Tyrese sleeps with the heat on 90 every night, believes it keeps covid away

Tyrese Gibson decided to dole out some medical advice to fans on how to avoid getting COVID. Tyrese, who stars alongside Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson in The Fast and The Furious franchise, said he’s remained “COVID free” because he sleeps in 90 degree heat every night and has been doing so for 15 years. And because he’s heard a rumor that COVID doesn’t survive in warm temperatures, this must be why he hasn’t gotten it. So he spread the word to his 13.4M Instagram followers. Only Tyrese is a model turned actor with no medical training or license. And his advice was terrible with no scientific merit and could prove fatal to anyone who followed it. Plus, it sounds terribly uncomfortable and would mess up most people’s sleep patterns.

However, if you read Tyrese’s whole IG caption, clearly there is much more than just horrible medical advice here:

Random shit I think of on flights…

One of my secrets for staying COVID free is I sleep with the heat on 90 degrees every night lol ….Been sleeping at this temp for 15 years so it’s nothing new….. But….. Rumor has it if you catch Covid it doesn’t survive warm temperatures? …..Another random thought is people are not loyal to you… They are loyal to what they want FROM you…. It’s ok to be cool with people who you clearly see and KNOW they want something…. As long as you are CLEAR about their CLEAR intentions….. Just know… Soon as they don’t get what they want…. They will disappear faster than you can blink…. And just leave you standing there confused, shook and feeling like wtf just happened…… I’m a self professed alpha empath….. My alpha will turn fragile insecure people away… When that happens it makes me happy cause I have one less person to love and care for…..

There has been much discussion of temperature and the spread of COVID. External temperature has no effect on the spread of COVID. In warmer weather people tend to be outside more which lessens the spread of any virus. So don’t cook yourselves at night to not get COVID. Wear a mask, social distance, wipe down surfaces, wash your hands, follow your area’s Stay At Home guidelines, listen to healthcare workers, don’t go out if you are sick – that’s how you avoid COVID. Many fans called Tyrese out – both teasing him about boiling his brain in that kind of bedroom temperature and more serious in the dangers of spreading this kind of misinformation. And they should. When somebody has a platform like this, they really shouldn’t throw random theories out there that could hurt people. In Tyrese’s defense, he’s fine wearing a face mask, he even made a tepid argument for wearing them. He is, however, against the vaccine.

When you read the rest of his caption, though, it’s pretty clear this missive should be titled “Xanax induced sh*t I think of on flights… “ Hey, I’m not a huge fan of flying either, we all do what we can. But this is part of the reason it’s best just to shut the phone off during the flight, folks. Especially now that I must devote my life to researching alpha empaths and how they can be used to my advantage.

    Yeah, I knew he was dumb.

    • Esmom says:

      This is next level dumb. Holy hell.

      • Liz says:

        A friend of mine worked with him 15-20 years ago and confided that he was the dumbest person he had ever met. Like incomprehensibly dumb. He said he couldn’t understand basic things and seemed to have the cognition of a very small child. So this doesn’t surprise me, nor does him having millions of followers. It’s the world we live in….

      • Amy Too says:

        It lives in peoples bodies! Which are 98.6 degrees! Your body produces a fever when you’re sick, and it can STILL survive in the 100+ degree temps. How does he think this makes any sense!? If covid could put out a personal ad it would ASK for 90+ degree temperatures!

  2. Chaine says:

    The bar has been set so low that my initial reaction was “at least he believes COVID is real.”

  3. STRIPE says:

    This is a superficial comment I admit but…how the heck does someone even sleep when it’s 90 degrees?!? The colder the better for me!

    • Rachel says:

      That’s exactly what I thought. 90 wowza! Imagine how stuffed up he must be every morning while sleeping in that heat. Sounds like torture to me lol

    • Swack says:

      @stripe – with you there. I keep mine at 65 at night. Ninety degrees and I’d be sweating like no one’s business.

    • emu says:

      same. I would not be able to sleep at 90 degrees. It would be so unbearable

  4. Darla says:

    omg my best friend just moved in with me, and she is always cold. i ordered a portable heater for her to put in her bedroom. she’s not keeping me up nights with that heat, i can tell you that and i made it quite clear. my whole head stuffs up and i feel like i’m on fire.

    His story sounds like her. I once walked into her hotel room (we had rooms next to each other), and it was 87 degrees and i started screaming WTF is going on? I thought I walked into a sauna. And now she is in a tough spot till she gets called back to her job in Manhattan, so I told her to move in here, but the temperature was the one thing I was really worried about. I cannot sleep or even exist, even naked, in that high temp. This is crazy to me.

    • Swack says:

      My daughter and grandkiddos live with me right now and they all have their own heater in their bedroom. Except the oldest – he likes it cold in his room and sometimes has the window open.

    • Meghan says:

      I was on the Sales team for a new hotel opening and we had to work out of guest rooms for a little bit. The heat wouldn’t stay on for very long and I am basically freezing ALL the time so I had my room set on like 90. My GM freaked out then just stopped coming to my “office.”

      In my for real office, which of course I havent seen since March, I do have a space heater but I wasn’t lugging that around every day while we were opening.

    *not admitted*

    Tyrese’s sheets also smell like earring backs and hot feet.

  6. emmy says:

    That’s… not how it works. That’s not how any of it works. I’m tired. Wear a mask, distance, stay home if you can. I just don’t know anymore with people.

  7. Josie Bean says:

    And if everyone turned the heat up to 90 degrees what would that do for the environment ??? How much energy would that consume????? How very selfish and irresponsible. Surely investing in a warm blanket would keep one comfortable.

  8. Sojaschnitzel says:

    Pretty sure that it’s not “his alpha” (whatever _that_ is) that’s making people walk away

  9. Moxie Remon says:

    Ha! – from a Brazilian :)

  10. lucy2 says:

    Yes, that’s why Covid disappeared all summer…oh wait. No to mention inside the human body is more than 90 degrees…oof such a stupid thing to say.

    He’s probably going to be against the vaccine until he can’t get hired on a film set without it.

    Also, anything above 70 and I’m too warm to sleep. 90 would be horrible.

    • ME says:

      I wonder how many people will pay for fake “paperwork” saying they got the vaccine, when they really didn’t.

      Also, Tyrese does know countries with a hot climate also had Covid outbreaks right? Moron.

  11. Lila says:

    Sorry Tyrese, there is no such thing as MEDICAL advice that starts with the phrase “Rumor has it.”

    Although I guess at this point we should be grateful Tyrese didn’t hear the rumor your should be swallowing lightbulbs or injecting bleach.

  12. Claire says:

    Sounds expensive & polluting…. 90? It’s December!
