Chris Hemsworth And Elsa Pataky Are Getting Dragged For Dunking Their Kid’s Head On His Birthday Cake
Mommy bloggers, assemble! Page Six reports that Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky are getting dragged for their “violent” parenting prank. The couple has three kids: 10-year-old India Rose, and twin boys Tristan and Sasha, who turned nine this past weekend. To celebrate, 39-year-old Chris and 46-year-old Elsa got a chocolate birthday cake and shoved one of their sons’ (twins, impossible to identify) faces into it as a joke. Then Chris posted a pic of the stunt to Instagram, which was a big mistake, HUGE. Cuz people on the Internet have ‘pinions. And you bet your chocolate-covered face they’re gonna share ’em.
Here’s Chris’ post. In the caption, he jokes that there’s “only one way to eat cake in this house, and that’s to have mum slam your head into it face first!!”:
As you can clearly see, Twin #1 is practically suffocating in chocolate frosting, and many commenters weren’t having it. via Page Six:
“Why people smash their kid’s face in the cake is above my understanding but whatever,” one critic wrote in the comment section. “Why do people think this is funny?” another wrote, before a third added, “It’s so violent.”
“In my country [this is] done, but it’s very poorly [looked upon] because several accidents have already happened,” a fourth chimed in.
Other commenters defended Elsa and Chris, writing that it was “just a bit of play” and Elsa, who is Spanish, was pulling a classic “Latina mom” move. Oh yeah, then why is the dog in the background running to get the police? “Ruff ruff, CHILD ABUSE, ruff ruff!”
I was genuinely curious about the “several accidents” that the one commenter was referring to, so I Googled. Apparently, one lady almost lost an eye when her friend shoved her face into a multi-layered cake that was supported by sharp wooden sticks. NO, THANK YOU, PLEASE. But, if you’re totally sure there aren’t any sticks or knives or guns inside the cake, is there any actually danger? Other than utter humiliation that eventually develops into debilitating social anxiety and years of birthday cake-related therapy? It’s not like Elsa and Chris pushed the kid’s head into the cake when the candles were still lit, a la Dorinda Medley:
In Dorinda’s case, 60% of her body is made up of alcohol (specifically gin from all those dirty martinis), so she’s lucky her entire face didn’t explode the moment it hit the candles. KaBOOM!
