Earlier this week, Tyrese had some questionable thoughts about promiscuous women who are able to get and keep a man.
(LONG RANT.) …nigga, at what point do you say, "hm. maybe I should shut the fuck up and mind my damn business?" cuz this nigga stay giving unwanted opinions and advice for women. Nigga SHUT UP. tyrese is one of them fake woke hotep niggas that love to preach from a bigoted perspective. every time I hear about tyrese he always talking down on women with plastic surgery and women who are promiscuous. but I NEVER hear him say a damn thing to men about it. which is stupid bc these "promiscuous" women aren't sleeping with themselves. he never calls out the men who are talking part in it because he, like many others, don't hold men to the same standards as women when it comes to sex. bottom line tho, dude is a straight up misogynist but we knew that. what I really wanna talk about is how black spaces like BET somewhat abandon their responsibility to uplift and liberate black women by giving dummies like tyrese a platform to spew misogyny. from jump, he's already placed women's value by our sexual activities. I guess a woman's love for herself is determined by how long she's willing to go without sex ??. fuck outta here. black women are black people period. we are humans that are deserving of respect ("hoes" or not) and we deserve better than the "lectures" of fucking tyrese. BET actually filiming and posting this shit is ugly. most of your audience is black women. giving an amplified platform to misogyny with no counter voice is irresponsible. reminds me of why I stopped watching their channel in the first place. I bet they'll be promoting #BlackGirlsRock within the next couple of months so my question is do you love and care about all black women? or just the ones who choose to hold out on a sex life for a man like your buddy tyrese does?? @bet
After a bunch of backlash, the musician has finally apologized.
In an IG post, he admits he misspoke when he accused loose women of having low standards. Peep his apology:
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…
