The actor/singer faced a ton of backlash about his insensitive comments and one StraightFromTheA.com reader reached out to me via email in anger about the comments.
subject: Tyrese’s comments
I had to reach out after reading Tyrese’s interview. I could not believe it!!! Being a thicka than a snicka sister and an ex loyal fan of Tyrese’s black a** I definitely went on Facebook and blasted on him. How dare he??? And if he finds us so repulsive we will see how his fan base diminishes…trust.
Anyway I thought about his interview and I did a search on google for pictures of his mother and POW there his black a** is standing between his mother and his sister and guess what they’re both thicker than me? So my question to Mr. Gibson would be….Bruh soooooo do you think yo ma & sister nasty? Ijs…until the next time be easy!
