Tyrese has taken to the streets of social media to proclaim his allegiance to Will Smith after Eddie Murphy’s joke at the Golden Globes.

In case you missed it, the iconic comedian and actor, who was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award, ended his acceptance with a joke that referenced Will’s outburst during the Oscars moments before he slapped Chris Rock on stage. 

Eddie Murphy offered a “blueprint” for success to up-and-coming dreamers in the business.

“It’s very simple, just do these three things: Pay your taxes, mind your business — and keep Will Smith’s wife’s name out your f**king mouth!”

Watch the clip below. 

After the Golden Globes, Eddie made it clear that there was no malicious intent behind the joke.

He told Entertainment Tonight, “Yeah, because in reality, I’ve worked with Jada. I love Will. I love Will, and I love Chris — and it’s all love.” 

Apparently, Tyrese missed the memo because he hopped on Instagram, and his Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift drawers were in a bunch!

The actor and singer made it very clear that no one can influence him to turn his back on Will Smith and he implored everyone to “move on” while promoting Emancipation.

I’m still team WILL SMITH there’s nobody on this earth that will ever influence me to ever have a change of heart towards the BIGGEST INFLUENCE in my life…….

I’m just saying man…. Move on already I just watched EMANCIPATION for the 3rd time I just can’t believe how masterful this overall movie is…. #MyBrothersKeeper

I have a couple of questions for you:

  • Do you think Eddie Murphy’s joke was funny or was it in poor taste?
  • Does Tyrese have a point or do you think he’s doing the most and is back to his attention-seeking antics?
