Eric Andre and Chet Hanks have beef, and they are airing it on social media. The two ridiculous quasi celebrities have been going back and forth making videos and calling each other names and, you know, other crazy people stuff.
Ok, some backstory. Chet Hanks is the son of Tom Hanks, not to be confused with Colin Hanks. No, Chet took a different path…
The beef all started when Chet went on Comedian Eric Andre’s show, The Eric Andre Show.
Erica Andre is know for his “out there” comedy and his show is mean most to troll its guests.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Andre said Chet was one of the worst he’s had in the history of the show. “Chet Hanks was a tough cookie. He broke our crew. It felt like Rust. He broke us down.”
Eric continued, “He is…emotionally disturbed. He stole a motorcycle and rode it around. He almost knocked a bunch of grips and gaffers off their ladders. It was very dangerous. He tried to prank us back, but we edited out all his bullshit! He’s not well. How did Colin Hanks come out so good and Chet Hanks come out so bad?”
Guess who saw the interview?
Chet took to Instagram to post a series of (now expired) stories explaining his side of the story. “I saw the show was on some really weird, outlandish troll sh*t, so I’m like, ‘Alright, I’ll match that energy’…thinking that he would get it.”
“At one point, he has a dude come and jump a dirt bike on the stage. Well, he must not have known that I ride dirt bikes because I picked that sh*t up and start riding it around the set. Everybody’s like, ‘No, no, no, don’t do that. You could get hurt!’ I’m like, ‘Chill I just popped a little wheelie.’ I put the bike down.”
He added, “Now he wants to come out and talk sh*t about me? You must’ve just not liked the fact that I outshined you on your own f*cking show.”
Finally he concluded, “When I came out and sat down, he seemed genuinely nervous, just being around me. There’s a lot of f*cking weirdos in Hollywood, but I didn’t think you were one of them, I thought you were funny and cool, but turns out you’re just a p*ssy.”
Eric Andre, of course, responded in a very Eric Andre way. He said, “Everything Chet Hanks just said about me is a f*cking, bold-faced lie. He’s a f*cking liar. I dare him to take a f*cking DNA test and prove that Tom Hanks is his f*cking father.”
With this cherry on top.
Chet responded with a story of his own, saying, “This is the same dude that said I was ’emotionally disturbed.'”
