Late Sunday night Chet Hanks (FKA Chet Haze) AKA the son of Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson dropped a clip from the video for his controversial new ‘White Boy Summer’ brand.

Chet teased the video on Instagram, writing to fans:

“SHOULD I DROP THE VIDEO ON TUESDAY OR WAIT TIL FRIDAY🤔❓❓❓ #WBS MOST DEFINITELY GOING UP 🤷🏼‍♂️🤣☀️🏝👀🌎 #SHEEESH LETS SEE IF YALL REALLY READY 🥰🥰🥰😂😂😂 TAG AND REPOST YOUR MOM AND HER FRIENDS IF YOU REALLY BOUT IT ‼️‼️CHURCHHHHHHHH ⛪️⛪️⛪️⛪️”

Immediately, the stars comment section was flooded with backlash over the controversial butt bouncing clip. Hanks responded to the chatter telling concerned spectators to “Take it how you want.”

“I’m not talking about Trump, Nascar-type white, ” he continued. “I’m talking about me, (rappers) Jon B. Jack Harlow-type white boys, you know what I mean? Let me know if you guys can vibe with that and get ready. ‘Cause I am.'”

In the video, which was shot in Venice, California, the 30-year-old “actor”/ “rapper,” literally bounces his face against a girl’s cakes. So respectful right?

Keep in mind, all of this is on the heels of Hanks landing in the news amid claims of domestic violence by ex-girlfriend Kiana Parker. As if the cringe-worthy patois wasn’t already bad enough! More than a few people have pointed out to Chet that ‘White Boy Summer’ (a play on last year’s ‘Hot Girl Summer’ trend) is extremely problematic, considering amid a current social climate where there has been a rise in hate groups like the Proud Boys. It’s kinda crazy how Chet tries to position himself as an ally, but if he truly understood white privilege you would think he’d have backed away from the White Boy Summer business immediately.

Chet also posted a video over the weekend slow grinding on Amber Diamond. He looks a little inebriated to us, what do you think? The #BQS stands for Black Queen Summer, for which he’s also releasing related merch.

Apparently, Chet is feeling particularly empowered because Lil B recently endorsed his message.
