The ‘America’s Got Talent’ host has set the record straight after a journalist claims he’s ‘anti-bathing’ and insists his remarks were ‘misinterpreted.’
AceShowbiz –Terry Crews has spoken out on his stance on bathing after a journalist “misrepresented” his comments.
The 53-year-old “America’s Got Talent” host recently revealed he showers up to three times a day because he sweats so much, but added, “If you ain’t been sweating, you don’t need to shower.”
Journalist Richard Newby tweeted an article with Terry’s comments and said, “I am 110 (per cent) not surprised that every celebrity to come out as anti-bathing has been either white or Terry Crews,” prompting a Twitter exchange between the pair.
“But I am 110 (per cent) surprised that you’re a ‘writer’ who actually never read the article…,” fired the “White Chicks” star, prompting Richard to reply, “But the thing is, I did, Terry.”
“I’m glad you shower, man. That’s great. But the whole ‘First of all, if you ain’t been sweating, you don’t need to shower,’ fits under anti-bathing.”
Terry responded, “Ok Mr. Writer… who alive doesn’t sweat?”
Things got even more heated after a fan asked Richard, “Why do celebs come after you like that?” who chimed, “Lol. I don’t care at all. If he wants to get defensive about the dumb thing he said about showering that’s on him.”
“I’m not defensive at all. You’re the award winning writer for @THR. I’m just an actor,” insisted Terry. “I clearly stated I am not anti-bathing yet you contend that’s what I meant. So you have no responsibility to be correct when you tweet?”
The actor went on to say he doesn’t mind having a disagreement, “but it’s quite another thing to be misrepresented. Especially by a respected member of the media.”
