LOS ANGELES, Dec 1 — Chris Pratt is warning his fans about someone who is pretending to be him on social media and hitting on female fans.

Pratt took to Facebook and Instagram to alert his female fans about an imposter who has been sending “pervy” messages on Facebook and to remind them not to respond to this person.  

“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 behaviour 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.”

Pratt also reminded his fans to always check for the blue “verified” check mark, as those are verified accounts. “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.”

Fearing for his younger fans as well, Pratt also urged his fans to spread the word and let everyone know to beware of the imposter.

“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 concluded.
