Gabourey Sidibe is clapping back on haters.
On Wednesday, we watched as Sidibe’s character on Empire, Becky, bared it all in a sexy love scene with boyfriend MC J Poppa.
Not a second after the scene ended, the Internet was a blaze. Fans of the show dragged the 32-year-old actress with a slew of hateful tweets and memes.
Gabby, who has never been afraid to speak out against her critics, responded in a blog post she wrote for EW on Thursday.
“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.”
She went on to say, “You may have your memes. Honestly, I’m at work too busy to check Twitter anyway. #Booked.”
Well said Gabby!
