Chester Hanks, the son of Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks and actress Rita Wilson, uses the N-word freely and is proud of it, he says in an Instagram video.
The younger Hanks, a rapper who goes by the stage name Chet Haze is calling in his Hood Pass after getting dragged for using the n-word on Instagram yesterday.
Rather than send out a carefully worded apology (written by his dad Tom Hanks’s publicist) to those he offended with his fast and loose use of the loaded term yesterday, Chet Haze is doubling down and fighting for his right to say the n-word.
Evoking the Constitution, white privilege and the spirit of hip hop (which “isn’t about race,” according to him), Chet posted a lengthy defense of his language to social media.
“If I say the word n***a I say it amongst people I love and who love me. If I say “f**k yall hatin a** n****z” it’s because that’s really how I felt at the time,” he began.

Twitter, on the other hand, has plenty to say about Chet Haze using the N-Word.
