Gabrielle Union is showing support to Demetria Obilor, the Dallas traffic reporter who side-stepped an attempt by a viewer to body-shame her last week.
Deeming Obilor “the real life Mary Jane,” after the TV anchor character Union plays on her BET show, Union also encouraged the young reporter to keep being who she is.
“YOU are the real life Mary Jane…” Union wrote in an Instagram message. “A go-getter news anchor who dresses DOPE and doesn’t give a s*** what everyone else thinks.”
She added: “Keep on kicking ass and taking names queen. We love you just the way you are!”
But that wasn’t all! Union also promised to send Obilor clothing from her New York and Company collection!
We love the sisterhood and support!
