Ryan Reynolds is defending the decision to bring Make-A-Wish children onto the set of the upcoming “Deadpool 2”.
The Canadian star posted photos on Instagram Monday showing children from Make-A-Wish America and the Children’s Wish Foundation visiting the film’s set along with a heartfelt message applauding the bravery of children fighting cancer.

One of the best parts of playing the Big Red Jackass is welcoming @makeawishamerica and @childrenswishfoundation onto set. Deadpool kicked Cancer in the taint, but these kids do it for real every day. These foundations make dreams come true for a lot of of super-brave kids. They also make dreams come true for parents, who just wanna see their kid smile. HUGE thanks to our Prop Master, Dan Sissons, for making sure every kid left with his/her own sword. (Bamboo versions. Not stabby-stabby versions.) 🇨🇦⚔️
One of Reynolds’ followers wasn’t so impressed by the gesture, though, calling the actor out for encouraging young children to watch an R-rated film. Reynolds responded with his own “two cents.”
