Chet Hanks Facts

  1. He released the rap song White Boy Summer in 2021, which was a play on Megan Thee Stallion‘s 2019 hit song, Hot Girl Summer. The music video of the song was called out for cultural appropriation as it featured the use of marijuana with the Jamaican flag. Moreover, the song was embraced by white nationalists, including Nick Fuentes, to promote white pride, white privilege and oppose the Black Lives Matter protests.
  2. Chet has referred to himself as the black sheep of his family due to his controversial image and substance abuse issues, which stand in stark contrast to his father’s pristine image as ‘America’s dad’.
  3. In 2015, he was sought after by the British police for damaging a hotel room worth $1800.
  4. Chet made a cameo appearance as Bushnell in the World War II film Greyhound (2020), which starred his dad in the lead role.
  5. In 2020, he received Greek citizenship along with his parents for their support in helping raise awareness for the 2018 Attica wildfires.
