Tyrese apologizes for sexist commentary about ‘promiscuous women’

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.

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. 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.

“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 f—ing horrible…. And clearly all the way off…. 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. “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.”
