Looks like White Boy Summer is not doing what it was supposed to do, cause Chet Hanks is in need of some money. The son of Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson should not be hurting for money at all. The young star star has some very rich parents and a budding acting career with roles in Empire and Shameless, but it looks like he still needs the extra help. Fans are eager to help and even set up a GoFundMe for him.
Last month Chet kicked off his #whiteboysummer with a series of viral videos promoting his new movement and merch line. The actor and rapper has been doubling down on his love of black women, teasing the launch of a companion movement #blackqueensummer to follow.
“Take it how you want, I’m not talking about Trump, Nascar-type white. I’m talking about me, (rappers) Jon B. Jack Harlow-type white boys, you know what I mean? Let me know if you guys can vibe with that, and get ready,” he added. “‘Cause I am.’”
Shortly after that however, details from an ugly domestic dispute he had earlier in the year went public. It appears that Chet and ex girlfriend Kiana Parker got into an ‘incident’ that resulted in law enforcement being called. Last month TMZ obtained video of Chet Hanks after what was believed to be an attack from Kiana. In the video, Chet can be seen turning the camera towards Kiana where she appears to swipe at him as she holds a pot, with Chet reappearing in the next frame, saying she tried to st*b him. Kiana denies these claims. The incident took place at Hanks’ Sugarland, Texas house on Jan. 8.
The altercation clearly put a dent in Chet’s plans because now he is asking for help. A twitter user that goes by @c0wgirlonline posted screenshots of an interaction with Chet via instagram. In the conversation, Chet asks for $200 for “bills”. The user declined and reminds Chet that his father is Forrest Gump.

Fans amused by the exchange started a GoFundMe for Chet to help him raise $200. It is currently at $5. The fundraiser caption says “Hi. Chet Hanks has informed my friend Lily that he has “bills to pay” and needs $200. I am not sure why he needs this money as his father is a rich celebrity named Tom Hanks that you may know from movies such as Forrest Gump. I am sincerely hoping we can raise $200 for Chet Hanks so he can pay his bills.”
