Tyrese Gibson, the former model who is now an actor, will not apologize for his remarks about overweight people. During his interview while promoting “A Black Rose That Grew Through Concrete”, he was asked about his responsibility in encouraging a healthy lifestyle. He responded by saying:
“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.”
After Tyrese made these comments, there were some people who were attacking him. He quickly posted this message on Twitter:
“I look online now my words get twisted about + (plus) size women? it’s unreal out here… 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… We always associate addictions to cocaine, Heroine (sic), and or alcoholic abuse… Food is the #1 addiction in American (sic).”
What can you say about Gibson’s comments?
K. Michelle will not be seen on the third season of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. The reality star recently announced that she will be having her own VH1 reality show. Maybe this is the reason why Michelle did not attend the party for the second season of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. She said,”God is just bringing me to a whole different place. My mouth is still bad. I drink and act a fool, but I just don’t think that [Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta] is where I need to be. I do have my own show coming on VH1. You guys are gonna like that one a lot. You really are.”
When K.Michelle was interviewed at Power 105.1′s Breakfast Club, she revealed that she won’t be appearing on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta anymore because she wants to concentrate on her music career. She also said that it is not appropriate that you would thank God for your blessings then after that you will be cursing other people. She said, “I’m announcing that I won’t be on ‘Love & Hip Hop’… I just feel like when God is bringing you to the positive, it’s very hard to say ‘Thank you Jesus and f*ck you b*tches.’” Some people are speculating that Michelle’s reality show will be produced by the same people who were producing Love & Hip Hop, Mona Scott-Young.
Congratulations to K.Michelle!
