Chet Hanks, the son of Hollywood power couple, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson has reportedly gone on an "anti-vaxx" rant according to The Wrap, following an outburst on social media about masks and vaccines.
On Tuesday, Chet posted a video on Instagram where he said in part, “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. I ain’t never had COVID. You ain’t stickin’ me with that motherf—— needle. It’s the motherf—— flu. Get over it, okay? If you’re sick, stay inside. Why we working around y’all? If you’re in danger, stay your ass inside. I’m tired of wearing a motherf—— mask.”
On Wednesday he followed up with a new video, in which he said: “Just like you have the right to be mad at me ‘cause I said I’m not going to get the vaccine, I have the right to not get that s—. I wanted to, but my immune system said it’s good. It doesn’t want to be tampered with. It said it’s good, okay? Let’s be real. 99% of you motherf—— wouldn’t use a shampoo that’s not FDA approved. But you’re willing to get some experimental, government injection. There’s more evidence of UFOs being real than that vaccine being healthy for you.”
According to the media outlet, Chet Hank's posts sparked widespread criticism for declaring he won’t get the COVID-19 vaccine, and after some reflection insisted he had not changed his mind.
In 2019, Chet Hanks and Matthew McConaughey kicked off summer with a vacation in Greece.
McConaughey and Hanks, were spotted on the Greek island of Antiparos in the Cyclades and were joined by the True Detective's family on the beach.
When Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson famously caught Covid-19 during film in Australia in 2020, as reported by Greek City Times, Chet took to his Instagram account posting a video to his 204k followers advising he’d spoken to his parents and said this:
“It’s true my parents got Coronavirus, crazy! They’re both down in Australia right now because my dad was shooting a movie down there but I just got off the phone with them, they both are fine they’re not even that sick, they’re not worried about it they’re not tripping but they’re going through the necessary health precautions obviously. But I don’t think it’s anything to be too worried about, I appreciate everyone’s concern and the well wishes but I think it’s all going to be alright but I appreciate it and just everybody stay safe out there. Much love.”
