Y’all I hate to write about Tyrese twice in one day. But this conversation right here, is an important one for the culture. So, I guess because Tyrese and his wife abstained from sex for sixty days, he likely views himself as pious and righteous. And in his new and elevated space, he’s taking the time to look down on the “promiscuous women.” The “hoes,” “sluts,” “skeezers”…you know the “aggressive” types. (I’m sure you realize these are Tyrese’s words not my own.) And while most of these rants take place on his social media accounts, the latest on is brought to us by BET, the network dedicated to Black people. You can listen to a portion of the rest of them in the video below.
Sadly, far too often Black women are not considered a part of the equation when it comes to Black folk. And perhaps that’s the reason this video ever saw the light of day. But it did. And as you can imagine, when it hit the internet, people had a LOT to say about it. And most of it was not favorable but it was spot on. Check out the response on the following pages.
And then Kimberly Foster, creator of For Harriet went all the way in, in this string of tweets.
