Singer and actor Tyrese Gibson is criticizing the Biden administration for declaring Easter Sunday “Transgender Day of Visibility.”

The day is held annually on March 31, and celebrates the successes of transgender individuals.

This year’s celebration received additional attention after the White House issued a proclamation on March 29, saying the Biden administration honors the “extraordinary courage and contributions of transgender Americans,” adding, “Transgender Americans are part of the fabric of our Nation.”

In a lengthy post on Instagram Sunday, Tyrese — who is known for his roles in the Transformers films and The Fast and the Furious franchise —  said he was disappointed by the administration’s action.

“President Joe I really really hate to put up this post sir…… This is a REACH…… I swear man y’all are just really really really taking things too far,” Tyrese wrote. “Whoever you met with in your board room and signed off on this failed political chess move really really needs to be fired… I am always uber sensitive about people walking and living in third [sic] truth so there’s no problem here.”

He added, “If you are happy with your gender and wanna switch it up based on who you identify with… That’s your life, do what makes you happy!!…… I say this and speak for every Christian and believer around the WORLD, the LORD JESUS CHRIST IS MY LORD AND SAVIOR and HE is the the reigning ALPHA and the OMEGA …. JESUS CHRIST!!”

Tyrese quoted Revelation 1:8 and suggested Biden read the Bible himself.

“Pick up your Bible Mr. President. Jesus don’t do politics…. Jesus is not a Democrat or Republican, Jesus is not to be used for political agendas or gains,” Tyrese continued. “This was a reach President Joe and I think we all deserve an apology.”

Some Republican leaders, including House speaker Mike Johnson, also called out the administration for its proclamation.

“The Biden White House has betrayed the central tenet of Easter — which is the resurrection of Jesus Christ,” Johnson wrote on X. “Banning sacred truth and tradition — while at the same time proclaiming Easter Sunday as ‘Transgender Day’ — is outrageous and abhorrent. The American people are taking note.”

LGBTQ rights organization GLAAD questioned the controversy.

“Fact Check: Easter changes dates each year and Trans Day of Visibility always falls on March 31. Anyone who says anything different is sadly overshadowing the hope and joy that Easter represents,” the organization wrote Sunday in a statement on X.
