View this photo on Instagram Chet Hanks / Via instagram.com Yup. This week, the 30-year-old found himself defending his bizarre Jamaican accent after joining Clubhouse*. Axelle / FilmMagic *Clubhouse is a relatively new audio app that is currently invite only and allows members to join chatrooms and converse with one another. Users on the app accused Chet of performing "verbal Blackface": Pip Pip Cheerio @mikes_yk Someone just told Chet Hanks that he commits verbal blackface looooool 02:13 AM - 03 Dec 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite Chet reportedly compared his use of a Jamaican accent to using an English accent after watching "a bunch of English gangster movies," which did not go over well: alexis. @_AlexisBreanneS chet started doing a british accent and everyone yelled “the english were not oppressed!!” i am crying 😭😭😭 03:18 AM - 03 Dec 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite Some users felt he was mocking the accent instead of showing true appreciation for patois: Cory Alexander 🇬🇧🇯🇲 @cozbenson If Chet wants to talk patois then come through talk it. But that’s not what this is about. I speak a little Spanish, and want to become fluent but I’m not going to put on Spanish accent in front of people for jokes. Whether *I* mean it as a joke or not is not important. 04:04 AM - 03 Dec 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite Others found it odd that he didn't use his Jamaican accent while defending his right to use it: binz, baby. @__sunflxwer not Chet Hanks speaking in his normal white man voice defending his right to speak in a Jamaican accent and Jamaican slang..... 02:18 AM - 03 Dec 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite This user felt it was "about time" he got called out for it: your fine rich wife @PrincessShimmy Not Chet Hanks on Clubhouse defending why he needs to keep talking in a Jamaican accent and people dragging him...it’s about time 01:52 AM - 03 Dec 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite Of course, there were plenty of memes...

I would like to know this, also. In the end, Chet apparently conceded that he wouldn't use Jamaican patois going forward: Guanabana Mama 🇩🇲 @HeyShimmy At 9:14 PM CST Chet Hanks says he has no intention to continue using the Jamaican accent he's been appropriating. Shoutout to Clubhouse. Revisit this later. 03:16 AM - 03 Dec 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite Others weren't quite convinced: vic @victoriasanusi Basically Chet said he will no longer do patois but a new accent is being downloaded 03:18 AM - 03 Dec 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite I guess we won't know until his next Instagram video. Or Clubhouse visit ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
