Poor Chet Haze.
First he declared his love for the n-word and now he’s losing friends over the racial epithet. Haze, who is Tom Hanks’s son, sees it as his generational right to throw out the word because he hangs around Black people and thinks he can rap.
One of his Black friends doesn’t feel him on this. Fellow aspiring rapper Scrilla King recently ended his six-year friendship with Haze. "It's disrespectful. He thinks it's a joke,” King told TMZ of his former homie using the word.
"He wakes up thinking he can be Black today and know what we go through,” King continued. “He doesn’t. I wake up Black every day; he does not."
King wants Haze to apologize, but that’s not on the agenda right now because he of course has “music” to promote. "White Chocolate" has been trying to capitalize off the spotlight these last few days, although he did delete his Instagram account, and it’s doubtful that he’s gaining any actual fans.
