Tyrese Apologizes for ‘Fat’ and ‘Nasty’ Comments


Tyrese sure learned a lesson after dishing out insensitive comments about overweight people being “fat” and “nasty.” The R&B singer was forced to issue an (maybe too late) apology.

He took to Twitter to admit that he is a work in progress and asked for his fans to forgive him for his “poorly executed” words, but he stands by his belief that overweight people are that size because of their own poor eating habits. “Food is the #1 addiction in America, he wrote. “#TruthTweet.”

Not sure if Tyrese made things worse or better, but here’s to hoping he’ll think before he speaks next time. — Terry Carter
