Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky Prank Their Son on His Birthday and Cause a Slew of Opposite Reactions
A dose of silliness can not only brighten up family life, but can help kids build self-esteem, become more optimistic, and handle challenges better. Having a laugh with your loved ones is a way to connect and create unique memories. But not everyone shares the same sense of humor, and sometimes your inside jokes can come across as weird to outsiders.
Chris Hemsworth and his wife Elsa Pataky have divided opinions after pranking their son. On Monday, March 20, Hemsworth took to Instagram to celebrate his twin sons Tristan and Sasha’s ninth birthday. The photo shows the happy family standing in front of a birthday cake as Elsa pushes her son’s head down in the chocolate cake. The rest of their kids can be seen laughing while the Thor star stands beside them smiling.
The prank caused a stir in the comment section, with some users even calling out Chris and Elsa for being “cruel.” One user wondered: “Who wants cake all over their face... didn’t think so, so why would your kid? It’s so wasteful.”
On the other hand, some fans thought that the prank was an innocent ’’family tradition’’ that won’t cause any harm to the child and that was “just a bit of basic humor,” another agreed: “Those kids are gonna grow up able to take a joke and not be some little fairy who thinks having their head dipped in frosting is violent.”
The Hemsworths are known for their adventurous spirit, with their superstar dad often taking them to movie sets and challenging them with sports like skiing, snowboarding, surfing, and jiu-jitsu. They are not strangers to goofing around and playfully teasing each other, but obviously, not everyone shares the same sense of humor.
