If there’s one thing Chet Hanks has mastered, it’s the art of causing a stir.
On Sunday, the 30-year-old treated his 483,000 Instagram followers to a clip from the video that showed him bouncing his head on a woman’s bottom.
The video for the pro-partying anthem sees Hanks rap the line: “Hot boy / white boy summer / got your favorite Instagram b*tch / DMing her your number.”
“SHOULD I DROP THE VIDEO ON TUESDAY OR WAIT TIL FRIDAY??? #WBS MOST DEFINITELY GOING UP #SHEEESH,” the caption reads. “LETS SEE IF YALL REALLY READY TAG AND REPOST YOUR MOM AND HER FRIENDS IF YOU REALLY BOUT IT CHURCHHHHHHHH.”
Last month, Hanks – who raps under the moniker Chet Haze – declared that 2021 was going to be a “White Boy Summer” – a play on Megan Thee Stallion’s 2019 hit “Hot Girl Summer.”
The rapper and actor later unveiled a range of black and white merchandise emblazoned with the phrase, printed in a Gothic-style font reminiscent of ones used by white nationalists.
His choice of font triggered accusations of racism from online commentators.
Responding to the backlash in a video posted on Instagram, he said: “Take it how you want, I’m not talking about Trump, Nascar-type white. 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 another video in his Instagram stories, Hanks told followers that “White Boy Summer” also means no “ill-will or prejudice against anybody from a different background, race or walk of life than you.”
In November 2019, Hanks – who came under fire for defending the use of the n-word and previously went viral for speaking in the Jamaican dialect at the 2020 Golden Globes – admitted that having Tom Hanks as his dad was both a blessing and a curse.
“If I invented a cure for cancer tomorrow, in the article it would say, ‘Tom Hanks’ Son Invents the Cure for Cancer,’ you know what I mean? It’s inevitable,” he told the Too Fab website
