In the clip, Hanks can be heard defending his position in a ‘room’ titled ‘All Love’.
One person challenged him, saying: "When you’re in an environment where there are no Jamaicans, no people that understand or are sympathetic to the Caribbean or Jamaicans at all, are you going to walk into a room of people and just use it?’
“Guys, it’s really as simple as this,” Hanks responded. “If I get on a binge and I watch a bunch of English gangster movies, and I go around... ordering a coffee at Starbucks and I’m with my friend and I go, ‘Give me a latte, guvna.’ I’m not s***ing on these English people.”
“English people were not oppressed,” someone can be heard responding.
“Not Chet Hanks speaking in his normal white man voice defending his right to speak in a Jamaican accent and Jamaican slang…” another person commented.
It’s beyond unfortunate that Chet refuses to consider his privilege, especially when his position has been challenged so many times:
“It’s people like Chet Hanks taking up space in Jamaican culture then having the audacity to say ‘it’s from a place of love’ so therefore it’s valid when challenged by actual Jamaicans,” as @iamntyrell put it. “Get the hell out of here”.
