Now this was just uncalled for!

Earlier this month, “Baby Boy” star Tyrese said a few things that didn’t sit right with the CURVY world. During an interview with AllHipHop.com and discussed how he really felt about CURVY people, calling them “fat and obese”. To get a better feel about this, check out this section of the interview!

We know readers, just remember that everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Even when it’s very disturbing and disrespectful towards another, let alone millions! One CURVY reader expressed her opinion after reading the actors comments. StraightFromTheA.com reported that, Tina, the reader with words that she needed to get off her chest, reached out to them and said this:

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!

So after this began to gain the attention of thousands, Tyrese then tweeted out apologies to the CURVY community.

What do you think, did Tyrese go a little far on the fat comment?

Tyerese is currently on tour with Ginuwine and Tank, and is working on his 3rd book, “Black Rose“, and released a documentary titled “A Black Rose That Grew Through Concrete“. Check out the video below!

  1. Wow.. Tyerese! Apology NOT accepted. I would not have guessed how ignorant and insensitive you are. You probably ONLY apologized because of the flack. Well you definitely lost a fan here, Are you that disrespectful to your Mother and sister who is also as you described them as fat and nasty?

  3. I have NEVER liked Tyrese. He is arrogant for no reason. I have always felt that everyone should be able to peacefully co-exist, whether you like them or not. I’m so tired of weight being an issue. I work out and I have always been happy with my thick self. I just find a man that will attack a woman’s appearance a COWARD. No ifs ands or buts about it. As much as us women go through to keep a smile on our face, ALL men should make us feel beautiful!!!!
