Someone, please take Chet Hanks’ phone away.
The 31-year-old son of Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson went on a wild rant against the vaccine and COVID-19 on Monday, calling the potentially fatal virus “the motherfucking flu”—despite his own parents being hospitalized with the virus last March.
He paid a visit to a Barnes & Noble bookstore, where an employee prompted him to pull his slipping mask up over his nose.
“I’m so sick of this mask shit,” Hanks complained outside the store. He went on to explain that the worker had asked him about his vaccination status and that he lied. Laughing, Hanks said, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. I’ve never had COVID, bitch.”
He then posted a video to his Instagram feed, going on a mock influencer-type spiel about the importance of getting vaccinated.
“Look, I’ve been kind of on the fence about this for a while… but with the amount of people that I know recently that have gotten COVID and with the numbers rising, I think it’s important for me to say [that] I got the vaccine,” he started.
“I think it’s really important that we all do this… we have to look out for each other and get this shit under control guys.
I suggest to all my followers, you guys set an appointment and get the vaccine first thing.”
