Gabourey Sidibe Hits Back at Body Shamers

The last weeks episode of Empire on Fox opened with a love scene between Gabourey Sidibe’s character Becky and her boyfriend rapper J Poppa.

Gabourey addresses the onslaught of fat-shamers following her performance.

In a blog for Entertainment Weekly! Gabourey writes,

I, a plus sized, dark-skinned woman, had a love scene on primetime television. I had the most fun ever filming that scene even though I was nervous. But I felt sexy and beautiful and I felt like I was doing a good job. I’m very proud of the work we all did to make that scene a great opening for the episode. I keep hearing that people are “hating” on it. I’m not sure how anyone could hate on love but that’s okay. You may have your memes. Honestly, I’m at work too busy to check Twitter anyway. #Booked. Hope you enjoy next week’s show!
