Chet Hanks, Whose Parents Contracted COVID-19, Doubles Down on Anti-Vax Stance
The latest barrage of hot takes from Chet Hanks in an effort to become relevant has moved from stupid to dangerous, after the son of Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson doubled down on his anti-vax stance yesterday (August 11) on Instagram.

The fake Jamaican mastermind behind "White Boy Summer" first went on a tirade against COVID vaccines earlier this week, and in response to the inevitable backlash, the younger Hanks has now responded in another Instagram video.

"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 shit," he says in the clip.

"I wanted to, but my immune system said it's good," Hanks continued. "It doesn't want to be tampered with. It said it's good, okay? Let's be real: 99 percent of you motherfuckers 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."

You would think that after watching both of his parents become hospitalized over one year ago from contracting the virus that Hanks would have a slightly more nuanced opinion about keeping himself and his family safe — but sadly, that is not the case.

If you or someone you know is still concerned about the safety of COVID vaccines, take note of what the experts have to say [via canada.ca]:

"Only vaccines that are proven to be safe, effective and of high quality are authorized for use in Canada. The COVID-19 vaccines have been rigorously tested during their development and then carefully reviewed by Health Canada. The vaccines can't give you COVID-19 because they don't contain the virus that causes it. The vaccines also can't change your DNA."
