The left’s attempt to cancel Chet Hanks over “cultural appropriation” isn’t going so well.
Chet Hanks, Tom Hanks’ son, finds himself tangled in controversy yet again.
Just last year, he landed himself in hot water after declaring that it would be a “white boy summer,” on his upcoming rap song. Woke media personalities immediately accused him of racism. The rap song now has over a million views on YouTube.
Chet Hank’s ‘White Boy Summer’ speeches have often drawn flak from political netizens.
The rapper drew the ire of the internet when he spoke in Patois at the 2020 Golden Globes and for using the Jamaican flag in the song, Hanks was accused of cultural appropriation.
However, during a recent interview, Hanks politely informs leftists to “go kick rocks” when it comes to accusations of cultural appropriations.
Chet Hanks sat down with comedian and writer Ziwerekoru “Ziwe” Fumudoh for an interview, who asked a loaded question, she asked Hanks if he thinks he should “apologize to any marginalized communities” for cultural appropriation, the son of infamous Hollywood actor Tom Hanks answered ‘no’ but he has a very special message to social justice warriors accusing him of “cultural appropriation”.
Podcaster Ziwe asks, “Are there any marginalized communities you want to apologize to. I don’t know, maybe the Patois community?”
Hanks fervently shakes his head and then responds, “Nah.”
“Nah.. I don’t feel like I’ve truly done anything offensive,” The celebrity son replied.
Ziwe asks Hanks if social justice warriors should go kick rocks, “You don’t see it as cultural appropriation, you see it as a celebration of culture.. and then its like social justice warriors can go kick rocks”
Hanks responds, “Yeah….”
The Nigerian comedian pressed, “No comment then?”
Hanks answers back, “No, I mean, I 100% agree. Social justice warriors can go kick rocks”

And with that sentiment, many Twitter users agreed with Hanks.

would love to see a poll of Jamaicans living on the island vs. American progressives re: Chet Hanks. My guess is that the latter are way more offended than the former. https://t.co/d94IZx1I3Y

Don’t even know the back story. Don’t care. Chet Hanks (yeah, Tom’s son) answers how you *should* answer when SJWs demand a mea culpa for breaking the new rules they made up. https://t.co/pxDQMP86Vp
