Popular actor and outspoken Christian Chris Pratt recently shared on social media about how God used his Christian music playlist to lift him out of a state of depression, after receiving criticism for an earlier Instagram post about his wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt, and daughter, Lyla Maria.
“We met in church. She’s given me an amazing life, a gorgeous healthy daughter,” Pratt posted on Instagram last week, speaking of his wife and his one year-old daughter.
Pratt also has a nine year-old son, Jack, whom he had with his then-wife Anna Farris. Jack was born two months premature, which has caused some ongoing health issues. In Farris’ memoir, she wrote, “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.”
Some were quick to try and cancel Pratt for his post, calling Pratt’s reference to his “healthy daughter” an insult to his son.
“I love Chris Pratt. but the ‘healthy daughter’ part made me wince,” one Twitter follower wrote. “Although he may not have meant it as an insult, it sort of came off that way. Imagine how that will make his son feel, if he ever reads it?”
Another said, “I feel bad for his son. He could have just said she gave me a beautiful daughter. He didn’t have to say beautiful HEALTHY daughter. Ugh. Sad.”
However, not everyone had issues with Pratt’s statement. One Twitter follower said, “Don’t you people have anything else to do besides criticize every little thing that people say. (sic) Mind your own beeswax!”
