Mbappe scored twice for the newly-crowned Ligue One champions, who surrendered a two-goal lead to draw with the European-chasing Strasbourg.
Marco Verratti scored an own goal in the 75th minute before Anthony Caci scored a 92nd minute equaliser for the hosts.
Mbappe is PSG's leading goalscorer this season with 35 goals, while he's also got 23 assists in 43 games in all competitions.
But many believe the World Cup winner was playing for himself on Friday night, notably ignoring Messi on two occasions.
Towards the end of the first half, Mbappe had the ball down the left and was up against the defender.
But PSG had developed an overload, with Neymar and Messi both arriving outside the box.
Mbappe is one of the most selfish players I’ve seen, why isn’t he passing this to Messi? pic.twitter.com/kVDvS9fbpI— Stav (@stavfps) April 29, 2022
It's common sense to pass to a player in a better position instead of going for the glory and failing horribly— Rishabh (@Rishabh25550529) April 29, 2022
This guy never passes to anyone... https://t.co/hSZrsY8b4d— Kushagra 1970 (@pandeyratna5) April 30, 2022
I told this way before.. I haven't seen most selfish player than Mbappe. https://t.co/3WszhYAlo0— @imcooladi🚜 (@adityarohit25) April 30, 2022
He’s actually been doing this nonsense lately and it’s annoying https://t.co/cnFLwsv48U— 黒人の少年 (@AlameenYerima) April 29, 2022
Messi was free, in the kind of space and position he absolutely thrives in, but Mbappe decided to go alone and was smothered by two defenders.
He ended up on the deck, having wasted a pretty good situation. And it led to plenty of criticism on social media.
There was also a second instance in stoppage time which also caused a stir. Neymar pressed well to win the ball back and Mbappe picked up possession in a dangerous area.

Mbappé through with Messi free:
Minutes after this Strasbourg equalise 3-3
Yes, Mbappé is great, and yes he assisted a couple Messi goals. But the truth is atleast 20 times this season where Messi was free like this, Mbappé didn’t pass.

Instead of giving an easy pass to Messi, Mbappe skied it— Ziad is back in pain (@Ziad_EJ) April 29, 2022
PSG doesn’t deserve Messi pic.twitter.com/y7QUCeTscm
I see no reason why Mbappe ignored Messi but chooses to volleyed the ball over the bar, he already had a great game. He should've just passed that ball to Messi who was in a good position to drive and score , Or give it back to him because Messi that I know is always selfless 😒 pic.twitter.com/rQn3NYhKSn— King Maxim🇦🇷 🥇👑 (@KingMaxim8) April 29, 2022
Messi was again free on the right-hand side but Mbappe took the shot on early and blazed it over the bar.
To make matters worse, this was when PSG were 3-2 up. Minutes later Strasbourg levelled matters to claim a draw.
Messi has supplied four assists for Messi in the league this term but his decision-making was a little suspect in the aforementioned moments.
Mbappe's contract with PSG is up in the summer and the club are still desperately trying to tie him down - even offering a staggering £83 million signing-on bonus.
Real Madrid are waiting in the wings, with Los Blancos legend Roberto Carlos recently telling fans that Mbappe is on his way to the Santiago Bernabeu.
