How did the comic turn into embroiled in such an Instagram back-and-forth with Chet, son of Tom Hanks and famous butcherer of patois? Effectively, it began with an interview Eric gave to Rolling Stone earlier this week the place he described what Chet was like on the set of Season 6 of The Eric André Present.
After describing Lil Nas X because the “supreme visitor” for the prank present, Eric moved his consideration to Chet. “Chet Hanks, alternatively, was a troublesome cookie. He broke our crew. It felt like Rust. He broke us down,” Eric stated, evoking the set the place Alec Baldwin shot and killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins in 2021.
“He’s…emotionally disturbed. He stole a motorbike and rode it round. He virtually 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 effectively. How did Colin Hanks come out so good and Chet Hanks come out so unhealthy?” Eric continued.
Effectively, Chet noticed these quotes and didn’t take too kindly to them. In a now-expired sequence of Instagram tales, he stated, “I [saw the show was] on some actually bizarre, outlandish troll shit, so I am like, ‘Alright, I will match that power’…pondering that he would get it.”
He continued, “At one level, he has a dude come and bounce a mud bike on the stage. Effectively, he should not have identified that I trip grime bikes as a result of I picked that shit up and begin driving it across the set. Everyone’s like, ‘No, no, no, don’t try this. You would get harm!’ I’m like, ‘Chill I simply popped somewhat wheelie.’ I put the bike down.”
Chet continued, “After I got here out and sat down, he appeared genuinely nervous, simply being round me. There’s a variety of fucking weirdos in Hollywood, however I did not suppose you had been one in all them, I assumed you had been humorous and funky, however seems you are only a pussy.”
However it did not cease there, people! Eric then took to his personal Instagram story and stated, “Every thing Chet Hanks simply stated about me is a fucking, bold-faced lie. He’s a fucking liar. I dare him to take a fucking DNA take a look at and show that Tom Hanks is his fucking father.”
In addition to…this hashtag:
Was that the tip of it? Nonetheless no! Chet reposted the video on his story with the crying-laughing emoji and added, “This is identical dude that stated I used to be ’emotionally disturbed.'”
Given this back-and-forth, we presumably will stay on this beef for perpetuity (or till Season 6 of The Eric André Present has sufficient promo for when it debuts in June).
