R&B singer Tyrese had a few choice words to share about “fat people” during a recent interview with AllHipHop.com. The 34-year-old singer went on a vicious tirade against obese people when asked if he felt a responsibility to encourage people to live a healthy lifestyle.
“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 sh*t. You worked your a** 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.”
Were his statements meant to be motivational? As an artist, isn’t it a standard practice to inspire your fan base? Perhaps, he’s just earned a pocket full of piracy from his listeners in exchange for dollar menu items? He can do better.
