While Y'all Were Passing Around Fake Taye Diggs Quotes About Black Women, Can We Talk About Terrance Howard Beating up Women?
When I saw this alleged quote from Taye Diggs, I thought to myself "Nobody is that stupid":
“Let’s just say its not a stereotype that black women are less submissive and harder to deal with. Being around all them black women made me really miss my wife” Stumbling out of a New York bar fresh off a world wind press tour in Los Angeles with wife Idina Menzel in tow Taye spoke briefly on the cast and breakaway success of ‘The Best Man Holiday’. Somebody will be upset and say i got rich and deserted my female people; No offense, but the only black woman I ever loved is my mama. – Taye Diggs This should come as no surprise as Mr. Diggs spoke briefly on his mother always knowing he’d marry a white girl on a radio talk show back in 2011."
Regarding the preposterous quote about black women: It is false. I have not and would never say such a thing. Ever. Period.— Taye Diggs (@TayeDiggs) November 24, 2013
This quote is from a satiracle website, but that didn't stop folks from running with this quote on Twitter. Diggs has denied making the statement.
You do realize that Morris Chesnut is the only Black male cast member i nthe Best Man holiday married to a Black woman, right? Taye, Terrance, and Harold are all married/were married to non-Black women. I could care less who they marry. Good luck to them! Black women you're being toyed with. Whoever made this quote up knew exactly what they were doing. Even before Diggs denied making the statement, I couldn't muster up any outrage - if he had made the statement, he'd be a loser whose opinion didn't matter to me.
If you wanted a legitimate reason NOT to go see the movie, how about the fact that Terrance Howard is a notorious woman beater. Check out The Six Times Terrance Howard Has Been Accused of Beating Up a Woman over at gawker.

We're divorced now and she should stay that way, and I just wish the best for her. But as far as me harming somebody, anybody that knows me, I really can't harm a fly, you know? It's completely against my spirit.
