His Twitter followers jumped on his back two days ago after he posted behind-the-scenes footage of his newest music video “I Gotta Chick.”
But that wasn’t the drama. Unfortunately, nearly all of the women featured in the video were either White, Latino or some exotic mix. Only one Black girl was spotted in a room of ladies. When his fans tweeted to find out why more Black girls weren’t chosen, he responded:
“I had a 2 day audition. I welcomed ALL women and went with the BEST,” he tweeted. “I don’t do favors… Doesn’t matter the race!! I’m Black as shit!!! Love my sisters!! You do auditions and go for the BEST! Not race! Love u!”
You be the judge and look at the footage and tell us if more sisters should have been included. Is it Tyrese’s obligation to seek out more Black women if he wasn’t happy with who arrived to audition?
What do you think?
