Dionne Warwick had absolutely no patience for Chet Hanks' "White boy summer" prediction.

The singer responded to a fan who shared Hanks', son of movie star Tom Hanks, idea summer 2021 is going to be the summer of White boys.

Warwick posted the question:

"What positive piece of knowledge have you learned so far this week?"

A fan posted a clip from Hanks in response with the caption:

"That it's about to be a white boy summer."

At first Warwick was as confused as everyone else and just replied in a since deleted tweet:

"What?"

After some reflection, the Grammy winning singer responded:

"I will be having a Black Woman Summer."
"What foolishness did I just see?"

Her fans and followers offered explanations and affirmations.





Hanks has a history of co-opting Black culture, including speaking in a "blaccent" and has already been roasted from Instagram through Twitter for his latest comments.





The phrase seems to have stemmed from 2019's "Hot Girl Summer" which comes from a song by Megan Thee Stallion.

Warwick's Twitter history makes it clear she does not suffer fools gladly.





Warwick—who has sold over 75 million singles and 25 million albums worldwide —apparently decided to have mercy on Hanks who had been soundly mocked already. She deleted her second response as well.

But if you're looking for validation for your "foolishness," don't cross Dionne Warwick's Twitter path.

Chances are, you won't get what you want.
