Tyrese Isn’t Apologizing for Criticizing ‘Fat and Nasty’ People

Tyrese is catching a lot of heat for comments he made about obesity. Earlier this week in an interview with AllHipHop.com he stated:

“No two situations are the same. If you are fat and nasty and you don’t like the way you look, do something about it. It’s simple,” the singer-turned-actor replied. Continuing his no-holds-barred rant, he said, “When you take a shower and you put your fat, nasty body in the shower and by the time you get out, the mirrors are all steamed up so you don’t look at what you did to yourself. That may sound offensive or insensitive but ultimately, you are big as hell because you have earned that s–t. You worked your a– off to eat everything in sight to get big as hell.”

“If you got a problem with the way you look, then you need to do something about it,” he added. “Excuses sound best to the people that’s making them up.”

He later to Twitter to clarify his comments:

“I look online now my words get twisted about plus size women? It’s unreal out here,” he wrote. “Why would I? Really? Never mind… God Bless you!”

“I’m not apologizing for what I said I’m apologizing for the bad choice of wording and execution of my point around obesity,” Gibson continued. “Y’all seen my documentary, I was brought in this world from a plus size mother and my sisters are plus size as well . . . I am concerned always!”

    being concerned doesn’t make him any less an asshole. (who can’t spell mind you, he’s been starring in dumbest tweets for what two or three years?!?)

    People need to stop

    Oops I meant to say people need to stop assuming that just because people are overweight its cause they over eat or have no self control. It’s just wrong. There are many reasons why people are over weight from hormone and thyroid problems…I don’t think he meant to come off as an jerk but he did..he wouldn’t feel too good if someone called his mother or sister fat and nasty right? despite what most people believe exercise doesn’t work for everyone especially if the person has a medical condition…he just needs to choose his words better…

    I am not a big Tyrese fan nor do I know much about this man, but i recently saw him in a film and he looked quit chunky. The swag he was wearing didn’t help nor did his choice of wearing clothes 2-3 times the size that would fit him, but he looked fat, short and really stupid. Just sayin’

      this is the dumbest comment I have ever read!
