Tyrese Gibson has finally spoken out after posting his controversial tweet about South African racial dynamics. Mzansi social media users gave him no peace as they blasted the actor's Instagram page demanding an apology. He eventually caved in and apologised to those who felt offended.
The actor shared the apology on Instagram and said it was the longest video he has ever recorded. In the footage he explained that his words were twisted and misunderstood.
"I will apologise to all those people who feel a way."
South Africans were not quite ready to forgive him though as they continued to slam him for spreading fake and dangerous news. To make matters worse, it seems he posted then quickly deleted the apology, thus angering Saffas even more.
Twitter user pontsho_58 said:
"You messed with the wrong nation!"
"Mxm. It’s a broken link."
"Apology not accepted... Actually we should start boycotting everything that's written Tyrese..."
"IT'S A BROKEN LINK!! Where’s the video?"
"I think he uploaded the video and took it down."
"This link of yours is not working! Luckily some of our ground forces were able to record the video before you took it down. Stop disrespecting us."
Mzansi celebrities have joined in the call for Tyrese to fall. Bonang Matheba and Dineo Langa took to Twitter to blast the Fast & Furious actor for his initial post.
