Chet Haze & Howard Stern Feud — Tom Hanks’ Son Lashes Out At DJ On Twitter

Chet, whose real name is Chester, reinvented himself as rapper Chet Haze while attending Northwestern University in 2011. Chet’s rapper identity has been the source of mockery for many people, including Howard Stern. In fact, over the last four years, Howard often made fun of Chet’s attempt to portray himself as a “gangsta from the hood,” reports RadarOnline.

Chet never responded to Howard’s insults in the past, but that changed after a March 24 interview between Howard and fellow Sirius XM DJ, Rude Jude. During this interview, Howard and Rude discussed Rude’s tense conversation with Chet in Janurary 2015, reports People. The two also laughed at Chet’s tough guy, gangster-rap mannerisms while pointing out that — yes, he grew up in luxury as the son of one of Hollywood’s biggest legends.

This set Chet off, and he decided to break his silence with — how else? — obscenity and threats of violence, unleashing a firestorm of tweets at Howard. Such gems include:

Understandably, Chet may just be venting some frustration from being picked on for four years straight by Howard. However, Chet doesn’t need to be the son of a Hollywood Icon to know that he shouldn’t threaten to beat someone up just because they said some mean things about him.

What do you think about Chet’s tweets at Howard Stern, HollywoodLifers? Did Howard deserve it after making fun of Chet for all those years or did Chet go too far?
