Listen, Gabourey Sidibe ain’t got time for nobody’s fat shaming. And we love her for it!
The actress’s star has continued to rise since she burst on the scene in Lee Daniels’ controversial 2009 film Precious. After playing the downtrodden teen, Sidibe has captivated audiences on the big and small screen in projects like The Big C, Yelling to the Sky, and most recently, American Horror Story: Coven.
While Gabby’s career continues to fly high, her critics, however, continue to take digs at the actress, particularly about her weight.
Last night during the Golden Globes, Sidibe hit the red carpet in a shimmery, floor-length, custom dress from Daniel Musto and Barefoot Tess heels. While the actress was apparently having the time of her life, Twitter lit up with nasty comments about Sidibe’s dress, and of course, her body.
The feisty actress wasn’t fazed, though. This morning, Sidibe tweeted the most awesome shut down to folks who had nasty things to say about her.
