“Nobody said that, in this day and age,” Winfrey said in disbelief to TMZ after being informed of T.I.’s comments. “Well, you know what I say to that… I want to say, ‘Honey child, hush your mouth. You don’t know what you’re talking about.’ That’s what I would say… I don’t buy it, you know, it’s not true. I think people just like to talk.”
“He just lives in the old ‘man takes care of woman,’ chivalry-type-thing,” she said before later adding. “He might’ve been thinking about me at the time.” – Tiny
T.I. took to Twitter after his statements to apologize “unequivocally insensitive and wrong”. His wife, Tiny, also added her two cents on the matter as she was leaving Los Angeles International Airport on Tuesday.
