CONTROVERSIES AND RUMORS
In 2013, Turman took himself to Reddit and did an AMA. He posted on the website “I am the youngest child of Tom Hanks. Ask me anything!”. He engaged a lot of audiences and got a lot of interesting questions. A question came up to him as to describe the best moment he spent with his father. He couldn’t choose a specific moment as he is too close to his father and has a lot of unforgettable moments with him.
Another question came up as how was Chester as a brother. Truman replied that they share a great bond. However, he used to get beaten by Chester when they were young. But that’s just how kids behave. All of a sudden, Chester entered the conversation on Reddit commenting “Love you, brother”. It turns out that it was not Chester. It was a fake account by his name. He verified the situation with a tweet. The account which claimed to be Chester was then banned by the website forever. This AMA was a pleasant experience for the audiences who were involved and who observed the conversation. However, it introduced him to the general public and made a positive mark of his.
Apart from Reddit, Truman Theodore Hanks has an account on Instagram as well. The account is completely private and has only 500-600 followers. But there is no authentication or confirmation from Truman himself whether it is his account or is some kind of fake.
