If you think Chris Pratt sliding into your DMs is too good to be true, it’s because it is.
Late Thursday night, the Jurassic World star took to Instagram to post the “PERVY DUDE ALERT,” showing the imposter’s account and writing in the caption:
“(Not a joke) It’s confirmed: somebody is trying to pretend to be me on Facebook (and maybe other social media platforms) apparently hitting on a lot of different female fans, trying to get their numbers and who knows what else. I’m not joking.”
Livid and worried for his fans’ safety, the 38-year-old blasted the poser, vowing to “punch them right in the GD mouth” if he ever found out who is behind the “reprehensible” behavior.
Noting it’s “probably mostly kids who would fall for this,” the father of one reminded his followers that accounts with a blue “verified” check mark were the real deal — any other account claiming to be Pratt are fakes.
See the actor’s full post (below) — along with his grave warning to the imposter to stop with this sick behavior.
PERVY DUDE ALERT!!! (Not a joke) It├óΓé¼Γäós confirmed: somebody is trying to pretend to be me on Facebook (and maybe other social media platforms) apparently hitting on a lot of different female fans, trying to get their numbers and who knows what else. I├óΓé¼Γäóm not joking. Please know, I find this behavior reprehensible. If I find out who it is I├óΓé¼Γäóll have their account shut down and seriously would like to punch them right in the GD mouth. You hear that imposter!? Stop. My message to any fans who are contacted by someone claiming to be Chris Pratt: Look for the BLUE “VERIFIED” CHECKMARK next to the name. If there is no checkmark by my name that person is an imposter. I├óΓé¼Γäóm sorry. Tell your siblings. Educate our young ones. It├óΓé¼Γäós probably mostly kids who would fall for this. Makes me sick. It terrifies me to think someone could be hurt, their feelings or much worse, by this imposter/potential predator. I├óΓé¼Γäóve had many, many people tell me about this. It├óΓé¼Γäós not an isolated incident. If anyone is in contact with this person block them immediately. If it├óΓé¼Γäós you doing it, I├óΓé¼Γäóm warning you. Stop right now or you [email protected] very unhappy with the outcome. Go find Jesus. ├░┼╕Γäó┬Å praying for you.A post shared by chris pratt (@prattprattpratt) on Nov 30, 2017 at 10:52pm PST
So scary — however, it looks like Pratt’s warning worked.
After the Parks and Rec alum shared the warning to his social accounts, the imposter page seemed to have vanished. It’s unclear whether the person had deleted the account or if Facebook took it down.
Either way, the pervy enemy has been vanquished. Thanks, Star Lord!
