gross”.

He told Men’s Health: “Then I gave her some s— in the thing and said ‘but I love you. I’m so thankful for my wife — she gave me a beautiful, healthy daughter.’

“And then a bunch of articles came out and said ‘that’s so cringe-worthy. I can’t believe Chris Pratt would thank her for a healthy daughter when his first child was born premature. That’s such a dig at his ex-wife.’ And I’m like, that is f—ed up.”
