After receiving backlash following his comments about people who are overweight, Tyrese has issued an apology “for the bad choice of wording and execution of my point around obesity.”
“Please sincerely forgive me for my fat and nasty comment my point was poorly executed yet insensitive and wrong,” the entertainer tweeted.
The controversy all started during an interview with AllHipHop, when the ‘Fast & Furious’ actor was asked about the kind of responsibility he has as an entertainer to inspire people to live healthier lifestyles.
“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.
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 sh*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. Excuses sound best to the people that’s making them up.”
Those comments were met with criticism via social media which prompted the actor to backtrack his comments. ”Remember ::.. Your BODY is a SLAVE of the MIND who and what you surround yourself with is a direct reflection of THOUGHT!!!”
