Terry Crews Clarifies His Stance on Bathing, Says He's Being Misrepresented

Terry Crews is speaking out to clarify his stance on bathing after he says a journalist “misrepresented” his recent comments.

The 53-year-old America’s Got Talent host recently said that he showers up to three times a day sometimes because he sweats so much during the day.

He added, “First of all, if you ain’t been sweating, you don’t need to shower. But I spend all day sweating, all the time, running and working out, and it ain’t nice. My wife is like, ‘Babe, babe, babe.’ I’m Mr. Old Spice, you know what I mean? So I’ve got to get clean.”

Journalist Richard Newby tweeted an article with Terry‘s comments and said, “I am 110% not surprised that every celebrity to come out as anti-bathing has been either white or Terry Crews.”

Terry responded and said, “But I am 110% surprised that you’re a ‘writer’ who actually never read the article…”

Richard replied, “But the thing is, I did, Terry. I’m glad you shower, man. That’s great. But the whole ‘First of all, if you ain’t been sweating, you don’t need to shower,’ fits under anti-bathing.”

Terry responded, “Ok Mr. Writer… who alive doesn’t sweat?”

A fan replied to Richard and said, “Why do celebs come after you like that?” The writer responded, “Lol. I don’t care at all. If he wants to get defensive about the dumb thing he said about showering that’s on him.”

Terry responded to that comment and said, “I’m not defensive at all. You’re the award winning writer for @THR. I’m just an actor. I clearly stated I am not anti-bathing yet you contend that’s what I meant. So you have no responsibility to be correct when you tweet?”

A fan responded to Terry and said, “The media hardly represents people fairly these days, and much less comes at topics in good faith. Journos have forgotten to minimize harm, and are too indignant to admit wrongdoing.”

Terry replied to that fan and said, “This is definitely the case here. I don’t mind being disagreed with— but it’s quite another thing to be misrepresented. Especially by a respected member of the media.”

If you forgot, this whole bathing debate started when this A-list couple revealed that they don’t bathe their children regularly.
