Chris Pratt has been urged to delete a “hideous” post on Instagram.

The actor, whose new Marvel film Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 is out Friday (5 May), shared a photo of his foot, zoning in on his crusty toenail.

He captioned the image: “Met Gala Look,” referencing the star-studded event that occurred in New York on Monday (1 May).

Pratt then proceeded to photoshop his crusty toenail over the faces of some celebrities who attended the Met Gala, including Doja Cat, whom he nicknamed “Toeja cat”, Rihanna (“Rhitoetoe”), and Jared Leto, or in Pratt’s words, “Jared Letoe”.

He also photoshopped the toenail onto the face of Dua Lipa, calling her “Toe Lipa”.

Some of his followers were disgusted by the image, with one person writing: “Chris Pratt’s toenail was not what I expected to see when opening insta, but I sure can’t unsee it.”

“It’s not too late to delete this,” another person pointed out, with an additional follower writing: ”The hideousness of that foot will haunt my dreams forever.”

One person who was left confused by the post, which was branded “haunting” by another fan, was his mother-in-law, Maria Shriver.

The mother of Pratt’s wife Katherine Schwarzenegger replied: “What is this.”
