Eric Benét laser out at his followers for dragging his aging looks. The 53-year-old R&B singer took offense to fans mentioning how old he looks.
It all started when Eric shared a video of himself and R&B songstress Tamia sining their smash hit duet "Spend My Life with You."
Observant social media users focused on how old he looked with his salt and pepper whiskers.
Back in the day, Eric was a strikingly handsome young man who had his pick of beautiful women. His feelings were clearly hurt when his younger fans expected him to age a bit more gracefully.
He addressed the issue on Twitter:
"After my last post, I'm getting a lotta 'Damn what happened to Eric Benét?' comments. Im like 30 years happened nucca!! Lemmie see what yo' soda drinking, chicken McNugget eatin' ass look like at 53yrs old!"
