“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,” the 41-year-old actor posted on Instagram along side a collage of pictures with the children. Also Read - 'I Love You Baby'!

“They also make dreams come true for parents, who just want to 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.)” he added.

Reynolds post, however, miffed a user who pointed out “Deadpool” is an “R rated movie and said children watching it is “wrong”.

“Yup. ‘Deadpool’ is Rated R. If my kids went through a fraction of the s**t these kids deal with daily, I think they can watch whatever they like. That’s just my .02 cents,” Reynolds responded to the comment.

The actor will reprise his role in “Deadpool 2”, which is being helmed by David Leitch. The film also features Josh Brolin as Cable along with Morena Baccarin, TJ Miller, Leslie Uggams, Brianna Hildebrand, Stefan Kapicic and Zazie Beetz.
