Chet Hanks Is “Emotionally Disturbed”
You’ve obtained to be fairly bizarre if you happen to’ve made even Eric André’s coworkers scratch their heads. In a current Rolling Stone interview — forward of the upcoming sixth season of his namesake parody speak present — the comic revealed the visitor who threw his complete crew for a loop: The “emotionally disturbed” Chet Hanks, who isn’t taking the criticism frivolously.
“He’s…emotionally disturbed,” André recalled of his time on set with Hanks. “He stole a motorbike and rode it round. He nearly knocked a bunch of grips and gaffers off their ladders. It was very harmful. He tried to prank us again, however we edited out all his bullshit! He’s not properly. How did Colin Hanks come out so good and Chet Hanks come out so unhealthy?”
Hanks has been elevating eyebrows and accusations of cultural appropriation ever since he spoke in a Jamaican accent whereas accompanying his father, Tom Hanks, on the 2020 Golden Globes. (To not point out that point he mentioned utilizing the N-word was OK.) The next yr, Hanks launched his questionable hip-hop single “White Boy Summer time,” which landed him a take care of Soulja Boy’s document label. A motive for all of the bizarro, tradition vulture habits? He “didn’t have a powerful male function mannequin” rising up.
“I used to be simply taking part in alongside along with your schtick, dude,” Hanks responded to André in an Instagram story, explaining that he was attempting to match the “bizarre, outlandish” nature of The Eric André Present. “Seems, you’re only a pussy… However it’s what it’s. Some persons are simply straight bitches. Apparently Eric André is one.”
André retaliated on his personal story, albeit with an air of irony: “Every part Chet Hanks simply mentioned about me is a fucking, bold-faced lie. He’s a fucking liar. And I dare him to take a fucking DNA take a look at and show that Tom Hanks is his fucking father!”
We’ll probably see extra of Hanks’ antics when Season 6 of The Eric Andre Present premieres on Grownup Swim Sunday, June 4th at midnight ET/PT. In keeping with a press launch, it’ll be “probably the most high-octane, stone chilly, no holds barred, mind-blowing, emotionally mature late-night present within the historical past of mankind.”
