After facing a lot of backlash for his recent controversial interview, actor Tyrese Gibson has finally apologised to his female fans.
The 38-year-old-actor took to his Instagram and posted a couple of photos alongside his "most sincere apologies" for the interview, directing his posts to all the women out there.
The first photo he posted was of a quote saying that a sincere apology has three parts: 'I am sorry,' 'It is my fault' and 'What can I do to make it right?'
Alongside the photo he wrote, "Ladies....... My most sincere apology is coming in ny next post....... Likely no one will see it but it's coming anyway........ I just got off with my mentor and she just came down on me in a major way, checked me caved my chest in with reality and made it plane..... Damn I've said some super stupid shit..... See my next post..... read my full message on my Facebook.com/Tyrese live love and embrace growth."
He went onto say that he has learned "it's not always "what" you say, it's the "how" we choose to say it."
"My mother taught me better than this..... lesson learned in life you will learn that It's not always "what" you say, it's the "how" we choose to say it. For the record I'm far from a misogynist, a male chauvinist or flat out mean..... My intentions were there but my delivery fucking horrible.... And clearly all the way off.... And for that I sincerely apologize to all of the ladies."
He continued, "Even after this apology.... Some may likely decide to NOT forgive me.... Time and consistency heals all wounds.... Although I've been consistently for years speaking on these topics and some of the same words in my message, I have never experienced what I am experiencing right now. - I've been getting dragged and feel the heat from my poor choice of words and approach to my messages, trust me......"
The 'Fate of the Furious' star concluded by saying "ladies you deserve better".
"This is about a man owning up to his actions, taking responsibility, recognizing how to do better, and actually doing better. Ladies you deserve better...."
For the unversed, in an interview given to BET, Gibson delivered a message to "promiscuous women," where he said, "s***s, s****ers, h**s, t***ps and overly aggressive promiscuous women" are "never without a man because they don't have no standards".
He encouraged single women to "hold out," not settle and know their self-worth.
