After Social Media Lit His A** Up, Peter Thomas Apologizes For Comments About Dark-Skinned Black Women & Blonde Wigs
Peter Thomas says he has work to do and we see no lies there.
Two days after his disgusting comments regarding why dark-skinned black women should refrain from wearing blonde wigs or weaves, the former ex-house husband of Atlanta wants you to know that he’s sorry.
Thomas issued a deplorable tirade on Friday and then doubled down on his arguments in a second post later that evening. But after consulting with a few sisters that he respects, he said he had a change of heart. We’re sure that and the fact he probably lost a few followers urged him to make this plea for forgiveness.
This man went back to the drawing board and revised his eye-glass prescription for a more refined look before he delivered his message.
“We as black men should praise black women and use our voices to encourage and uplift instead of tear down and pick apart,” he wrote as the caption for his Instagram post. “I should have look at the woman as if she was my mother, sister, cousin and kept my negative comments off of social media. I was wrong. We all have work to do.”

“Social media world, two days ago I put up a post. I saw someone and I didn’t like the way they looked and I vented, alright? And all my sisters out there light my ass up,” Thomas said.
“Talked to a couple of them that I respect and they broke it down to me, you know what I’m saying. And I was wrong, as a Black man I was wrong. I should use my platform to uplift, to empower, to celebrate my Black women. Not to pick apart, not to tear down. My words was offensive to so many people that I respect and for that I truly apologize. It will never happen again. I should’ve looked at that woman like she was my sister, aunt, my mom, a relative, ok. I don’t know what she was going through that day. But I was reckless and for that, I promise you, I apologize.”
All in all, we can gather from this that Thomas accurately proved my first assumption–that his commentary about the unknown woman was based on the fact that she simply did not appease his eyes. For men like Thomas are complicit in fostering the notion that women are just here for the enjoyment of men. And as ridiculous as it is to admit, Thomas is not alone in this shallow ideology.
Hopefully he really understands the harm in what he disseminated out into the world and will do the necessary work to never make a mistake like this ever again.
