Is Tom Hanks’s son Chet Haze creeping on girls on Reddit?
This might be a thing that is happening right now! Reddit! It’s a place for celebrities to come and answer questions from you or me! It’s also a place where creepy dudes come to look at women who may or may not be underage! And now it’s a place for both things!
Do you know about Chet Haze? He’s Tom Hanks’s son. His real name is Chester Hanks and he wants to be a rapper. He goes to Northwestern University, he Tweets, and he’s totally hilarious in a completely unintentional way. You may have heard Howard Stern totally demolishing him on the radio, but if you need to hear the Haze for yourself, here’s a sample track.
Back to Reddit. Hanks’s youngest son Truman started a Reddit AMA yesterday. It wasn’t terribly interesting because Truman Hanks hasn’t really done anything. He’s in high school. But then somebody asked him about Chet, and fireworks.
Haha I love Chet! He was a lot bigger than me when we were younger, so when I annoyed him (which was a lot) he would rough me up (a lot). But now that we are older, we are very close, like I am with Colin and Elizabeth.
As for his music, I like some of it and other not so much. Hollywood is good. I’ve never been one for hip-hop, except for some exceptions in a few songs.
And then a Reddit user by the name of “chethaze” responded:
Love you bro
Since Reddit lets you browse any user’s post history, Redditor ThaBomb noted:
Holy moly, this is actually Chet. I just went through his post history, and about 80% are posts on gonewild trying to pick up girls, 15% are cool stories from being around celebrities so often, and 5% are pics of his bongs posted in /r/trees.
Being a Redditor would actually give Haze a lot more cred on the Internet, but he quickly denied it.
Someone is pretending to be me on a website called askreddit which I have never heard of. Sorry to disappoint y’all but that’s not me.

The curious thing is that, after that, the Chet Haze account made a post asking “how do I hide my comment history” and then deleted the account. If this was a fake troll account, as Haze claims on Twitter, why would it disappear the instant it was discovered? That’s exactly the opposite of what trolls do. They want to bask in the attention. Especially since the Haze account had been active for months.
Gawker has a screengrab of all of the maybe-real Haze’s comments in the r/gonewild subreddit, which is, as you might expect, ladies acting naughty. He also posted about encounters with Nicolas Cage, not jacking off with an apple and going to Africa, which “really makes you think.”
So what do you think? Was that the real Chet Haze?
