Chris Hemsworth's 'tone-deaf' plane post with daughter causes backlash

Aussie actor Chris Hemsworth's first class plane post has irked a number of fans.

Chris Hemsworth's latest post has faced backlash, with fans calling the Australian actor ‘utterly tone-deaf’ for sharing a video of his daughter in her First Class seat on a plane.

The 40-year-old Thor actor uploaded footage to his Instagram account showing his 11-year-old daughter, India Rose, all tucked up under a blanket as she sprawled out in her massive seat with a pair of noise-canceling headphones on.

The camera then pans to what she’s watching on the huge screen in front of her - her dad’s film, Thor: Ragnarok.

“I swear it was her choice #familyloyalty,” Chris captioned the video.


While many fans loved the fact that Chris’ daughter had chosen to watch her dad while she was flying across the world, others couldn't look past the size of the First Class cabin.

“Your daughter choosing daddy’s movie on her massive first class seat? Cute. The fact that almost none of your fans will ever even come close to flying in a seat like that and you don’t even realize that… utterly tone-deaf (sic),” one fan wrote.

Another agreed, saying: “May she never know the inhumane conditions and human misery of present day economy class.”

“I’m wondering if CH posts these videos to just make more millions or if he is just like in your face suckers,” another person wrote.

Others stuck up for the actor, saying that ‘he earned it’ and ‘let his family enjoy it’.

“Truth be told, if I could afford first class, I’d sure as hell wouldn’t be putting my kids in economy. Am I envious? Of course, am I surprised? Not at all,” one person wrote.

“People getting triggered Chris’s family flying first class … if you could do the same you would … good on ya mate!,” another person said.

“This is so cool! I haven't seen the interior of first class before #goals,” a fan wrote.
