The “Fast and Furious” actor spoke with Larry King on the Emmy-nominated series “Larry King Now” in an interview where he not only called out mainstream radio for only playing white artists, he also expressed his “disgust” of Donald Trump and aired his grievance on the lack of diversity in Hollywood.

Ahead of the release of his R&B music video trilogy ‘The Black Book’, the actor/singer says mainstream radio only plays R&B if it’s by an artist like Sam Smith or Justin Timberlake.

“If Justin Timberlake, Sam Smith, or Robin Thicke were to sing R&B live specifically, they get played on all formats of radio…but as black artists, black R&B soul artists, we’re specifically being played on urban radio only.”

Tyrese, who has always been vocal about diversity in the film industry, also talked about the success of the action franchise “Fast and Furious” citing the film’s success to  multi-ethnic audience.

[2013 is probably one of the most successful years in black cinema,” says Tyrese Gibson]

“I think one of the biggest unspoken, but very spoken realities, is how when you go see this movie there’s somebody on camera that looks like you. There’s somebody that you can identify with. It’s a multiethnic experience.”

When asked about GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, he expressed his dislike for the politician saying;  “I don’t like him. I think he’s pretty disgusting. I just think he has mastered the art of winning battles and losing wars. So, everything is a gimmick. Everything are lies.” The actor even calls Trump’s campaign “the most narcissistic presidential campaign I’ve ever seen in my life.”
