Boris Kodjoe Goes Off About Obese Black Women

admin Aug 17 11 21 Comments

Boris Kodjoe is loved by women all over the world but those feelings may have changed since his twitter rant about over weight Black women. It all started out with a simple tweet talking about he had a dream about 300 pound women eating chicken wings and grinding on him. Shortly after that tweet he tried to come back and sugar coat things talking about he loves all women (I’m just guessing not the ones who are 300 pounds and eat chicken wings) despite their color, hair type, height, etc. Things got heated when people started tweeted crazy stuff to him and he then defended himself with statistics (good  move Boris!) and positive retweets from fans. He even stepped on a few feet with tweets like this one:

Hmmph! Looks like Boris didn’t care about hurting any feelings and wanted to get his overall message across about how being healthy is beautiful. What do you think of his rant about obesity? Do you think it’s high time somebody said something about it? How about his approach on the subject of obesity?

    he’s telling the truth. we have to wake up. it wasn’t a bias as much as it is a truth- no sugar coating (no pun intended).

    First of all I’m highly offended. I’m a black woman who has diabetes and who weigh 180 pounds and doctors consider me over weight. However, I did not get diabetes because I’m over weight I got diabetes because of a lung disease that requires me to take steroids 60mg daily in order to live. For those of you who don’t know like Boris steriod make you look like a bloated fish. If I do not take my steroids I would not be here to tell my story. I would rather be overwieght and have diabetes than be in a grave any day. For Boris to make an uneducated assumption that all black people have diabetes because of poor dieting is just ingnorant. What excuse do he have for juvenel diabetes? There are a lot of reasons why the body can stop producing insulin the government just want to make society believe its just from poor dieting….so not true!

    i feel mr.kodjoe should concentrate more on his sick daughter than insult women,, i am on steroids for a muscle disease.. as well as thyroids problems thats where my weight comes from,,, because of muscle disease limits my physical activities. it’s a challenge to keep weight stable.. i was a dancer thats how i keep weight down..i’ve accepted my illness and the needs for steroids in my life… how would he like if someone posted comments about his thin wife not taking the right supplements like folic acid during pregnancy… something so simple she could of done and she didn’t which ultimately led to his daughter’s illness spina bifida… a life long illness.

  6. Jackie47 says:

    I like what he said – about the pork chops – to the ones on steroids – you have medical reasons to be big. The rest of us don’t have an excuse. Yes it is about time somebody said something about weight among us black women. We just love to eat and we the wrong thing and to much of it . So don’t get mad with the man for telling the truth because we all know the truth hurts.

  7. Jackie47 says:

    @Missthang84 – See that is what happen when a person can’t stand the truth – his wife and child didnt make the statement – but when a person can’t stand the truth the attack where they think would hurt that person. His dream makes sense to him. But let say you are me had a dream about a 300 pound man and chicken would you wake up please – not me. A 300 pound man grinding on me eating chicken would scare the hell out of me.

    He must want some fatty phat kitty kat and chicken wings ,if he dreaming about it…That doesn’t even sound like a legitimate dream…sounds like he just wanna clown the biggrrls…but that’s cool, cuz one monkey certainly don’t spoil the show.

    You still fine, BoKoJo…just remember…once your go fat, you’ll dream about that :)

    I wish black men would conduct “real research” before making stupid statements like this. My cousin is on steriods and she is now 300 pounds. As a result of surgery to remove a brain tumor, she had to go on steriods to decrease the brain swelling and gained over 100 pounds. She now fits into that mold of a 300 pound over weight women with diabetes.

    My manager has a rare form of thyroid disease so she put on allot of weight, which caused her to have diabetes.

    Some medical conditions people can’t control so to make a statement like that is wrong. I’m sure some people are just eating too much and not exercising but there are women who have medical conditions that require medication that causes weighter gain and results in diabetes and I know for a fact both women feel horrible about the weight and this statement doesn’t make them feel any better about themselves.

    I’m sure the comment was only meant for those that eat obsessively and are obese/ heavy weight because of it. It was not meant for
    Those w health issues that lead to bein over weight. Everyone should read it for what it was and not digging deeper. Lastly he does not have to be attracted to overweight women black, white and in-between. Get a grip people!

  11. Not a dummy says:

    Some people are so ridiculous. Steroids don’t make you gain 200 pounds, or 100 pounds, or even 50 pounds without you helping it along. Weight can can ALWAYS be controlled via diet. Taking steroids increases the difficulty of that task because it has an effect on appetite, but it is still something that can be done. The steroids didn’t make you fat, it made you hungry and made your body store more fat. You made yourself fat by eating awful foods in response to that increase in appetite.

    thank you Boris K. …you speak the truth.SIR..when i read your great artical…i sent my daughter the article,this daughter went though a nasity seperation- with her husband that lead to D. she claims that this situation put 50 lb on her..Now this daughter is a baby-doctor- a specialist- who lives in Florida. that may have led her to eat needlessly,however: it is three years later and my once beautiful great shape…5/4 daughter is still overweight.

    no more excuses for her being weight. she started now to work out. THANK YOU SIR,I EVEN LOST 16LB. I LIVE IN OHIO.

  13. glory maria says:

    10 pounds over weight, maybe..however,i see the same thing you do. you are right on time. your beautifull wife motovated my daughter to start losing weight. I have the same thing as Nicky,low blood. No one else tells black women the truth..SO SIR, THANK YOU,THANK YOU,THANK YOU SIR,YOU JUST SAVED MANY LIVES FOR FACTING. i THINK YOU HAVE A BEATIFUL FAMILY,BEATIFUL CHILDREN. BLESS YOU

  14. Centino says:

    Everything the man said was right on point. Of course he tried to “sugar coat” and backtrack because he’s a public figure and has to rely on the public for his income. But he said what he meant the first time. Anyone who thinks women weighing 200 and 300 lbs is ok is sick in the brain.

  15. Jelina says:

    People really need to lay off the ridiculous excuses. Even if some medical condition or steroids do make a person fat, what percentage of obese people can really claim that? Less than 1%?

    Come on. The vast majority of obese people gained their weight the old fashioned way. They earned it by being lazy, refusing to be active and being greedy. This is not rocket science.

  16. Why is it ok to make these insensitive comments about obese people and obesity which is a learned behavior often shared within a family..? The statement above is contradictory. Usually these illnesses due run in a family right along with the poor eating habits.

    He may as well tell parents all across America they are bad parents for raising their children with unhealthy eating habits.

  17. glory maria says:

    THE PERSON THAT SAID HER OR RALATIVE GAIN 100,SINCE SHE HAS BEEN ON STEROIDS,IS TELLING THE TRUTH. iN1997,I was hit with a disease called sarcoidosis (lung disease) that sideline me for months,i was put on PREDISONE …the fat pill,yes..it do put weight on one if you don’t warch what you eat closely..EXAMPLE : I WEIGHTED 145 IN 1997 WHEN I BECAME ILL WITH MY LUNGS,AFTER i WAS TESTED ,THE ONLY THING THAT COATED MY LUNGS WAS THAT PILL …MG…60…40…AND ON DOWN UNTIL A MONTH . i STILL AM ON THEM,WHEN THIS HAPPENS I EAT A VERY LOW FAT DIET…I DID LOSE THE WEIGHT (205 I GAIN IN 1997) I EXERSIZE DAILY FOR 60 MINUTES-5 DAYS A WEEK..i DID LOSE IT,ONLY THAT PILL PUT ANOTHER 15 LB ON ME EVERYTIME I HAVE TO TAKE IT.

  18. missmeen says:

    I agree with Boris!
    3 words: PROPER DIET & EXERCISE!!!
    Stop making excuses! If your able bodied, why not exercise?
    And if your in your right mind why not educate yourself about healthy foods for a proper diet?
    I’m just saying!!

  19. Cindy says:

    I agree with Boris even though he should have left out the dream. That was immature, but it could have been a premonition. Maybe his dream was telling him that way too many of us black women are overweight/obese and need to lose it fast. If you go to Walmart and look at the black women and girls, you will notice that 4 out of 5 of them are overweight or obese. It’s embarrassing and ridiculous. How could we have let ourselves go like this. Just to let you know, I’m healthy. I am 5’2 and 108 pounds. I was raised by a health conscious family. We eat tons of fruit, veggies, granola, and fiber. We black women already get bullshit. We need to get our act together. Start exercising and lay off the junk food. It’s not good for you. Even if you do get your hair done and nails done, what difference does it make if you are fat and obese. People won’t care about your hair and nails if they see you not caring about what you put in your mouth. Some people say this is the reason black man go towards white women or women of other races. Black men are tired of coming home to a obese black women. I’m not saying it’s true, but it does make sense. Who would want to be with an obese person who doesn’t care about himself. So let this be a final warning and get on the treadmill and eat more healthy foods.

    I have heard enough of this! First of all is nobody’s business who fat or not. Or what people eat. If I’m fat my f.. business. What’s it to u? Boris needs to shut his mouth n mind his own business. He needs to get off his high horse cause he is not all that! People judge to much. If some fat women and men wanted to loose weight there are many things and programs out there available. So u judgemental peeps keep your opinions to yourselves. We didn’t ask for it. Opinions are like a..holes everyone has one. Fat black women. Has been picked on numerous times. Boris is not the first one to try this crap and wont be the last. People always want to stick their nose in other people’s business. They never learn! Its a free country! U eat what u want I eat what I want. My health is my concern nobody else’s!

  21. heard enough says:

    Its not all about black men tired. Coming home to fat black women. God! What an excuse u trying to make for black men’s actions. If some of them go to white or women of other race that’s because they think they are moving up its a heck of a lot of fat whites out there too! That the black man run to! So saying that That’s a reason why black men leave fat black women! Black men leave beautiful thin healthy women too! Black men is another subject all together! I am a happy fat and a very active and healthy one. I’m HAPPY married and my husband is thin and he never complain. He tells me every day he loves me and our sex life is great ! And he is black! My best friend is married to a foreign man he’s thin she’s very fat. The are HAPPY too. So live your life and stop speaking for everybody else whom u don’t no.
