The Hot Girls do NOT approve.

Chet Hanks is being hit with backlash after proclaiming “White Boy Summer” will soon be approaching.

“I just got this feeling man, that this summer is, it’s about to be a white boy summer,” he deadpanned for his Instagram followers.

“Take it how you want.”

“I’m not talking about Trump, NASCAR type white,” he continued, “I’m talking about, you know, me, [R&B artist] Jon B, [rapper] Jack Harlow type white boy summer.

Let me know if you guys can vibe with that and get ready, ‘cuz I am.”

The phrase is a play on words based on rapper Megan Thee Stallion’s “Hot Girl Summer” song and internet meme, which encourages women to embrace their sexy side during the hottest time of the year.

Chet’s comedic take, however, didn’t sit well with social media, as several followers called him out for the video, as well as for potentially embarrassing parents, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson.

“Chet Hanks is proof that you can do everything right in the world and kids will still embarrass tf outta you,” wrote one observer, with another adding, “Are we sure that Chet Hanks is Tom and Rita’s biological offspring? Something’s just not adding up.”

Chet has previously been accused of cultural appropriation, implementing a faux Jamaican accent last year to the chagrin of many within the Caribbean community.

If you thought that we were done with Chet Hanks' internet shenanigans, think again.

The second-oldest son of Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, known for his controversial comments, is back on Instagram telling us all about his ideas for how summer 2021 will go. 

While many are hesitant to feel optimistic about the summer due to the coronavirus pandemic still raging, Chet thinks it will be "White Boy Summer." Here's everything you need to know about what that means. 

In an Instagram post on Mar.

26.

2021, Chet posted a video with the caption, "It's it bout to be a #WhiteboySummer or am I trippin ???? Tag a REAL vanilla king #Respectfully." The actual content of the video was far more interesting, with Chet clarifying what kind of "white boy summer" he was talking about. 

Chet explained, "Okay guys, look I just wanted to tap in really quick.

I just got this feeling, man, that this summer is about to be a white boy summer, you know? Take it how you want.

I’m not talking about Trump, you know, NASCAR type white.

I’m talking about me, Jon B, Jack Harlow type white boy summer.

Let me know if you guys can vibe with that and get ready, because I am."

For those unfamiliar with the people he's referencing, the first is a reference to the character Jon B from Netflix teen hit Outer Banks.

There was a TikTok trend earlier in 2020 when the series released, with teens dressing up in attire similar to what the characters from the show would wear (think lots of Hawaiian print shirts.).

Jesus that didnt feel great.

Hope you enjoy.

The other person Chet mentions in his video is Jack Harlow, a young rapper who is best known for his hit single "What's Poppin'." Jack has been lauded as a "woke" white man who showcases his exuberant personality on Twitter.

Chet's clarification about Trump and NASCAR seems like he's just trying to encourage a more wholesome version of "boys will be boys," which might not be a bad thing.

Like with most viral content, Twitter had a lot to say about Chet's remarks, which also take their key phrase from the iconic Meg Thee Stallion's "Hot Girl Summer" phrase of 2020.

"Someone tell Chet Hanks we're already several thousand years into a white boy summer," one person quipped, while another said simply, "I physically can not imagine Chet Hanks and Tom Hanks talking to each other."

🤔 I’m scared of Chet Hanks “White Boy Summer”.

WTF does that even mean.

Cause we have endured a white boys winter.

Chet Hanks proves that you can have the most wonderful parents ever & still become an asshole with this bs "White Boy Summer" comment.

Is there actual DNA evidence that he is their biological son? I mean he doesn't even look like Tom Hanks or Rita Wilson.

I don't believe it! pic.twitter.com/HFzz3aEX91

It wouldn't be the first time Chet has said something wild over his Instagram page, but unlike previous declarations, this most recent outburst might have a better outcome.

Co-opting Meg's phrase isn't great, but perhaps more wholesome summer post-pandemic is what we all need in life. 

Maybe Chet, a known Soundcloud rapper, could be teasing new music? After all, Meg's "Hot Girl Summer" also manifested rapper Blackbear's "hot girl bummer," so anything is possible.
