Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, his parents, both tested positive for COVID-19.
Chet Hanks has apparently tasked himself with joining the unvaccinated of the U.S.
“Sike, bitch! If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. I ain’t never had COVID. You ain’t stickin’ me with that motherfuckin’ needle. It’s the motherfuckin’ flu. Get over it, okay? If you’re sick, stay inside. Why we working around y’all? If you’re in danger, stay your ass inside. I’m tired of wearing a motherfuckin’ mask.”
Chet said the vaccine “should be a choice.”

The actual plot involves people turning into zombies after receiving a genetically re-engineered measles virus that was meant to cure cancer.
'I Am Legend' screenwriter and executive producer Akiva Goldsman issued a response to people who have used the plot of the 2007 film he co-wrote to fuel baseless conspiracy theories that the COVID-19 vaccine will eventually turn you into a zombie.
"Oh. My. God. It’s a movie. I made that up. It’s. Not. Real,” Goldsman replied on Twitter.
