Chet Hanks Hits Back After Eric André Calls Him ‘Emotionally Disturbed’
Chet Hanks is hitting back at Eric André.
In a new interview, the 39-year-old comedian recalled having the 32-year-old actor/rapper – who is the son of Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson – on his Adult Swim series, The Eric André Show, where he alleged that Chet engaged in some “dangerous” behavior on set.
“He broke us down. He is…emotionally disturbed,” Eric said of Chet. “He stole a motorcycle and rode it around. He almost knocked a bunch of grips and gaffers off their ladders. It was very dangerous.”
After Eric‘s comment went viral, Chet took to social media to slam him.
“Had no idea you were such a p–s,” Chet wrote along with a black screen on his Instagram Story while tagging Eric.
He then followed up with a video sharing his side of the story.
“So Eric André invites me onto his show. I had never seen it before, so I started watching episodes,” Chet recalled. “I see it’s on some weird outlandish troll s–t, so I’m like, ‘Alright, cool, I’ll match that energy.”
He continued, “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 s–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,” Chet added. “Now he wants to come out and talk s–t about me? You must’ve just not liked the fact that I outshined you on your own f–king show.”
Chet concluded, “There’s a lot of f–king 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—y.”
The following day, Eric responded to Chet‘s comment on his Instagram Story.
“Guys, everything Chet said about me is a f–king boldface lie,” Eric started. “F–king liar. And I dare him to take a f–king DNA test to prove that Tom Hanks is his f–king father.”
Chet reposted Eric‘s video on his Story, while writing, “This is the same dude that said that I was ‘emotionally disturbed.’”
Season six of The Eric André Show is set to premiere on Adult Swim on June 4.
Also in the interview, Eric talked about his relationship with Emily Ratajkowski.
