Charlamagne Tha God Apologizes To Reesa Teesa

On Monday morning, Charlamagne Tha God apologized for the “big back” jokes he made about viral TikTok creator Reesa Teesa.

I previously reported that while discussing “Who TF Did I Marry” on “The Breakfast Club,” Charlamagne said, “I gotta be honest. I hear a lot of big back behavior.” 

Jess Hilarious chimed in saying, “She do. She does give Sheila that was driving up the mountain.” (Referencing Jill Scott‘s role in Tyler Perry‘s Why Did I Get Married?)

Charlamagne added, “Some of you big backs…y’all gotta stop being so thirsty for a man. Big back belief isn’t like everyone else’s belief.”

During an appearance on the “Tamron Hall Show,” Reesa Teesa shared that she’s received a lot of negative comments, but the comments from Charlamagne were especially hurtful.

There was a person, a very famous personality that called me a ‘big back’ – talking about my weight,” Reesa said.  

She added, “I can already admit I’m self-conscious as a heavier woman I feel like how I look should not dictate whether or not I deserve…

Reesa Teesa said, “That was disappointing and it was hurtful – especially the one that was the more famous personality. Because again, I’m more than just my weight.”

Charlamagne Tha God apologized to Reesa Teesa saying, “I tell y’all all the time the easiest way to keep your own peace is not disturb the peace of others. I disturbed that woman’s peace and that wasn’t my intention. So, I apologize if my words made her feel that way.”

Instead of stopping there, Charlamagne added a few footnotes to his apology. 

No. 1 – I never said she don’t deserve love because of her size. I didn’t even know she was big. Jess told the story and I said it sounds like big back behavior and I started talking bout big back belief. 

Now, if y’all want to have a conversation about reinforcing negative stereotypes of big backs I understand – I’m open to it.

But, acting like I was having a conversation about Reesa Tessa’s looks and size that’s not accurate.

I was speaking in general terms about big back behavior and big back belief.

And I actually said nobody has to be that desperate because there is a man out there for you.

Charlamagne wasn’t done. He continued:

I do have one final point we all have social media and we all use it for different reasons and Reesa is getting a lot of props for being so vulnerable- salute to her.

But, I personally feel we have to stop bringing this stuff to social media if you don’t want people to have an opinion about it.

Because some of this stuff should be reserved for our therapists if we can’t handle people having an opinion about whatever we are venting about.

Keep it off of social media. That’s my personal opinion.
