Gabourey Sidibe Fires Back at Haters
She’s an Academy Award-nominated actress and a regular on one of the biggest shows on the world, but even Gabourey Sidibe isn’t immune to attacks from the internet. Users of the social media site Twitter have viciously attacked Sidibe, 32, for a love scene that she performed on the Fox drama Empire, criticising her weight.
Sidibe’s character Becky, the assistant to the main character, enjoyed a romantic liaison with rapper MC J Poppa, portrayed by actor Mo McRae, 33.
In a blog regarding the episode for Entertainment Weekly, Sidibe fired back at the Twitter critics saying ‘I felt sexy and beautiful and like I was doing a good job.’
