Chet Hanks, who also goes by the Chet Haze, is an actor and musician who’s in the duo FTRZ with Drew Arthur. He was at the Golden Globes to watch his dad, Tom Hanks, receive the Cecil B. DeMille award.
In the video, Hanks announces himself at the Golden Globes and urges people to “chune in” to the awards show.
Hanks also included a message that was clearly culturally appropriated from Jamaican: “BIG UP FIMI WHOL FAMILY SOON COM AT DI AWARDS NA SEEN. CHUNE IN.”
He continued his moronic behavior Monday, speaking in more Jamaican Patois after leaving a juice bar.
What’s even more yikes is that Chet Hanks was accused of this in 2015. At the time, Billboard wrote that Hanks often used the N word on his Instagram.
In the video, it looked like he was trying to use it to explain his point, but you just don’t use that word. He has no excuse.
“Because the history is still so fresh in our country. But hip-hop isn’t about race — it’s about the culture you identify with. Can’t no one tell me what I can’t say,” Chet Hanks says in the video.
In 2018, Hanks said on a podcast that he was using a lot of drugs during that phase of his life. Hanks also said he thought he could use the whole thing to boost his career and admitted that it was the wrong way to go about things.
Tom: “OK, Chet, you can come with us to the Globes as long as you behave yourself. This is an important night for—“

Hanks’ thank-you up on the Globes stage brought some much-needed authenticity to an event that’s often based around free swag and hot gossip.
Hanks explained what it takes to get a movie made. Tom would know — he’s been working in Hollywood for decades.
“A movie is made shot by shot. At that moment, what is required is that everybody does their job to perfection. They have to hit a mark and they have to go there. Sometimes, the movie rests on the makeup artist who puts on Stellan Skarsgard’s eyebrows [in Chernobyl].
Sometimes, it’s the focus puller, and if he isn’t sharp, you don’t have it and it shows up and you have to do it all over again…..The alchemy of a successful film project is when the cast and crew put it all together, have faith in what the process is and go there.”

People saw the irony of the situation, since Tom Hanks is a beloved actor who just played hometown hero Fred Rogers in the biopic Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.
“Imagine living an intentionally positive and great, giving life and you end up with Chet Hanks as your son,” said @DavidDTSS.
