The grown child of Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson went on an anti-vaccine rampage despite his famous parents being hospitalized with the virus last year.
Chet Hanks, 31, was asked to pull up his face mask in a Barnes & Noble store on Monday, which prompted him to complain about the policy. “I’m so sick of this mask shit,” he whined. Going on to detail that he had lied to an employee about his vaccination status. “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. I’ve never had COVID, b***h,” he laughed.
Later that day he posted what started off as a public service announcement about the vaccine, but quickly morphed into a video mocking mask usage and vaccine mandates.
“Look, I’ve been kind of on the fence about this for a while… but with the amount of people that I know recently that have gotten COVID and with the numbers rising, I think it’s important for me to say [that] I got the vaccine,” he began.
“I think it’s really important that we all do this… we have to look out for each other and get this shit under control guys,” he said seriously. “I suggest to all my followers, you guys set an appointment and get the vaccine first thing.”
The “White Boy Summer” rapper then screams “Sike!” and flips the script. “B***h, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. I never had COVID. You ain’t sticking me with that motherf***ing needle.
“It’s the motherf***ing flu,” he continued. “Get over it. OK? If you’re sick, stay inside. Why are we working around y’all? If you’re in danger, stay your a** inside. I’m tired of wearing a motherf***ing mask.”
In a follow-up video, he told viewers, “Just like you have the right to be mad at me because I said I’m not getting the vaccine, I have the right to not get that s**t.”
“I wanted to, but my immune system said it’s good,” he joked. “It’s good, It doesn’t need to be tampered with.”
He went on to note that most people wouldn’t use hair care products that weren’t fully approved for use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
“Let’s be real, 99% of you motherf***ers wouldn’t use a shampoo that’s not FDA approved, but you’re willing to get some experimental government injection,” he concluded. “There’s more evidence for UFOs being real, than that vaccine being healthy for you.”
Both of Hanks’ famous parents have yet to comment about his videos.
