An video on Instagram of Chris Hemsworth flying in first class with his daughter divides viewers.
Critics said Hemsworth was showing off, but his fans said he deserved his luxurious lifestyle.
Some fans defended him by saying they would do the same: "I think anyone who could, would do it."
Fans defended Chris Hemsworth after people online criticized him for being "tone deaf" after he posted a video flying first-class with his daughter on Instagram.
In the video posted on Monday, Hemsworth's 11-year-old daughter, India, was shown lying in a flatbed in Emirates' first-class cabin. She was shown wearing headphones and watching the movie "Thor: Ragnarok," where Hemsworth starred as the famed Marvel superhero.
"I swear it was her choice #familyloyalty," Hemsworth, 40, wrote in the post's caption, which has garnered some two million likes at the time of writing.
But not everyone was happy with Hemsworth's video, with some people criticizing him for showing off.
"May she never know the inhumane conditions and human misery of present-day economy class," one user commented in Portuguese. Comments were made in at least five different languages.
Dozens of fans defended Hemsworth, with some saying that he deserved to fly first class and that the critics were just envious of his lifestyle.
"I can't afford first class, I can barely afford a flight. But I'm not getting upset, in fact I found this video adorable," one user wrote.
Another user commented: "I mean, if he has been able to earn a living, he can afford those luxuries. I think anyone who could, would do it, don't be jealous just because you don't have that."
