Gabourey Sibide is comfortable in her own skin and she isn’t letting mean-spirited comments steal her joy.
Last night, the 30-year-old actress attended the Golden Globes in a custom champagne Michael Costello gown. The “American Horror Story” star wore the dress with confidence but many fans in the social media world disapproved of the look.
After her Twitter mentions filled with cruel comments about her weight and health, Gabourey decided to clap back with a few words of her own.
“To people making mean comments about my GG pics, I mos def cried about it on that private jet on my way to my dream job last night,” she wrote, most likely in a snarky way. She added, hashtag “JK.”
In a 2012 interview at the Women in Entertainment symposium, the Precious actress opened up about her weight issues and journey to find self confidence.
“I didn’t really get to grow up hearing that I was beautiful a lot, or that I was worth anything nor did I grow up seeing myself on TV,” she said. “Then at some point when I was 21 or 22 I just decided that life wasn’t worth living if I wasn’t happy with myself so I just took all the steps that I could to figure out how to love myself and become confident. Truthfully speaking if I hadn’t found this person before that movie [Precious] I wouldn’t have even be in that movie.”
Haters gonna hate. Gabby you stay fly!
