Recently, Tyrese Gibson came under fire for comments that he made about sexually promiscuous women, and on Friday, he took to Instagram to apologize. D
During an interview with BET.com that was published on Monday, Gibson spoke about "sluts, skeezers, hoes, tramps, and overly aggressive promiscuous women," who "are never without a man because they don't have no standards" and later added, "They ready to have sex with any and everything that want to have sex with them."
However, on Instagram, he wrote, "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 f–king horrible.... And clearly all the way off.... And for that I sincerely apologize to all of the ladies."

He then added, "Please accept this as my sincere apology for my poor choice of words — s–t gets real when it goes from a social media dragging to my own wife giving me the side eye and coming at me, even she's not happy with the way I've conducted myself."
"I want to truly say that I'm sorry, I'm not APOLOGIZING in an effort to be politically correct, I apologize as a man first for the things that I've recently said about choices women have the right to make, for the terms that I've used and the way I've come across.
