Ryan Reynolds, of Deadpool fame, just had his mother put Chris Hemsworth on blast.
Reading from a script—no doubt prepared by Reynolds himself—Tammy Reynolds flung the creative profanities with a wry grin and deadpan delivery.
“Chris Hemsworth is everyone’s least favorite Australian—and as a reminder, Hugh Jackman still exists.”
“Chris is a no good a**hat who looks like a bodybuilder f’ked a platypus.”
She then continued with a rant that was so censored it was difficult to even make out.
To my fellow @agboleague superhero fantasy football players. I don’t trash talk. Even if it’s “required”. Even if it benefits the astounding work of @sickkids hospital. Disparaging others isn’t what heroes do. I was raised to treat friends with respect. #ChrisHevansprine. pic.twitter.com/a6XsNvsRwt

Fortunately, Tammy Reynolds’ rant was far from genuine.
In fact, as Reynolds’ caption made clear, the tweet was meant to raise awareness for the SickKids Foundation—an organization committed to advancing new treatments and providing better medical care for children with a variety of afflictions.
The trash talk was all part of the AGBO Superhero Fantasy Football Charity League, which both Reynolds and Hemsworth have been participating in.
Both stars, along with several other Marvel actors like Paul Rudd, Robert Downey Jr., and Pom Klementieff, each played on behalf of a charity of their choosing.
The contest raised awareness and encouraged donations to 14 charities totalling $680,000.
Whether due to the humanitarian purpose behind it all—or simply because it was shocking to see Reynolds’ mom firing off insults like that—Twitter users loved the video.
I’m sorry Chris!!! But that’s funny as hell!!! 🤣 pic.twitter.com/Qv1qb8dAIy

I’m waiting now for all the Chris’s responses.

Right on cue, Hemsworth did create a video in response.
Starring alongside his “dad,” Hemsworth’s answer hopelessly fell on its face.

It was an internet moment with lots to love.
Plenty of humor, plenty of cussing, and all for a good cause.
