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!”
