Ryan Reynolds’ mother Tammy goes on an expletive-laden rant against Chris Hemsworth: ‘He is a no-good a**hat’
Ryan Reynolds is getting creative about his trash talking.
The Deadpool actor is a member of a fantasy football league that is also shared by his 37-year-old pal, who is best known for portraying Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Lending a hand: Ryan Reynolds’ mother Tammy sent an expletive-filled message to Chris Hemsworth in a video posted to her son’s Twitter account on Monday
Other members of the league include fellow Marvel stars Chris Pratt, Anthony Mackie and Karen Gillan, along with director Joe Russo and sports analyst Matthew Berry.
The video begins with Tammy introducing herself, and noting that her son insisted that she read a statement he had written that was directed at Hemsworth.
‘Chris Hemsworth is everyone’s least favorite Australian. And as a reminder, Hugh Jackman still exists.’
Reynolds and the Logan actor have engaged in a lighthearted social media-based feud for the last few years, which was referenced in the first Deadpool movie, when the character stapled a paper cutout of Jackman’s face onto his own.
A good cause: The video was meant to promote a charity fantasy football league that the two actors are involved in; Reynolds is seen in 2019
Putting it down: Tammy referred to Hemsworth as ‘everyone’s least favorite Australian’; he is seen in 2019
She continued: ‘Chris is a no-good a**hat who looks like a bodybuilder f***ed a platypus.’
Her subsequent line featured the most bleeps in the entire video, with Tammy noting that, ‘only a mother can say this next part.’
Afterwards, she apologized for her son’s message, stating: ‘I am so sorry for my son Ryan, Chris. You know, it’s my fault, I brought him up wrong.’
The message contained one last dig at Hemsworth, with Tammy opining that, ‘I loved you in Wonder Woman! It was the best’; Chris Pine starred in the 2017 movie.
One last dig: Reynolds placed a photoshopped image of Hemsworth’s face photoshopped onto Chris Pratt’s body at the end of the video
The video finished with an image of the Thor actor’s face photoshopped onto the body of Chris Pratt portraying Star-Lord with the message: ‘Thanks Mom! Love, Ryan.’
Reynolds continued the joke with his Twitter caption, which snidely read that: ‘Disparaging others isn’t what heroes do. I was raised to treat friends with respect.’
The Agbo Superhero Fantasy Football Charity League benefits a number of organizations with a variety of philanthropic outputs, including the Australian Childhood Foundation, Unicef Canada, and SickKids Foundation.
The Deadpool franchise star has gained attention for his previous charity-related efforts, including co-opting his aforementioned feud with Hugh Jackman into generating revenue for the latter’s Laughing Man Foundation.
Wide reach: The fantasy football league is made up of a number of actors who featured in MCU movies, all of whom have a specific charity they play for
