A little backstory

Chet Hanks is one of the sons of the prolific actor Tom Hanks. It seems he’s got his father’s acting genes. He is also a musician too.

The genesis of the feud
Chet's appearance on Eric Andre's Show (The Eric Andre Show) marked the beginning of what would turn out to be a dirty feud.
The Eric Andre Show is not for the faint-hearted
Let's just say not everyone can take Eric’s jokes. More so, he firmly believes that Chet, in his words, “is…emotionally disturbed.”
Surprise, Surprise, Chet saw the interview
Holding nothing back
Chet explained his side of the story on his Instagram story. In his words;
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.

It certainly didn't end there. Chet had a lot more to say
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.
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 wasn't going to let this slide. Of course, he responded
According to Eric;
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.
Eric couldn't help adding some icing on the cake
Chet put out a story of his own
Celebrity feuds are often out-of-the-box because people hardly ever see them coming. Yet, when they start, they are all everyone talks about. We guess that's just the star power in action.
The fascinating thing about most of these feuds is how public they are. One would imagine it would be easier to squash issues in private, but celebrities almost never do that.
