Chris Pratt Warns Fans of Fake Facebook Account: ‘PERVY DUDE ALERT’

“Seriously would like to punch them right in the GD mouth,” the “Guardians of the Galaxy” star says

If you’ve been hit up — on hit on — by Chris Pratt on Facebook lately, we hate to break it to you: it’s not the “Guardians of the Galaxy” star, but a catfisher.

Pratt alerted fans Thursday night on his own — verified — social media channels. “PERVY DUDE ALERT!!! (Not a joke),” Pratt said. “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.”

He added that he finds the imposter’s behavior “reprehensible,” and that the account will get shut down if he finds out who it is. “Seriously would like to punch them right in the GD mouth,” he said. “You hear that imposter!? Stop.”

The “Jurassic Park” star warned fans to look for the blue “verified” checkmark next to the name on social media channels, and that any account without the checkmark is fake. “I’m sorry,” he added.

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 will@be very unhappy with the outcome. Go find Jesus. ???? praying for you.

Pratt also urged fans to “tell your siblings. Educate our young ones,” as it’s most likely kids who would be tricked by the catfisher.

“Makes me sick,” he continued. “It terrifies me to think someone could be hurt, their feelings or much worse, by this imposter/potential predator.”

He said several people have warned him about the imposter and it’s “not an isolated incident.”

Pratt ended with a message to the poser: “If it’s you doing it, I’m warning you. Stop right now or you will@be very unhappy with the outcome. Go find Jesus.  praying for you.”
