Tom Hanks' youngest son, rapper and actor Chet Hanks, has been roundly slagged off for his latest song, White Boy Summer, and in particular the accompanying video which makes the frat boys of noughties rap rock look like Westlife.

Warning: song contains graphic language
30-year-old Chet or Chester, to give him his full name, is the son of Tom and Rita Wilson, and half-brother to Colin and brother to Truman and is now styling himself Chet Hanx, perhaps in an effort to become the black sheep of the near saintly Hollywood clan.
Chet has starred in the US version of Shameless, and also appeared in Empire, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Your Honor and has already released tracks under the name Chet Haze.
In the video for White Boy Summer, the wannabe bad boy of the Hanks family can be seen wrapping himself in a Jamaican flag and pouring bottles of champagne on scantily-clad models, while delivering a rap that would make Fred Durst cringe.
Naturally, social media is having fun with young Mr. Hanx's latest foray into rap.
