Tyrese Rips Donald Trump

Tyrese Rips Donald Trump

The actor is not holding back on his disgust for the Republican candidate.

Published December 28th

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."

This really breaks my heart...... And inspires me at the same time....... The Muslim community decided to come together and pray IN FRONT of the #TRUMPTOWERS in NYC - Open note to Trump.... He has no idea of what's about to happen......... He has mastered the art of winning #Battles..... But he's for sure going to lose the #WAR........ The antics and the gimmicks look good and feel good right? Got you really thinking your doing it right?? ......... But when it's really time? #WATCH America show you how we #REALLY feel...... And we're not talking about manipulated pole numbers....... United we stand.... Together we fall...... 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.... Islam is PEACE..... THE ACTS OF SOME of ANY GROUP doesn't justify you spreading hate towards ALL of my people in the Muslim and or Arab community.... I'm deeply hurt and bothered by your antics and hatred towards my Muslim and Arab people.... You've offended my Latin community, you've offended my african American community - You will see........ This is NOT how you make America great again...... This is for sure the most narcissistic self and family sabotage filled presidential campaign I've ever witnessed in my lifetime....... It's going to take forever for your daughter who I think is brilliantly smart to recover from the land mines......... I feel bad for anyone in this country right now with the last name #Trump - when it's all said and done and the smoke clears.... You will remember what I said....... 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 you must be and will be stopped - #VotesDontLie the real people of America is going to show up and stop you when it counts the most... #votingday
