Watch out! Chris Pratt is not here for the impostors.

The Guardians of the Galaxy actor, 38, shared a lengthy Instagram post on Friday, December 1, warning fans about someone who is pretending to be him and hitting on female fans and trying to get their phone numbers through fake social media accounts – and he had a lot to say.

“I’m not joking,” he wrote. “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.”

After his initial threat, the father of 5-year-old-Jack, whom he shares with estranged wife Anna Faris, went on to detail his concern: “Tell your siblings. Educate our young ones. It’s probably mostly kids who would fall for this. Makes me sick.”

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.

He continued: “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 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.”

Fans expressed thanks to the Jurassic World star for his concern, and some even shared their experiences with the fraudulent account. “This happened to me on Facebook messenger. Glad you found out,” one follower wrote.

Pratt is quite active on social media, and even announced his separation from Faris in a statement on Instagram in August. The couple, who had met on the set of Take Me Home Tonight in 2007, were married for eight years.
