Gabrielle Union stirred up some hate while celebrating the sisterhood she’s built up around herself in Hollywood.
As a former Mean Girl, the Think Like A Man Too star knows the power of positive influences. On Woman Crush Wednesday she gave a special shout out to the ladies that have helped her to become a better woman.
“When ppl ask me how i learned to be a professional or how to navigate Hollywood and all it’s ups and downs,” Gabrielle stated in a post on Instagram earlier this week, “I always say I was lucky enough to have had guardian angel actresses.”
She thanked Regina King, Holly Robinson-Peete, Tichina Arnold and Tisha Campbell-Martin for always being there to “show me the way, to hold my hand, to be a partner in crime, and a giver of hope and discipline… they give love.”
Their support has been invaluable to Gabrielle in an industry where women are more likely to tear each other down than build one another up. “Nowadays some women seem to relish how much shade they can throw or who they can shun or getting off on watching ppl fail or flail,” Gabrielle wrote. “I’m forever grateful for these powerful dope women in my life showing me the way.”
One of Gabrielle’s critics took her last statements as just the opening they needed to serve up a big cup of judgement in the comments section!
