Singer/Actor Tyrese Gibson Apologizes for Message to Women to not be Promiscuous

Tyrese: Forced to “man up” for his personal opinion that went against the feminazi narrative

I wasn’t offended by his message. Then again, I’m not a raving sex-positive liberal feminist.

From Hollywood Reporter: After a controversial interview earlier this week, Tyrese Gibson has penned a lengthy apology to his female fans.

During a video interview with BET that was published Monday, the Fate of the Furious star delivered a “message to promiscuous women,” where he said, “sluts, skeezers, hoes, tramps and overly aggressive promiscuous women” 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.” He encouraged single women to “hold out,” not settle and know their self-worth.

He continued, “You have women that are 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 interview garnered instant backlash on social media and, most notably, from talk show host Wendy Williams, with many slamming both Gibson and BET for providing him a platform (BET said the network did not endorse his specific comments.)

In a series of posts to his Instagram account on Friday, the actor and singer offered his “most sincere apology” for the interview, directing his posts to all women.

“Ladies,” he began, “I just got off with my mentor and she just came down on me in a major way, checked me caved my chest in with reality and made it plane… Damn I’ve said some super stupid shit.

He went onto say his mother taught him better and 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,” he wrote. “My intentions were there but my delivery f—ing horrible. And clearly all the way off. And for that I sincerely apologize to all of the ladies.”

Acknowledging that some of his fans might decide not to forgive him for what he said, he hopes time and consistency will heal 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,” he admitted. “I’ve been getting dragged and feel the heat from my poor choice of words and approach to my messages, trust me… 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.”

He continued, “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.”

  1. Ladies do deserve better, alright, as in this message needs to be blasted from everywhere, not just BET. Men, too, need to be shamed for not keeping their pants on. Adultery and fornication destroy societies.

  2. “hold out,” not settle and know their self-worth.

    A good way to prevent catching a disease which will rot you from the inside out.

  3. seems to me the only ones offended were the “sluts, skeezers, hoes, tramps and overly aggressive promiscuous women”…anyone else would say he is speaking the truth.
    the millennials have the highest rate of drug-resistant STDs…so, yeah,
    they should make the choice to abstain, seek marriage, and not live by their genitals

    • MomOfIV . . . very well put. Unfortunately, so many of today’s young woman are so “used up” that by the time they are thinking of “marriage” the young men who might be excellent choices . . . do not choose to “choose them as a marital partner” due to their past. Yes, we all know that men in the past have gotten away with this kind of behavior, but them . . . there are many women who would “not choose these kinds of men as being suitable marital partners.” It is always better to “err on God’s side” that be wingin’ it alone.

  4. Oh brother.

    As a reformed “skeeze” myself, I say, without reservation, that Gibson’s first message was dead-on correct.

    I was the second generation/wave of sluts. To be clear, my mother was NOT loose; however, I was born in the late 60s, so I came of age in the 80s. I think the first generation of sluts were the girls from the 70s (the off-spring of the original hippies). As a rebellious teen, I bought the propaganda being peddled hook, line, and sinker. Thankfully, I met my now-husband while I was still young (21); we married days after my 23rd birthday, so my slutty days were short-lived.

    Even with its short duration, those promiscuous years did untold damage to my soul and psyche. Thankfully, I was smart enough to keep from getting pregnant, but promiscuity offers far more misery than an unwanted child.

    Sex is supposed to be sacred; it’s intended to be a Sacrament to help bind husband to wife, with the help of the Holy Spirit. Sex outside the marital bed is nothing more than mere copulation.

    I am ashamed of my past, and I SHOULD be: I behaved shamefully. I have taught my son better, you can be sure of that!

    Unless we can teach our children to rein in their sexual appetites, to respect themselves and others, we will remain on the collision course we’re on. Sadly, I think we’re doomed…and I played a role in it. 😢

    • Recynd77,
      we are all sinful and not deserving of everything our Lord and Savior has done for us…but, when we repent and ask forgiveness in His name, we are forgiven. You are a follower of Christ, and sound repentant in your words, so I know He has forgiven you.
      Release your burden and give it to Him.
      The world is a mess because people have rejected Christ and those that repent and come to Him will be healed and saved….it is not too late, but at some point it will be.

    • Recynd77 . . . I was brought to tears by your post. It was nothing short of being spiritually poignant. Thank goodness, we have the opportunity to turn around our lives if we have sinned, and through the Atonement of Jesus Christ . . . we can still be saved in His Kingdom. We may be left with the physical and emotional scars of our sins, but it is important to note that when the Lord instructs us to “forgive other’s their sins” it also means we need to work at “forgiving ourselves of our sins.” God Bless you for sharing such a strong testimony to the rest of us.

    • Sister, thank you for this beautiful remark and for raising your son to be aware of the harms of promiscuity.

      Although I was not a virgin when I married, I was determined to honor my God and my bride by avoiding any hanky-panky until we were married. I even saved our first kiss for when we were at the altar. Let me tell you, that kiss was fireworks! Later, when I saw my wife disrobed for the first time, I was literally jumping up and down with excitement!

      The best sex is guilt-free sex, without a doubt. It’s meant to be enjoyed heartily as a gift from God, not stolen and consumed in shame and darkness.

  5. Any amount of “shame” in this society just seems to drive the left nuts. Completely and totally nuts. We were a great, united country when we were a formally Christian society. Now, the people here would probably screw cats and dogs if given the chance. It’s sad. Without faith, the soul and body rot away, together.

    • My husband is always saying: “Where is the shame and guilt in today’s people?”
      It’s difficult to feel shame and guilt when people are encouraged to feel entitled to everything that makes them feel “happy” and that makes the devil smile. I pray we (as a people) reject the devil’s ways and follow Jesus with a repentant heart.

  6. I think that Mr Gibson did a great thing is “telling it like it is” even thought the Progressives rail against him for doing such. He owes no apology for telling the truth!

  8. Tyrese Gibson has the right to say it, and, the right to apologize as he sees fit. The fact of the matter is that young women are getting very worried they will not have a male by their side for the rest of their lives. They have an excellent reason to be afraid. Men are entirely fed up with current reality and have gone one way or the other. The one way is to join the sluts. The other way is to avoid all women until they find a virgin, or; find a repentant one that is not yet insane. Young women, and old, have been forewarned. Speaking from experience and observation: we are about to see an overnight explosion in STD/STI infections which will overwhelm the medical system and probably the morticians as well. We are also going to see a collapse in the economy directly related to the end of marriage and common law arrangements. Prepare for the end of our species. Unless of course we have nuclear war first in which case the species will survive but those with STD’s won’t. Hurray!

  9. What a baby. Tear up and burn your man card, Tyrie.
    What you said ORIGINALLY was the CORRECT thing to say!
    If you can’t stand up to those who disagree that a woman should not fight for her “right” to be a whore, regardless if that offers her the “easiest” path to getting what she wants out of a man and out of life generally (aided by a pro-abortion mindset to clean-up afterward), then you shouldn’t be in the entertainment business. Because you have a DUTY to push moral values to the easily-influenced youth that follow you and consume your products!
    Your “apology” is an affront to everything that is good and decent in women and the world generally. You offend me by your cowardice and your ease in turning about-face and giving in to the far left, Godless feminists! Real, Godly women are so much better than that, and capable of so much more in life! And REAL, Godly men deserve more!
