Tyrese apologizes for sexist commentary about ‘promiscuous women’

– I've been getting dragged and feel the heat from my poor choice of words and approach to my messages, trust me….. lesson learned in life you will learn that It’s not always ‘what’ you say, it’s the ‘how’ we choose to say it. 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. And clearly all the way off…. lesson learned in life you will learn that It's not always "what" you say, it's the "how" we choose to say it. Ladies you deserve better…

He continued: “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. 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…. They ready to have sex with any and everything that want to have sex with them.”
On Saturday, the actor and model apologized for his comments in a lengthy Instagram post. 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…. HOT TOPICS: Tyrese had a few words to say about women and you know Wendy had something to say. And for that I sincerely apologize to all of the ladies,” he wrote, explaining that he’s been speaking on similar topics for years, but has never experienced criticism as harsh as the kind he’s received over the last six days. 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. I am not perfect or all knowing, nor am I the one to claim to be. Show Full Article I am not perfect or all knowing, nor am I the one to claim to be. The Fate of the Furious is now playing in theaters nationwide. 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. Some may likely decide to NOT forgive me…. The Fate of the Furious might be riding high at the top of the   domestic box office this weekend, but one of its stars is backpedaling on a series of controversial statements made earlier this week. I was raised to think and feel certain ways, and I'm learning new things that combat those messages. Talk show host Wendy Williams — who, in the past, has come under fire for making insensitive remarks   about the LGBT community — questioned Gibson’s seemingly self-appointed status as the “moral police,” telling her live studio audience no one “asked” the 38-year-old for his opinion on issues of gender. Time and consistency heals all wounds…. 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…. For the record I'm far from a misogynist, a male chauvinist or flat out mean….. This is a real lesson learned… This is not just a regular IG post for me. And for that I sincerely apologize to all of the ladies… Even after this apology…. My intentions were there but my delivery f—ing horrible…. “My mother taught me better than this….. My intentions were there but my delivery fucking horrible…. 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. “Please accept this as my sincere apology for my poor choice of words – S— 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.”

Read Gibson’s full apology above. And clearly all the way off…. I was raised to think and feel certain ways, and I’m learning new things that combat those messages. Tyrese Gibson, who made his Fast and Furious   debut as Roman Pearce in 2003’s 2 Fast 2 Furious, ruffled feathers when he discussed “sluts, skeezers, hoes, tramps, and overly aggressive promiscuous women,” in an interview with BET posted Monday, adding that   they “are never without a man because they don’t have no standards. For the record I’m far from a misogynist, a male chauvinist or flat out mean….. Ladies you deserve better…”
Following the publication of his BET interview, Gibson endured a barrage of online   backlash from fans and entertainment industry figures alike.
