And the award for an epic response to critics goes to Gabourey Sidibe. In one tweet Gabby silenced and verbally assassinated all of her critics who bashed her Golden Globe look.
The “American Horror Story: Coven” actress was nominated for a Golden Globe last night, but her dress was all anyone could talk about. Sidibe rocked a gold custom made Michael Costello gown with a front split. She paired the short sleeved dress with only a ring and striped clutch. The 30-year-old actress opted for a gold pump.
Comments on her dress, weight and overall look quickly gained traction. As the critics' comments grew meaner and more vile, more memes were created. Well, Gabby saw the shenanigans and had only one thing to say, rather tweet.
“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. #JK,” she tweeted.
Gabby shut the haters down in the most boss way by reminding them while they’re busy slandering her she’s on a private jet to her dream job. She won!
We love Gabby and think the fat-shaming was absolutely cruel. However, this particular Michael Costello dress was not flattering. Diddy’s girlfriend Cassie also rocked a Costello number and she slayed. We’re left wondering what the heck happened with Sidibe.
Everyone is not a size two or four. In fact, majority of women are not. Hollywood’s beautiful plus-sized women—Queen Latifah, Octavia Spencer—have always managed to get it right. Gabby’s dress didn’t fit her body type well. She could’ve stunned in a gown less form fitting and a different fabric. Did Gabby's stylist not intervene with better options?
Either way, we live for Sidibe’s response. And that’s why she wins.
