i thought tyler lepley was one of the sexiest wolves on “have and have nots“.
when that show first started,
he was one of the many reasons tuned in to watch his character “benny”.
as his career grew,
he turned into a real snack over the years:

i remember writing something about him in the past and he ended up blocking me.
the article was about was seeing someone who looked like him on the train one day.
won’t lie to you,
but i moved tf on and found many other wolves to lust after.
i heard through the foxhole that he wasn’t comfortable with male attention.
he allegedly blocked many other males from supporting him.
so when he had this interview on the podcast “lip service” via “rolling out“…
“I remember when I first started out, I was seeing [rumors of being gay] here and there. For whatever reason, people were associating it with my first show. I came out on a Tyler Perry show and for whatever reason, he gets a rap like that, and I know Tyler [Perry] personally and he’s not gay. I was seen around him and all of a sudden ‘he’s rubbing off on me’ and people felt like I was gay or something like that.”
Lepley said he is currently in a committed relationship, but spurned Yee’s plea to identify the mystery woman. He didn’t seem overly concerned with people’s perception of his masculinity.
“I had done something while I was on the set of ‘P-Valley.’ Maybe I was with Clifford or I think I was taking a picture with Alphonse who plays Little Murda, and people started off with the gay thing again. I think if you have a space that people can’t figure out, they can just create a judgment.”
i think it was this pic:
…which i was shocked he took a picture with uncle clifford.
so i have thoughts and i’ll start with ty first.
there are other actors with gay rumors swirling around them,
but they don’t address or give it any energy.
it comes with the job tbh.
tyler lepley is out here blocking males for commenting that he is attractive.
i can understand disrespectful shit like nudes and aggressive sexuality in dms getting blocked,
but he seems extremely bothered for no reason at all.
being bothered and keeping the vixen he is dating a mystery,
it’s a no brainer that folks wonder what his story is.
Can we blame him tho?
some black folks are cruel and will label you something you aren’t.
i can see why he would feel a certain way if people kept assuming he was gay.
black straight males in entertainment don’t have the luxury that white males have.
black straight males will be typecasted as “gay” for wearing a pink shirt.
it doesn’t help when some gay males do this as well.
we should already know how that feels and be more emphatic,
but some gays are double agents with the straights so…
i need tyler lepley to get it together tho.
if you are gonna assume the role of sex symbol,
that is a role that gets admired by vixens and the gay community.
if you don’t want the responsibility,
lowkey: ty lepley is very interesting on his social media.
you can tell he is “a rapper” by his posts.
