Hollywood’s most prominent infant who routinely takes to Instagram to share his intellect with the world, Chet Hanks, has made headlines again due to his uninformed remarks. In a climate of heightened racial tensions, Hanks generated a lot of controversies this year by calling for a “white boy summer.” When someone explained the possible connotations of that phrase to him, Hanks dismissed it and said that he was talking about white rappers.
Back when the pandemic was in its early stages, Chet’s parents – Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson, tested positive for the virus. They were clearly drained and traumatised by the experience, as is evident from Wilson’s comments: “I felt extremely achy, uncomfortable, didn’t want to be touched, and then the fever started.” However, Chet insisted that “they’re not even that sick.”
Recently, Hanks proved himself to be an ‘alternative thinker’ by sharing his invaluable insights about the validity of vaccinations during a pandemic. Contrary to expert opinion and medical consensus, Hanks has followed in the footsteps of conspiracy theorists and QAnon loonies by denouncing vaccines.
“I suggest to all my followers, you guys, set an appointment and get the vaccine first thing – PSYCH! Bitch!” Hanks said in the video. “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it! I never had COVID. Y’ain’t sticking me with that motherfucking needle!”
Adding, “If you’re in danger, stay your ass inside. I’m tired of wearing a motherfucking mask… Just like you have the right to be mad at me ’cause I said I’m not going to get the vaccine, I have the right to not get that shit.”
Hanks also explained why he did not need the vaccines: “I wanted to, but my immune system said it’s good. It doesn’t want to be tampered with. It said it’s good, okay? Let’s be real. 99% of you motherfuckers wouldn’t use a shampoo that’s not FDA approved. But you’re willing to get some experimental, government injection. There’s more evidence of UFOs being real than that vaccine being healthy for you.”
