Singer-actor Tyrese Gibson (pictured smiling above at CinemaCon 2013 earlier this week), must have been feeling the heat because he is now back tracking on his “fat & nasty” comments about overweight people.
Just last week his blunt comments went viral and he received a lot of negative press and backlash from his social media followers.
In an attempt to mend some fences and elaborate on what he said, the 34 year-old took to his twitter page to explain himself. Check it out below:
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!
This is what happens when you decide to not just be an artist or an actor but use your heart. It creates controversy and unwanted energy.
I’m done with the topic… I’m sure my last round of tweets won’t be posted cause the goal is to get hits and traffic on your sites.
I love you ALL know that… I have my shortcomings I’m not perfect even as a public figure. I’m working hard at being a better me everyday!
Well there you have it! Look out for Tyrese in the upcoming ‘Fast & Furious 6′ flick, in theaters next month.
