Tyrese Gibson believes promiscuous women have zero respect for themselves and the singer/actor had no qualms about saying so publicly in a recent interview.
To the surprise of absolutely no one, Black Twitter’s response was swift and brutal.
“Sluts, skeezers, hoes, tramps and overly aggressive, promiscuous women, they’re never without a man,” He said in a Monday, April 10, clip on BET Live, which was later deleted from the brand’s Twitter page. “Because they don’t have no standards. They’re ready to have sex with any and everything that wanna have sex with them. But, when you are single and you actually love yourself … you’ll hold out until God sends you what’s yours.”
Gibson said women who have been single for years value themselves and accused women who date of regularly soaking up lunches, dinners and lavish getaways as they “put a lot of miles on yourself down there.”
The statement did not sit well with Twitter users, who quickly questioned why Gibson should be given a platform.
I'm going to need men, especially black men, to stop telling women, especially black women, what the fuck to do with their vaginas.

BET got some fucking nerve putting Tyrese on air to tell women how to act, looking like a ghetto Batman villain. Who still watch BET anyway?

A few wondered why Gibson doesn’t call out men for pursuing sex.
Does he have words for promiscuous men too?

the double standard & sexism inculcated in @Tyrese's language is deeply problematic 2 me. Women are ALWAYS "MADE" 2 hold up "THE" standard

This isn’t the first time Gibson has landed in hot water for his comments on how women should behave. In March, he went on an Instagram rant against women who wear weaves and elect to get plastic surgery.
“At the end of the day, what I realize from putting up that post is that we are the first to attack each other, period,” Gibson said on Monday’s “The Breakfast Club” of the anti-unnatural women post. “So, if I offended women [by] making them think or believe that I don’t see the value in you because you may have hair, makeup and this and that — my words were twisted, that’s the last thing I’m doing — was to alienate my own fan base and demographic.”
