Chris Pratt took to social media recently to alert fans about an online imposture pretending to be him.
The actor let his fans know his warning should be taken seriously and that someone is posing as him with a fake account on Facebook -- And possibly other social media channels as well.
The imposture has been contacting female fans in the hopes of obtaining their phone numbers.
Pratt said if he finds out who is pretending to be him he will have the account shut down. He added he would like to punch them in the face.
He also let his fans know that any official account associated with his name online will have a blue verified check mark. If the account doesn't have that check mark, it's a fake account.
PERVY DUDE ALERT!!! (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. Please know, I find this behavior reprehensible. If I find out who it is I'll 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'm sorry. Tell your siblings. Educate our young ones. It's 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've had many, many people tell me about this. It's not an isolated incident. If anyone is in contact with this person block them immediately. If it's you doing it, I'm warning you. Stop right now or you [email protected] very unhappy with the outcome. Go find Jesus. ???? praying for you.
