Chris Hemsworth criticized for sneaking daughter onto Disneyland attraction

Chris Hemsworth, most known for fighting evil all across the universe as Thor, is coming under fire from his castmates after revealing the father took his daughter on a Disneyland ride even though she wasn’t tall enough.

In a recent press stop for “Avengers: Endgame,” Chris Hemsworth and his castmates all stopped by “Jimmy Kimmel Live” to discuss the new film, where Hemsworth also shared a comical story of how the father snuck his daughter onto a Disneyland attraction, which all his castmates and some fans on Twitter gave him slack for.

Last week, the Avengers united at Disneyland to celebrate a $5 million grant to benefit children’s hospitals, which the group spoke about on their appearance at “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” While discussing the benefit, Hemsworth also decided to share a story from that same appearance involving his daughter who really wanted to get on one of the theme park’s attractions (Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout!), even though she wasn’t tall enough.

Hemsworth, who didn’t want to disappoint his daughter, decided to stuff her shoes with candy bars so she’d meet the height requirement. “So I grabbed a couple of Snicker bars and slammed it in the back of her shoe under the heel,” Hemsworth explained. “And they’re like okay, in you come,” said Hemsworth.

Hemsworth explained the story in a silly way. However, his castmate Scarlet Johansson was not fond of the story. “It’s wildly irresponsible as well,” she told Hemsworth.

Similar to Johansson, some fans on Twitter were not thrilled by the story and Hemsworth’s ability to bypass the park’s safety procedures. Although, some also thought it was hilarious.

During the interview, other cast mates also chimed in with their thoughts of disagreement. “I grab on to her, she is screaming the whole way down,” Hemsworth said.

In the end, Hemsworth did acknowledge that he had not made the best decision after all, to which Robert Downey Jr. responded “Maybe!” Hemsworth said he probably wouldn’t do it again, but let fans know that his daughter is “fine.”

    I remember my parents putting lifts in my timberland boots so I could ride splash mountain and tower of terror as a kid. I was always short and loved thrill rides. I would just swap shoes in a stroller when I wanted to go on a thrill ride.

    Whatever…im sure if a normal adult did this they would be charged with child endagerment…but hey……at least he didnt spoil Endgame. Our society has priorities after all

    A Snickers bar is a half-inch tall — the daughter was that close? I don’t see the problem…

    My kid couldn’t get on to Aerosmith’s coaster @ WDW so we took a free fast pass for the next visit when she was older…..because there’s a reason why they have those “you must be this tall” things – it’s for safety. I didn’t want her slipping out of the bars or straps and dying.

    And THIS is just why the height restrictions are in place. He put his daughter in danger, put cast manners jobs at risk and put other park goers at risk of seeing a potentially dangerous situation. Just because he is a celebrity doesn’t give him that right (and this is coming from an Australian – don’t think we’re going to defend these actions just because he’s one of us)

    Y’all, she was maybe a half inch too short. It’s not that big of a deal. Not to mention, it sounds like she kept the snickers bars in there the whole time, which would make her tall enough anyways. It’s not really any different from wearing a pair of short heels so that you can go on all the rides.

    He did not take his daughter during this “experience” as this article states. He clearly stated in the interview that it was a prior time they were at thepark, when the ride was Tower of Terror.

    She almost flew out of the ride that is what isn’t being stated. So yes he really did his daughter a disservice and she really could have been hurt. So saying it is no big deal is really wrong because it is a huge deal someone could have lost their job if she got hurt.
