Tyrese Hates Fat People; Calls Them “Nasty”

tyrese fat

Tyrese Gibson, singer/actor/whatever made it very clear that he doesn’t like fat people. Really, really doesn’t like them. From an interview he did with via Huffington Post:

AHH: What kind of responsibility do you feel as an entertainer, you have to inspire people to live healthier lifestyles?Tyrese: No two situations are the same. If you are fat and nasty and you don’t like the way you look, do something about it. It’s simple.

When you take a shower and you put your fat, nasty body in the shower and by the time you get out, the mirrors are all steamed up so you don’t look at what you did to yourself. That may sound offensive or insensitive but ultimately, you are big as hell because you have earned that shit. You worked your ass off to eat everything in sight to get big as hell.

If you got a problem with the way you look, then you need to do something about it. Excuses sound best to the people that’s making them up.

What? I don’t get the shower thing. Otherwise, I understand what he’s saying and I think I get what his point is (doesn’t mean I agree with it), although I have no idea why anyone would ask him his thoughts on “living a healthier lifestyle” — that question has nothing to do with anything. Seriously. The question right before it was about his latest single. There was no transition.

None of this is nearly as entertaining as the hilarious email misunderstanding he had with Amber Tamblyn.

He also fired off a few tweets trying to defend his position.

  • He has a right to his opinion and I have the right to completely ignore anything he says or any work he does. I have no idea who he is anyway and plan to keep that way. All appetites for any substance are ugly when uncontrolled but alcoholics and drug addicts always get more sympathy for their behavior, wonder if he says the same to them as he does to fat people. Won’t want the guy to be a hypocrite.

    • are you kidding lol alcoholics and drug addicts don’t get sympathy, they get shunned and judged and FORCED to get help, fat people are allowed to eat as much McDonalds as they like and god forbid you should every say anything mean about it, IMO they’re all as disgusting as eachother

  • He made some good points but he’s stating them w/ insensitivity and brashness so being an asshole trumps good points – also he’s irrelevant so it doesn’t help his ’cause’
    also he’s fit and nasty so he’s got something in common w/ the fat people he doesn’t like

  • I think he’s a douche….would he tell an anorexic person that they are ugly and that it is their fault!

  • Why are there so many people who don’t know him? He is an actor/singer (with really sexy voice). He never stated he hated fat people but it’s clear he has some discontent with excuses people make for being (i.e. playing victim).

  • Not sure how any ‘fat and nasty’ people would have the motivation to change themselves for the better when they’re being put down like that. They’ve already got immense self esteem issues and making a big change is hard when you’ve got assholes like him spewing off negative bullshit. I don’t care if it’s weight, looks or whatever else – you don’t say crap like that. If someone was happy being big, that would still classify them as fat and nasty by his standards (which makes the ‘point’ behind his answer completely moot). No one should have to feel like they’re worth any less because of it.

  • Hating overweight is the new racism, new anti-gay. Prejudice is not ok. People get back injuries, sick, veterans–they gain weight for different reasons–not all are eating twinkies, get educated. I personally hate his tats screaming that he’s over compensating & insecure. But, I’m not giving interviews on his out-dated tats.

  • “We tolerate shapes in human beings that would horrify us if we saw them in a horse.”

    Life is full of tough breaks. Doctors tell people with bad backs to lose weight all the time to help alleviate the strain. Most don’t. Life is all about choices. Crying politically correct tears isn’t being educated, it’s bahhhing along with all the other sheeple, “it’s nootttt myyyy faulttttt!!!!!”

    • Well, I find Marilyn Monroe gorgeous, yet she’d be considered overweight in Hollywood today. To each his own. If you are concerned about “sheeple” you are one following the most current social programming toward robotic looks. Horses that break their backs, GET SHOT …that’s why you don’t see them hobbling in the fields, you self-absorbed idiot.

  • I never said anything about looks and I don`t get where you are going with the horse thing, Karson. The name calling is a nice touch, but its okay. You don`t need to apologise for being wrong, I already know.

    • Weight, for you & Tyrese, is not ’bout “looks”? Of course it is…Hate??Nasty are insults. It’s not about ‘health’. Adele is heavier than Amy Winehouse. Is Adele nasty? Was Amy Winehouse “healthier” than Adele? NO. You cannot know by looks, what is reason for heavy or thin. My sister is disabled by chronic pain–she can’t work out at all. Keep making insults about weight toward everyone, without knowing person’s situation. Tyrese thinks he’s “real”, but weight is a stereotype. He’s trying to get pr by insulting people with stereotype. I’m done. Will never buy his music.

      • I could care less about Tyrese or you, Karson. What is “nasty are insults” supposed to mean anyway? I’m glad you’re done, because it will give you some time to read over what has already been said.

        The quote is from a man named W.R. Inge, and yes, it is about health. If your sister is disabled by cronic pain, she should watch her dietary intake. This is basic life skills 101. I am not even going to try and refute some of your other comments as your points defy logic. This isn’t personal, but I really do think you are taking my opinion that way, and as we are complete strangers, I think maybe my opinion probaly shouldn’t be all that important to you so let’s just let this go and continue on with our otherwise facinating lives, shall we?

  • You: What does “hate & nasty are insults” mean? Um, That’s the HEADLINE: “Tyrese Hates Fat People, Calls Them Nasty”….so, is he calling Aretha nasty, or is it Adele? He must be referring to his last boyfriend, to have such strong feelings. You’ve said nothing of substance, and have showed no understanding beyond yourself.

  • Well, you are persistant, I’ll grant you that. I read the title of the article. I also read the article itself. I didn’t see anything in Tyrese’s tweets about the people you are mentioning. Now let me try and clarify here – are we talking about celebrities, people you know or just shouting out random nonsense so we can feel like our voices are being heard? I will grant you are more lucid than our old friend guest from the Leeann Rimes threads, but you are not making a lot of rational arguements either. I never asked what the article was about, I asked what you were trying to say given your lack of sentance structure. Please stop trying to insult me, and try articulating your thoughts a little clearer if you wish to continue this dialogue because it is becoming not only tiresome to me but the other people who are also on this site. Thanks.

  • Perhaps you should take a reading comprehension class? I don’t see much support for Tyrese’s rude statements anyway. Most people don’t know him. No one cares what he thinks.

  • Tyrese you suck and you can go to HELL. People think that when they get a little bit of money, that gives them the right to say whatever pops in their head. I use to be a fan of tyrese, but I have lost all respect for you as person, singer, and actor. If you think fat people are so nasty, why don’t you put some of your money to use to help overweight people, instead of putting them down. Every time I see you on Tv or on the radio, I’ll turn it off because Tyrese, You DISGUST ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • wtf fat people don’t deserve money for being fat they can just exercise and watch what they eat. give that money to starving children or something not first world fatties that want to lose weight by putting as little effort in as possible

  • Wow it is funny how money can go to some people head. This man thinks he is so fine and everyone in his family is so fit. Don’t have me pull out the scale. The first thing tyrese should do is to get a reality check and then go buy some Vaseline and oil those damn crusty rusty lips before he talks shit again. Boo yah baby.

  • Tyrese can take his bullshit ass apology and stick it up his ass.what was first said is how you truly feel about people who are overweight. I hope you loose all of your fans because, YOU EARNED THAT SHIT!!!!!


  • I bet not one person that got offended here is under 150 lbs. And I bet half of your defense mechanisms just kicked in and you thought to yourselves angrily “150lbs isn’t fat” (it is)

  • some time can be a medical problem
    but if it is not a medical problem you have no one to blame buy
    yourself for getting fat and out of shape,
    people have a right to like and dislike what every they what,
    people make to many excause for there on condition.
    to lazy to do anything about
    they just want people to fell sorry for them.
    thats is not the answer,get up and to something for yourself;
    mr lazy
    mrs laszy
    miss lazy.
