Actor, singer and chronic personal PR nightmare-on-Twitter Tyrese has once again found himself getting bad press via the 140-charactr social network. While he usually gets roasted for his bad grammar and worse advice for the ladies, Jody got himself in hot water this time around after posting a new video of his which was almost  completely devoid of Black women (I peeped one in a corner). When his largely Black female follower-base took him to task, he informed them that its not his fault that the “best” women who came out weren’t Black.

How do I say this without snarking the women in this video…some of those women are only gonna be afforded “best” status by men who seem to have a fetish for the ‘exotic’.  Not that they weren’t pretty, but I doubt a White guy would have been so excited by the White women cast. And even if these were the most gorgeous non-Black women in the world, it takes a real asshole to say “Here’s a video from a Black artist with a largely Black female fan base. What kind of woman should we cast?” and comes up with that.

Anyway, forget Jody and this wack video. It wouldn’t matter if he cast Alek Wek or your cousin Keisha, this fool made a song with the Pied Pedophile of R&B AND Tyga. The girls were just the mayonnaise on the fail sandwich.

    Could we just have some self respect and not support these losers. If it was not for Black woman his black ass would be nowhere. Not that we need to be seen shaking our asses up in his or anyone elses videos anyway.

      I am waiting for the day black women will realize their purchasing power is a force to reckon with. You can single handedly bankrupt all these losers who continue to shit in your face. If i see a black woman buying a lil wayne album or any album from one of these ignorant ass hats, i will personally dash her a slap to the face.

      I have been boycotting all self hating, misogynists for years and I have been patiently waiting for my sisters to join me. He doesn’t care how Black women, the purchasers of his garbage feel about his videos? Has he forgotten that videos are marketing tools? Nothing matters more than if Black women like it! But if Black women continue to buy music from people who hate them, why should he or any of the clowns change?

      @d_nicegirl: I am with you, but I cannot call it a boycott because I have no interest in them or the music they produce.

    First I’d like to thank Tyrese for inspiring & provoking the writter in me to produce a 5pg piece of literature which I’m not even sure how to categorize. After viewing the video, I felt the full effect of Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion: “To every action there is always an equal and opposite reaction: or the forces of two bodies on each other are always equal and are directed in opposite directions.”;I reacted poetically with my 2nd sword, my pen, my mouth being the 1st sword.

    My comments immediately after viewing the video went exactly like this:

    (This one I think left on YT)
    Love Tyrese as an artist, however, I am once again dissappointed at the sterotypical display of one kind of beauty when it comes to women especially from a Black Man!

    @Tyrese I would b so happy 2 c a video from a Black Man full of beautiful diverse looking Black Women no disrespect youtu.be/-WfQN_M1pQc

    @Tyrese No u can’t please everybody, & every fan which I am, is not gonna like everything, but it’s not that serious
    *********************************************************************************************
    After that, I feel back because like I mentioned in a previous post it’s a double edge sword. Yes I want to see Black Women in videos by Black Men, however, positive images, not naked-3-way-baby-oiled-down twister.

    Sincerely…

      I feel sorry for you and all the rest of the LOST black women out here waiting for black men to validate them. This is what happens when you tie your existence to another group of individuals. SMH. Sad and pathetic.

      One question: IF BLACK MEN DON’T LOVE THEMSELVES–AND IT’S OBVIOUS THAT THEY DON’T–HOW THE FUGG ARE THEY SUPPOSED TO LOVE YOU????

      I’ll wait for the answer….

    While he’s focused on who’s in this video he needs to care about how craptastic this song is. This is just his piss poor attempt to stay relevant in the music industry especially with the Tyga feature. Tyrese has been acting for the last 10 years and just needs to stick to that, because there’s definitely no real effort here.

    9 times out of 10, nowadays, if a Brother is successful in mainstream Hollywood and constantly promotes demeaning misogynistic, negative, and foolish stereotypes its because he’s sold out and agreed to be a life time sucker of the white man’s d–k, literally and figuratively.

    This video is proof positve that Tyrese is in the Suckers Club.

    Back on your knees where you belong, Jody.

      You pretty much described the black MALE collective…not simply the black men in Hollywood. I’ve been saying it for a while: The black woman’s real enemy is staring her right in the face.
