Terry McMillian Deletes her Apology


Last week all hell broke loose after writer Terry McMillan blasted Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith on her Twitter page accusing them of pimping out their kids...

After a firestorm of back lash Terry posted an apology of sorts for using the words pimp and exploit to describe the Smiths. The apology has since been taken down.

So what, she deleted it. Once you apologize for your words or actions, you don't keep apologizing. Let it go.

TERRY MC'TEL EM said...

ya'll know how the f**k i TRULY feel!

Oh well, she backtracked like a bitch. I knew it would happen. That's the type of PC world we live in. Everyone's afraid of offending someone. Some people need to be oh-fucking-fended.

She initally meant what she said, and I agree. Stand by your words Terri, regardless of who feels otherwise.

Terri has balls. Gotta love her.

This chick was looking for attention! It would've been okay if she would've said what she had to say and left it like that, but she had to apologize, then she went off on the people who called her out, and now she deletes the apology. Girl get your old ass off of twitter and go find your attention somwhere else!

Terry McMillan said...

My management team & publicist told me that it would be in my best interest to apologize in the same manner in which I apparently and unwittingly offended. I fully stand by what I said but on the advice of my partners that help build & promote my business interests I had to apologize for the manner in which I expressed my opinion and thought on that particular subject matter. For those that can't comprehend the dynamics revolving around public relations regarding the entertainment arena then let this be a case study for you.

Maybe a bad choice of words but she apologized. So what she deleted it, not like she posted "Syke" instead like she took it back.

@TERRY MCMILLAN..Thank you for all of your books you wrote,you tought me so much..and thank you for speaking the truth about the parenting skills of those lumie puppets....I know for PR you had to apologize,I know you didn't really mean to say sorry.....lol

Hit or Miss said...

Well they are pimping her and I'm getting annoyed by her with just one song. Maybe cause Jada annoys the F out of me. She sickens me like she's a major star. Girl Will put you on...the only interesting thing about her is her relationship with Tupac. Jada you aren't pretty and every interview you have to talk about will which means by yourself you're not interesting. Now you put your kids on in order to get some more shine. Terry don't let these people gansta you.

I cannot believe black people have bought into the Smith family. They are all incredibly obnoxious and annoying. They are not some black dynasty, they are greedy narcissists.

Their kids are ugly and untalented. The parents are bisexual freaks. They are scientologists. You might as well support the Palins if you're going to support the Smiths. No real difference.

Will just wants to make enough money to hide his sexual demons by lavishing his lovers with gifts for their silence. He has fucked so many MEN in exchange for his fame. He is a disgrace to manhood. Jadan will end up gay too. Willow is a brat, will end up some power lesbian like her mama.

At least they have enough money to keep their kids away from other children. Thank you, will and jada door keeping your spawn in their Hollywood cocoon,

Terry, you should have stood your ground. Fuck these delusional black female zombies that threatened to not buy your books. Fuck em.

The Real Fedup said...

Teri thank you for having the balls to say what we all been saying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *claps*

You just now getting the heat and backpedeling on your statements. But she is right....Jada and Will is pimping their children instead of enforcing their children to focus on being a child and to go to dam SCHOOL!

Terry should shut up , WHO TALK'S ABOUT SOMEONE'S KIDS.

McMillian was foolish to apologize in the first place. As a writer, it is part of one's job to be a social commentarian. Writer's should not be afraid to speak out when we see madness, writer's are cultural critics and why write if you cannot backup your words with conviction?

I'm a writer--so I know of what I type.

It's so evident that the Smith's are pimping their kids. You don't think Denzel Washington couldn't have gotten recording or acting contracts for his kids? Denzel & his wife had the sense to put their kids on the education track and last I read, his kids were being educated at Ivy league colleges. Meanwhile, the Smith's have their not even teenage children shucking and jiving like they're 20 year olds. lmao.

I liked Terry McMillan before and I still like her and her work.

One voiced opinion isn't gonna make me dislike her because if that were the case I wouldn't support half the artists I did and still do.

I also find it interesting that she is not the only person who feels that way about the Smiths.
Just Sayin'....

@1:06 AND THATS WHY THEIR KIDS WILL BE LOOKED AS GHETTO HOLLYWOOD. WELL EDUCATED, TALENTED HOLLYWOOD OFFSRINGS ARE GOING TO THUMB THEIR NOSES AT THE SMITH KIDS BECAUSE THEY HAPPEN TO GAIN TRACTION ON DADDY MERITS, AND NOT ON THEIR OWN BASIC EDUCATIONAL ACHIEVEMENTS..GOOD FOR DENZEL AND HIS WIFE, FOR PUSHING THE IMPORTANCE OF AN EDUCATION. HOPE WILL AND JADA TAKE SOME LESSONS ON HOW HOLLYWOOD PARENTING IS DONE. FROM A TRUE, VERY INTELLIGENT HOLLYWOOD POWER COUPLE SUCH AS MR & MRS WASHINGTON.

I agree with 1:06

Whatever, Terri, you only apologized because satan ie Oprah will black ball you for talking about the smiths. And terri knows that.

Less of an apology more of "Oprah, don't be mad".

If she was really concerned about the welfare of the children, why wasn't she a woman about it and speak to the parents instead of thru social media? A real woman would have spoken to the parents, simiarly as when during the day a child did something wrong the real adults told the parents not the neighbors. Finally, if the state of California, specifically there child welfare system has no problem with the parenting of the Smiths why should any of you? It is not like these children will be on welfare or crack or need society to take care of them. As a matter of fact, they probably will be taking care of many of you thru their taxes!

Anonymous said...

@2:47

Spoken like a true dick rider. Unless you're in their tax bracket, they are taking care of you too!

How do you know they will not be on crack? Charlie Sheen is using up my tax money with his arrests,ambulance visits, etc, he is a leech. Idgaf how much he pays in taxes. Also, most celebs have huge tax shelters they use to hide money. I doubt the smiths are paying all that much money in federal income taxes. Let's see if uncle Sam comes for that ass in 20 years.

No one is saying the kids are abused or neglected to get off the child services thing. But they are being used and exploited and pumped so their talentless parents can make even more money. And you idiots are helping them do just that by supporting their projects when you need to be focused on your own kids and why they are flunking out of school or fucking at 10 years old or trying to look like Nicki Minaj.

Get off the dicks of celebs who wouldn't piss on your simple ass if you were on fire. I swear, celebrity dick riders are the reason why this nation is failing.

Why because I'm telling the truth? The smiths are nothing but ghetto trash with money just like beyonce and her husband. heh no amount of money is going to change that.

And will's aasociation with jz and his ghetto slut wife makes him and jada look even worse.

Natural Is Where It Is said...

LOL,I love Ms. Terry

Hit or Miss said...

I agree these celebs don't do jack for us, but we the consumers are the ones keeping them alive. Let me tell you how simple minded people are. The darn Beyonce stans are planning to buy three of her new c.d. a piece in order to make her number one and platinum the first week. What a bunch of lame-O's. Brainwashing at it's finest.

Anonymous said...

Isn't it sad? And the thing so funny is that beyonce wouldn't give any of them the time of day if she saw them on the street; she probably tell them to take their poor asses out of her face and go collect their food stamps. Beyonce doesn't care for the less fortunate and this fact has been well known for years.

Terry ain't got shit to worry about. Waiting to Exhale went down as a classic in both LITERATURE and FILM and nobody can take that away from her. Fuck all this blackballing conspiracy, unless them mofos gon' go back in time and keep Waiting to Exhale from coming out on the shelves. Little known black history fact: Jada owns the movie rights to "The Coldest Winter Ever" by Sister Souljah. Sister Souljah owes a great debt to Terry for breaking down the door for modern black literature (notice I said MODERN, 1990s and forward)...so give credit where credit is due.

Oh my god I can't believe that ugly scare crow looking lesbian got her hands on that are you serious? Shot I hope to god she'll have enough sense and get a real actress to play winter.

@3:53 when the check start slowing down, birds of a feather...they are simply using eachother for status, and business ventures. we all know jay got to fill his get money high, so he's got his eyes locked on wi$$ow..Jada could careless what happens to her child, all she see is willow being a star and that jay is pushing her out there so. Will, he's just grabbing on to jada's boxers for the ride, just like beyonce with jay...so, like i said birds of a feather damn sure flock together..

Quiana said...

I love you Terry for telling it like it is. We the people have an opinion just like you and we called how we see it if the Smiths can't take the heat then get out of the motherfucking kitchen.

@4:10p

In the early 2000s, Sistah Souljah used to do those Total You tours and once when it came to L.A., SS gave a lot of gratitude to those who supported her.

Then she announced that her and Jada were doing a collabo bringing it to screen. She tried to put the spotlight on Jada but by the lengthy delay, you could tell not only was Jada there, she didn't want to be bothered - and people were applauding.

After that, nothing else was said about bringing Coldest Winter to the screen and SS stopped doing those tours.

These Lumie puppets(illuminatti puppets,I coined the word myself ~SB from Long Island)Um um...are freaks....greedy freaks...Jaada looks like a bitch,like a mean hood rich bitch,she is anorexic weighs the same as she dis at 15 years old...WWillow better stay thin or her bitch faced mom will turn her stiff nose up at her...JJada we know you don't eat, all you do is fcuk, hopefully only will...a woman can't satisfy a gay man, listen to the "VAGINA POWER" Woman on you tube she'll tell you how you can't hit that male g spot like another man can....JJAda why did you get those cheek implants, you look like MADAM the old puppet,FROM SOLID GOLD BACK IN THE 70'S lol lol!!!!!

@Quiana - hella cosign. She should never had apologized in the first place. Fuck sugarcoating and fuck beatin around the bush. She dropped an opinion that a multitude of people happen to agree with more/less. So be it.

@3:41 If you think the smith's kids are too young, that's one thing, but who the hell are you to call someone elses kid (who have done nothing wrong as of yet) "Ghetto Trash"?! You must be one miserable person because theres no way in the world you could be happy with everything in your life and then trun around and trash a 9 and 12 year old! You're the one that's ghetto trash

Oh Hell naw! Don't get scared and start apologizing. Damn, scary-ass. There will always be folks that disagree with you and unless you waitin' on the Smiths to hook you up with a book to movie deal STAND BY YOUR CONVICTIONS!!

Love TM or hate her, you have to respect that her books brought about a new emergence in the popularity of Black literature and for that, she will ALWAYS have my respect. I would love to model my career after that of her and Michael Baisden.

I don't think people understand/ know what ''pimpin'' your kids really means. Joe Jackson ''pimped'' his kids. Dina and Michael Lohan ''pimped'' their kids, Gary Colmans parents ''pimped'' him. Will and Jada don't fall into the ''pimp'' your kids group, Besides MOST child stars turn out just fine and I'm sure The Smith Kids will be fine too.

I wish someone would tell Jada that she is not cute. Always talking about her and Will's sex life like that's what's going to keep him there. By the way does anybody and I do mean anybody watch that Hawthorne mess? Jada really makes me sick. There's something about her that doesn't rub me the right way. I never really cared to much for her. And I'm willing to bet you Pac hit that boney puss a time or too.

i love terry (have read all her books@ least twice. she paints the black picture like no other. what i most respect about her she tells it like it t i is regardless of popular opinon or who dont like it. The truth is, the truth , let that set us free. i agree with her in this instance, black ppl in general need to raise our standards and look @ the bigger picture. The smith kids arent promotin anything postive( call me prude but whip my hair is too sexually charged) whats the rush? where is public demand? will @ jada r forcin these children down our throats to further push their gender- bending, " its okay to be gay" agenda . Educated responsible parents w/ working brains understand this, and speak out on such child abuse. Its sic, these children r not bein educated,with their resources and power , thats crazy as hell to me. I could maybe understand if we saw pics of a tutor between takes but NEVER. Knowledge is POWER!!!! Scripture says my people will perish from a lack of POWER. This is scary, because children r our FURTURE!!!!! I dont kno if any1 feel me on this but it more than " just entertainment" shit is real.We have lost a generation to homosexuality, prison , aids and the list goes on. Scripture also speaks on not bein able to differienciate male/ female,in our last days. Tell me jaden aint feminine and willow dont look like a butch most of the time. We're supposed to accept and support this just cuz were black? i call bullshit bullshit and the smiths r gettin shitter by the minute and ms. mcmillian said what open eyes see. on a side note: "Gettin to happy" get the thumbs up from me.Ill give a few spoilers. Bernies daughter onika, turn out to be a lesbian. Bernies 2nd hubby, james wheeler ( wesley snipes character)was a bigamist and endin stealin a large fraction
of her divorce settlement. Glorias son ends up a police officer, whose wife gloria cant stand( questions the dna of 1 of their sons) but deals with the situation cordially) Russell sorry ass end up in prison,and savannah divorces her husband over his porn addiction. good read.
