If you thought Tom Hanks looked not-thrilled with parts of Ricky Gervais’ Golden Globes monologue, you should see his reaction to this CBD hoax.
A CBD company called CannaPro CBD posted a photo of Hanks. It had an alleged quote from Hanks advocating for the CBD company. Hanks hopped onto Instagram on Tuesday. He shared the CBD ad and assured it was an Internet hoax.
“The advances Dr. Oz has made in the CBD industry are remarkable,” the falsified Hanks quote reads. “I wouldn’t believe it if I hadn’t had the chance to try it out for myself. After using CannaPro CBD for two weeks I was already feeling like a new me.”
“This is false and an intentional hoax,” Hanks assured. “I’ve never said this and would never make such an endorsement. Come on, man! Hanx!”
There were a number of amusing responses in the comments section. One that stands out is: “As if Tom Hanks needs to ‘feel like a new him. HE’S TOM HANKS!”
