Tom Hanks’ son Chester, aka Chet Haze, is a rapper, and he’s sick of the “Forrest Gump” jokes, thank you very much.

It’s not easy to be the gangsta son of America’s nicest actor, if his latest Twitter rant is any indication.

“These nerdy twitter comedians hate it when another white guy comes along who actually has soul,” he tweeted on Monday. “It reminds them of what they’re not.”

He continued to unravel in nine more expletive-filled posts, calling out “clowns” and “jealous nerds” and threatening to beat their a**es.

What, no Vanilla Nice jokes?
