Tyrese, not everyone can be as naturally handsome and ripped as you!
Sigh, another day, another celeb slipping up and saying their true feelings and then having to half-heartedly apologize once they realized their fans don't agree. Honestly, if we had a dollar for every time someone apologized just because of the reaction to their words instead of actually being sorry, we'd have lots of money!
Here's what he originally said when asked about him being a positive inspiration to live a healthier lifestyle:
"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 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. Excuses sound best to the people that's making them up."
Nothing about that is a positive inspiration, and it's all pretty offensive!
NOBODY knows better about making excuses and how they look than the person themselves. It's not an easy and simple situation like you might think, Tyrese, and we're appalled you'd believe that!
Of course, the backlash has made him apologize and come up with his OWN excuses:
"I look online now my words get twisted about plus size women? It's unreal out here. 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. 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!"
In other words, he's taking the 'I don't hate fat people, I have friends and family who are fat!' route. Nobody buys that with racism, with sexism, or any other kind of ism.
"We always associate addictions to cocaine, Heroin, and or alcoholic abuse . . . Food is the No. 1 addiction in America."
Thanks Tyrese, we're so glad we have these inspiring words from you after saying 'fat, nasty body' a bunch of times!
Look, we're all about second chances around here, but we have to see you earn those second chances — not just assume you get one after a few hours of people calling you out!
