Tyrese took to Instagram to write a shade-filled open letter speaking out against controversial Republican candidate Donald Trump, adding to the list of celebrities who have expressed their issues with his campaign of hate.
In the post, the singer used a photo of Muslims praying outside of Trump Tower in New York City, voicing his personal offenses regarding Trump's comments against the religious community.
"You've offended my #Muslim community, and created racial boundaries and set my people up for hate crimes and to be targeted for bigotry because of the 'acts' of some," the Furious 7 star wrote. "Islam is PEACE...The ACTS OF SOME of ANY GROUP doesn't justify you spreading hate towards ALL of my people in the Muslim or Arab community... I'm deeply hurt and bothered by your antics and hatred towards my Muslim and Arab people."
Tyrese didn't stop there, though. He also stood up for the African-American and Latino communities, giving Trump warning that while his notoriety is entertaining, it doesn't guarantee him any votes, and the truth will shine through at the polls.
He also stated that Trump was doing the opposite of his "Make America Great Again" slogan, adding that, "This is for sure the most narcissistic self and family sabotage filled presidential campaign I've ever witnessed in my lifetime.This is NOT how you make America great again...I'm speaking on behalf of the #Human and all religious and spiritual and sexual preferences and you must and will be stopped."
