OH GOD WHY?! Why won’t Tom Hanks‘ son Chet just shut the hell up already? Why hasn’t Tom told him to? Why hasn’t Rita Wilson told him to? Why hasn’t Chet told HIMSELF to? WHY IS CHET STILL TALKING? This is, I’m pretty sure, the question still on everyone’s mind given the controversy surrounding Chet’s incessant insistence that the word “nigga” is his to use and anyone who disagrees is a hater or racist (despite the fact that many of the people who disagree are indeed black). It’s hip hop culture, man! What do YOU know!
After that whole thing, Chet decided to get wild and destroy is London hotel room after causing over £1,200 worth of damage. Cops had to be called and they want to talk to Chet, who dipped out before they could get to him. So once Chet got back to LA, TMZ caught up with him and wanted to know what his problem is and whether or not his parents love him enough to smack some sense into his stupid ass. The short answer? Eh…
“My parents are just like making sure I’m good, they don’t really tell me what to do anymore because I’m grown. They just be making sure I’m happy and safe, that’s all.”
“My parents, they be like telling me to stay off social media period. Even before this happened, they’d be like ‘Don’t be on Instagram so much’ but like they’re the old generation, they don’t get it. We’re the new generation, we do things differently now. You’re either gonna get it, or you’re not gonna get it.”
Oh, and as for whether or not he’s learned anything about his choice of words, that’s a negatory:
“I do have black friends that use it with me and I use it with them.”
