Chris Pratt is in an unexpected online spat with a beekeeper!
The actor took to Instagram to tell his followers about a recent incident where he recently came face-to-face with a beehive and said watching Erica Thompson videos of beehive manager “created this false sense of security.” To believe that he can handle his backyard beehive on his own. He has previously taken on dinosaurs and various alien species.
“She goes in front of these hives and bees and says, ‘They’re so quiet today. I’m going to remove the bee. I’m going to use my bare hands,'” Pratt said of Thompson. “I said, I think I can control bees, too, so I saw a beehive two days ago … I looked at these bees, and one of them came out and it stung my eye.”
“Anyway, f**k that bee lady,” Pratt concluded.

He took off his sunglasses to reveal his puffy eyes as he told the story. “@texasbeeworks you inspire me!” He gave Thompson some favors by writing, and tagging her in the post’s caption.
While most of the comments section was filled with Pratt’s friends and fans laughing at the actor’s plight, Thompson himself didn’t seem to enjoy his story, essentially telling him to stick to acting and leave the bees alone.
“Wait—so you’re going to be a plumber and a beekeeper @prattprattpratt?! If you leave saving the bees to me and other professionals, you can focus on saving Princess Mario,” Thompson wrote in the comments section.
Thompson was referring to Pratt’s latest role as Italian plumber Mario in the new animated movie, “The Super Mario Bros. Movie.” The movie is based on a popular video game franchise in which Mario tries to save his love interest, Princess Peach, from the evil dinosaur Bowser.
The film will feature fan-favorite characters from the Super Mario Bros. video game, including Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Bowser, Donkey Kong, and the Penguin King. In the movie, instead of Mario trying to save Peach from Bowser, the two of them are traveling across the country to find Luigi so they can team up together to take Bowser down.
Pratt is also set to star in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” the third installment of the popular Marvel franchise. Zoe Saldana will return as Gamora in the third film, making her last appearance in that role in a Guardians film as her character passed away in the previous Avengers film.
