Tyrese is apologizing after his latest remarks got women everywhere furious, really fast!
Yes, singer and star of “The Fast & The Furious” franchise, Tyrese Gibson made headlines this past week when he made some disparaging remarks about “promiscuous” women. During a recent LIVE interview with BET, the R&B crooner decided to give a few words of advice for his female fans dealing with relationship woes and hoping to find love. However, Gibson’s uplifting speech quickly turned into a tumultuous pitfall for the ‘Sweet lady’ singer.
I’m gonna tell you all right now, and this might be harsh. Sluts, skeezers, hoes, tramps and overly aggressive promiscuous women, they are never without a man because they don’t have no standards. They ready to have sex with any and everything that want to have sex with them. But when you are single, and you actually love yourself, you know your value and your self worth you hold out until God sends you whats yours […] sometimes they be talking mess to women that are single but I have a respect for them because if you’re single and you might say, “I’ve been single for a couple years,” what ever the case may be, you actually holding out because you have your value. You have women that are active out in these streets, they going to lunches and dinners every night. Private planes, mega yachts, it’s cracking. They’re never without. However, it comes with a cost, you gonna put a lot of miles on yourself down there, come on.”
Well, shortly after the interview, Tyrese was collectively dragged by the entire internet and women everywhere. Many even branded the 38 year actor as a “misogynist” and down right “out-of-line” for attempting to tell women what to do with their bodies and labeling them as “sluts” and other sexist slang terms for being sexually active.
Gibson quickly took to social media to right his wrongs and apologize for for his ill-worded statements. In part, he writes:
My intentions were there but my delivery fucking horrible…. And clearly all the way off…. And for that I sincerely apologize to all of the ladies […] I’ve learned a lot through this well deserved internet dragging…… This is about a man owning up to his actions, taking responsibility, recognizing how to do better, and actually doing better. Ladies you deserve better…

My mother taught me better than this….. lesson learned in life you will learn that It's not always "what" you say, it's the "how" we choose to say it. For the record I'm far from a misogynist, a male chauvinist or flat out mean….. My intentions were there but my delivery fucking horrible…. And clearly all the way off…. And for that I sincerely apologize to all of the ladies… Even after this apology…. Some may likely decide to NOT forgive me…. Time and consistency heals all wounds…. Although I've been consistently for years speaking on these topics and some of the same words in my message, I have never experienced what I am experiencing right now. – I've been getting dragged and feel the heat from my poor choice of words and approach to my messages, trust me….. Please accept this as my sincere apology for my poor choice of words – Shit gets real when it goes from a social media dragging to my own wife giving me the side eye and coming at me, even she's not happy with the way I've conducted myself…. it's crazy how non-public figures can say and do some really dumb shit and it will stay amongst your family and friends or local in your hood…. When you have been an entertainer for 15+ years the whole WORLD is literally watching you grow up & learn, bump your head, make mistakes and evolve as the world watches…. This is a real lesson learned… This is not just a regular IG post for me. I want to truly say that I'm sorry, I'm not APOLOGIZING in an effort to be politically correct, I apologize as a man first for the things that I've recently said about choices women have the right to make, for the terms that I've used and the way I've come across. I was raised to think and feel certain ways, and I'm learning new things that combat those messages. I am not perfect or all knowing, nor am I the one to claim to be. I've learned things through experience which I share, and through these last couple of weeks, I've learned a lot through this well deserved internet dragging…… This is about a man owning up to his actions, taking responsibility, recognizing how to do better, and actually doing better. Ladies you deserve better…
Hmmm…interesting that he didn’t see any issue with his comments until he fell out of public favor…
Regardless, we’re glad he’s seen the error of his ways and rightfully clarified his statements. Afterall, he did say some slightly positive things but the whole idea of women not finding the right man because they are sexually “active in these streets” is absurd.
Just because a woman is celibate, it doesn’t guarantee that she’ll find Mr. Right and just because a woman is having sex, whether it be with one man or a dozen, it doesn’t mean that she doesn’t value or “love herself.”–And it’s definitely no one’s place to call her out of her name for it. Not to mention, the double standard of him only pinpointing women and not men was nothing sort of disappointing.
We appreciate the puzzling effort Ty but as far as taking any more of your advice…
