Singer and actor Tyrese faces backlash after slut-shaming “promiscuous” women in a video to BET. While the subject of his monologue was meant to outline how much respect he has for single women, at the end of the 1-minute video, the message turned out to be completely different.

This is what happens when you mean something and then you can’t find the right words and something else comes out. “I didn’t mean it like that”, is what Tyrese is probably thinking now, after the BET video in which he talked about single women vs women who would do anything to be in a relationship backlashed.

“I appreciate all the ladies out there that are still single”, Tyrese started his comment. “And they’re holding out. Don’t settle”. Ok, so far, so good. Then he says that women who are promiscuous – he calls them different names – are always in a relationship, as they are “ready to have sex with any and everything who’d wanna have sex with them.”

 

Reactions were quick to slap the 38-year-old actor and singer over his big bright smile and his know-it-all attitude.

“I really want Tyrese to LEAVE WOMEN ALONE”, tweeted Sylvia Obell, adding that he was spreading “inarticulate bullshit misogynistic views” on social media.

Blogger and YouTuber Resha went for BET in the following tweet:

“Nobody in their right mind would ask Tyrese how to spell “cat”, let alone how he feels about women”, she wrote.

 

Tyrese Darnell Gibson is not the craftiest person when it comes to words. The Grammy-nominated musician has posted an again-offensive post on social media just a few days ago. And yes, that one was directed towards women, as well. “Men know the difference in real hair and fake clip on’s…US REAL MEN SEE THE BULLS**T and IF He decide to rock with you it’s just cause they wanna get one off no one with EVER take you serious”, he wrote on Instagram, in a post that he since deleted. ‘
