Chester Hanks appears to be in a biker gang now. He’s also an actor on Empire. Gone are the gold capped teeth, and mercifully, so are his frequent droppings of the N-Word. The Artist Formerly Known As Chet Haze is returning to his roots as a wealthy white boy and has taken on the motto “SAY LESS” as a driving force in his life. To that end, he recently appeared on The Red Pill Podcast With Van Lathan, to say more about why he previously felt entitled to use the N-Word willy-nilly. Short answer: He was high. Longer answer: He was trolling in a desperate effort to spark his rap career. Longest answer (unspoken): His daddy named him Chester and made him drive to high school in a hand-me-down PT Cruiser. (Note from Michael: PT Kwuzer, you say?)
Back in 2015, Chester used the “lifestyle” defense to explain why he freely dropped the N-Word on Instagram posts and in his music, claiming he was doing it for the culture. Now he realizes that was lame. Chester said (via Page Six):
“I did the ultimate lame thing,” he said. “I did the ultimate cornball thing. And that shit wasn’t cool.”
I wonder if Lucious Lyon (by way of Baby Wipes Howard) had to have a heart-to-heart with him on set to straighten him out, you know, douche to douche? But being a lame cornball wasn’t he primary reason Chester gave.
Asked why he felt comfortable using the slur, he told the host, “Number one, I was on a lot of drugs … I wanted to be, like, down, you know what I mean? I just felt like I wasn’t enough.”
Was he on Ambien? That’s the only drug I can think of that might make you write regrettable things on social media. Sorry Chester, being on street drugs is not a valid excuse. Get a prescription next time! The real truth is there though, he wanted to be “down”. Chester continued:
“Low-key, like subconsciously, looking back on it now I realize I was trolling,” he said. “I thought, like, crazy antics and just wilding the fuck out and doing some crazy shit was going to like spark my career.”
Turns out all that was for naught. I guess the real answer was getting sober enough to have daddy make a couple of phone calls and land a role on Empire. Here’s Chester’s interview (the N-Word discussion is in the third frame).
And if you have any ideas for what Chester should call his motorcycle club, he’s looking for suggestions!
