Unfortunately, Gabourey Sidibe has dealt with her fair share of online haters. But the 34-year-old is refusing to let one troll get away with a truly disgusting comment. Watch the video below to see how the actress clapped back (in the nicest way possible!)
Gabby, who recently underwent weight loss surgery, previously spoke out about the negative comments she deals with on a daily basis. “You don’t get to talk about my body if you like it or not; it’s my body,” she said. “And yeah, I have been struggling with weight my entire life. I realize that as long as I have a body, it will be a struggle.”
But it’s not just strangers who spew hate. The Precious star revealed she once heard a powerful person in Hollywood say she was too overweight to appear on the cover of a magazine.
“It really devastated me,” she explained. “I guess I thought that going from literally nothing to the lead in the movie would show people that I wouldn’t be just fat anymore, or at least that’s not the first thing people would think of me, that I’m not too fat or too black or ghetto or nappy — that wouldn’t be part of my narrative anymore, but it was.” We’re on your side, Gabby!
