Tyrese says he didn't mean to diss Jay Z in the name of humanity, he was just asking powerful Black men to come together and save Black lives.
For what seems like the first time this decade, celebrities won't stop pleading for social and racial justice until equality is served.
Tyrese Gibson is the most recent Hollywood voice to chime in on an ever growing and never ending issue of police brutality on Black lives in America. The singer turned to Instagram yesterday to deliver a PSA to Hollywood's powerful Black men.
His message included an image of Jay Z, Future, DJ Khaled and others on the set of DJ Khaled's latest single, "I Got the Keys," and read, "They scheduled a video..... I hope they've scheduled other meetings about the state of black men and WHAT we need to do to change the shit that's going on......... "
According to TMZ, Tyrese's post wasn't intended to point fingers. Instead the "IG post was about all people of color needing to step up and come together -- especially powerful men like Jay Z, who has the stage and voice to influence real change ... like going to Congress to change gun and drug laws."
The Fast and Furious actor told TMZ he plans on reaching out to Hov to establish a game plan to "save black men from killing each other and winding up in jail."
