After Bashing Women Who Date A Lot, Get Surgery or Wear Weave, Tyrese Has One More Thing to Say!
Tyrese Gibson always seems to be putting his foot in his mouth lately and the actor took to social media to apologize for his latest faux pas. 

The "Fate of the Furious" star was put on blast following his interview with BET, where he made sexist comments about women.

In the video, Tyrese advised women not to 'settle' for a man. He took aim at overly aggressive and promiscuous women for not having any standards. 

He called out women who "are never without a man because they don't have no standards.

They ready to have sex with any and everything that want to have sex with them."


Tyrese also said in the BET interview, “You have women that are out here active out in these streets, they going to lunches and dinners every night. Private planes, mega yachts, it’s cracking. They’re never without. However, it comes with a cost, you gonna put a lot of miles on yourself down there, come on.”
The actor found out quickly that women were not down with his comments and tried to save face with an apology. Tyrese shared a photo of himself to social media on Saturday and wrote a lengthy apology in the caption. 

He wrote, "My mother taught me better than this….. lesson learned in life you will learn that It's not always 'what' you say, it's the 'how' we choose to say it. For the record I'm far from a misogynist, a male chauvinist or flat out mean. My intentions were there but my delivery [expletive] horrible…. And clearly all the way off…. And for that I sincerely apologize to all of the ladies."

Gibson admitted he has never received such a backlash, although he has addressed similar topics in the past. 

He continued, "Please accept this as my sincere apology for my poor choice of words – [expletive] 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."

The actor adds, "This is not just a regular IG post for me. 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."

Tyrese reiterated his point about women 'not settling', writing that he tells friends and daughter to "NOT settle for less than what she deserves and to feel beautiful in her own skin, no matter what society says.”

He continued, “My goal is and was not to tear down women, that’s NEVER been my intention and I’m sorry if it has come across that way…. As a man, all I can do is apologize and state that I’m open to learning, Trust me I have learned and from here on and in the future I will do better.”

My mother taught me better than this..... lesson learned in life you will learn that It's not always "what" you say, it's the "how" we choose to say it. For the record I'm far from a misogynist, a male chauvinist or flat out mean..... My intentions were there but my delivery [expletive] horrible.... And clearly all the way off.... And for that I sincerely apologize to all of the ladies... Even after this apology.... Some may likely decide to NOT forgive me.... Time and consistency heals all wounds.... 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. - I've been getting dragged and feel the heat from my poor choice of words and approach to my messages, trust me..... Please accept this as my sincere apology for my poor choice of words - [expletive] 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.... it's crazy how non-public figures can say and do some really dumb [expletive] and it will stay amongst your family and friends or local in your hood.... 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.... This is a real lesson learned... This is not just a regular IG post for me. 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. I was raised to think and feel certain ways, and I'm learning new things that combat those messages. I am not perfect or all knowing, nor am I the one to claim to be. 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. Ladies you deserve better...
