Tyrese Disrespects the ‘Star Spangled Banner’

- By Bossip Staff

Tyrese knows he should’ve represented to the fullest when he sang the National Anthem at the Lakers/Nuggets game on Wednesday but ole boy thought he’d jazz up the song by adding some extra ish.

Tyrese Gibson left the rock he was hanging out under to sing the National Anthem for the Lakers game Wednesday night. He probably thought it would get him some postive media coverage.

He was wrong!

The Transformer actor decided to play word-play with the beloved pregame staple and fans were not very happy about it. Instead of singing the phrase “our flag was still there,” he replaced the words with “our Lakers were still there.” Whether they were Lakers fans or not, the change caused the audience to “boo” Tyrese through the rest of his performance.

Like any good celebrity, Tyrese took to his Twitter and told the world he felt sick today before promptly returning under his rock.

Dumb @ss. Trying to get some hype is where you went wrong. That’s what happens when your career is on the outs, you’re on blast for dissing your wife and you can’t catch a break to save your life.

    Awh, man….Tyrese, don’t mess with the die-hard “Americans…”

    Now Tyrese is going to disappear and his name will be wiped from all records…and when you go to his house there will be a family that will say, “Tyrese who? We’ve been living here all our lives…”

    Very idiotic at best.. That song and the American flag are never to disrespected… Thats like changing the words in church to Amazing Grace.. Silly mistake, but he will recover….

  • barb

  • Butterscotch

    I feel like this happens every few years (anyone remember RKelly’s Chicago steppig version?). Maybe artists need to limit their “remixing” to periods when we’re not at war…something tells me that would still not be enough though. It’s kind of a hit or miss thing, depending on your audience. Kinda shocked that happened in L.A.
