Tyrese fumes over the success of “ratchet shows” while addressing the recent cancellation of ‘It’s Not You It’s Men’


Unfortunately Tyrese Gibson and Rev Run didn’t make enough noise with the premiere season of their talk show ‘It’s Not You It’s Men’ to be handed a second season from the OWN network, the duo instead were handed their walking papers and directed to the nearest exit as the network prepared to put most of their fuel behind their new drama series’ ‘Greenleaf’ and ‘Queen Sugar’. But in a new lengthy Instagram message the R&B crooner still sings Oprah’s praises and says that the dismissal was somewhat bittersweet, check it out below..

It breaks my heart to post this.. the #OWN Network has decided to pass on SEASON 2 of our show… ( #watch this full clip the link is in my Instagram bio )…… Message to one of my biggest inspirations mother Oprah Winfrey and team.. Honestly as much as I want to be mad and disappointed, I can’t be because you believed in us enough to give us a shot. A shot that you could of given to anyone…… We were inspired to have a moment to finally spark a #mature dialogue and put some positivity on the air and not another RATCHET show throwing drinks, fighting and taking things into ratchet levels for ratings….. THAT WOULD OF BEEN EASY RIGHT….? With love in my heart and pure determination I say this…. On behalf of myself and my best friend and mentor, REV RUN…  Thank you to all of the fans who rocked with us and tuned in….. Dammit! Let me see if I can get the CHAIRMAN and CEO of NETFLIX on LINE 1… #ItsNotYouItsMEN will live on! Oprah gave some some strong advise that I will hold onto as we look for our new home……. “Think like a KING, a KING is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness.” -Oprah ………………….. ( what was your favorite episodes? What did you take away? What heated debates did you and your crew have after each show?
