Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson's son Chet Hanks got a lot of attention when he spoke patois at the 2020 Golden Globes.
Chet was accused of cultural appropriation. He recently responded to that charge in a video shared by the Jasmine BRAND.
The rapper, who's now signed to Soulja Boy's SODMG label, said a girl he used to date taught him how to speak the Caribbean dialect and it shouldn't be a problem if he wants to speak it.
"I don't f*ckin' know, dude. If I'm interested in f*ckin' bullfighting, I can fly to Spain and go watch a bullfight," Chet reasoned. "And if I want to go talk to a matador and say, 'Hey bro, can you teach me how to f*ckin' fight the bulls?' and he's like, 'Hell yeah, bro. Here, put this on.' He's stoked that I'm stoked, right? Some asshole out there is gonna say I'm f*cked up because I'm culturally appropriating the matador culture ... But I'm not even mad though because all these haters, they're on the way out, dude."
Would you say what Chet does is cultural appropriation?
