For unknown reasons, Tyrese Gibson, an American R&B musician, commented on Instagram about “very much” bigotry in the south. He reported how election authorities had directed him away from the polls. And then informed him that he couldn’t register to vote straight away due to his pullover.
Tyrese makes a forceful message against the police enforcement establishment in a now-deleted Instagram video. According to the 43-year-old actor, he and Jeezy, real name Jay Wayne Jenkins, voted in the Georgia midterm elections together. “The whole dump on what happened today when I and my brother @jeezy and tried to vote. To put it nicely, this is utterly nuts,” he captioned the video.
“I and Jeezy went out here in Georgia to vote. The first thing that they got was.. Coz Jeezy got there before me, the first thing that they did was. They told him that he can’t vote because of your address and ID”. Tyrese says, emphasising that Jeezy has used the same ID and address “the last three times he went to vote.”
Although “they attempted to stop him from voting” previously. Moreover, he was enraged but able to keep his calm because “they knew it was occurring all the time.”
A shirt with the words “Stacey Abrams”
Tyrese stated that when he arrived at the booth wearing a “Stacey Abrams” sweater. Moreover, four individuals approached him and told him he needed to step outside before telling him he couldn’t vote because he hadn’t registered.
Stacey Yvonne Abrams was a member of the Georgia House of Representatives from 2007 to 2017. Moreover the minority leader from 2011 to 2017. She is also a lawyer, a voting rights activist, and an author. Brian Kemp, who received 53.5% of the vote to her opponent’s 45.8%.
He introduced himself as a Los Angeles native who had recently relocated to Atlanta. In California, voter registration and voting can be done concurrently on election day. However, my attempt to register and vote on the spot was unsuccessful because. “Most people were busy and moving,” and “a lot of us were quite last minute.”
They arrived at 2:30 p.m. to vote, only to be told that the polls would shut at 5 p.m. It was strange, he added, that they had to wait another two hours if they had a trip or other things to do. Those in power made it quite apparent that they needed to be back by 5.
Tyrese: Georgia’s Current Crisis
“They’re going above and beyond to find any small loophole. Moreover, any minor concept to keep us from voting, to keep our voices from being heard,” an accusation of racism.
You’ve been standing in line for four or five hours to vote. “I don’t know if you all know this. But the current governor in Georgia made it unlawful for you.
Jeezy and Tyrese were still permitted to vote after all of this, but the atmosphere was electrifying; he stated the black community was rallying around him and Jeezy, while the white community did nothing but stare.
In his own words, “after I finished voting, I was followed by two women in the parking lot, so everything was unpleasant”. He claimed this was done to prevent him and his friend Jeezy from voting. Several of his followers expressed their displeasure in the comments section. With some even accusing him of making everything a racial issue.
