Tyrese Gibson usually makes headlines for his musical endeavors and movie roles. But these days the star is turning heads for some questionable comments about women.
On Monday, BET uploaded a video on Twitter of the newlywed sounding off on “promiscuous women who wanna get chosen,” the tweet read.
In the clip, he said, “…overly aggressive, promiscuous women they are never without a man, because they don’t have no standards.”
“If you’re single…you’re actually holding out, because you have your value,” he continued. “ You got women that are out here active in these streets.”
While BET has since deleted the controversial post, which includes some obscene language, it’s still floating around on social media. And #BlackTwitter is still fuming, accusing Gibson of misogyny and hypocrisy. (by Najja Parker The AJC)
Here’s what a few tweeps had to say on social media:
Why would you let a “promiscuous” man use your platform to slut-shame “promiscuous” women? https://t.co/ehMgS0xx3O

@BET @Tyrese Another week another “lesson.” Interesting that Tyrese never focuses on male promiscuity. I guess these women are sleeping with themselves. pic.twitter.com/bpn6T1SgQW

Just last month, Gibson was in hot water for his views on women who get plastic surgery. In the now-deleted Instagram post, he said they look like “manufactured clowns.”
The singer has yet to respond to his latest controversy.
