Gabourey Sidibe Responds to Weight Critics, Owns Haters with Single Tweet

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Haters, you better recognize: Gabourey Sidibe is totally awesome.

Following her red carpet appearance at Sunday's Golden Globes, some morons took to Twitter and took issue with how the actress looked in her Michael Costello dress.

But did the former Oscar nominee and American Horror Story star let the weight bigots get to her? Of course not.

She brushed them away with the early favorite for Comeback Tweet of the Year.

"To people making mean comments about my GG pics," Sidibe wrote. "I mos def cried about it on that private jet on my way to my dream job last night. #JK"

And THAT, people, is how you shut up the critics in fewer than 140 characters.

Game. Set. Match, Gabourey Sidibe.

The actress has talent beyond her Twitter typing and quick wit, too, of course. Watch American Horror Story online right now to see what we mean.


God has a plan for all of us. If it is your time rather fat or skinny short or tall then it's your time. Who are you to say she is going to die being fat. Bigots out there say that about Gays, Interracial marriages, anorexic people. Tomorrow is not promised, Today is a blessing,Yesterday is the past.
Leave her alone


Good Girl. This is her life. Let her do and say what she wants. There are a lot of skinny celebrities that has died young. If you are not paying for anything in her life than


She should do what Jennifer Hudson did, win an oscar for being overweight then getting paid lots if money to get thin. Should work again.


For her own sake she should lose some weight. I am sure she can afford the best doctors, trainers and diets. She is a good actress but only certain roles will be coming to her and snide and nasty remarks will remain. But as far as her outfit goes, I don't think there were too many nice outfits at the Golden Globes at all..Heavy or Thin, most of the woman looked awful....


I have no problem with her weight. If she wants to die young, that's her business. What I do have a problem with is her uneducated way of speaking. 'Mos def crying'........What in the hell does that mean???

You honestly don't know what she means? Come on! Proofreading is part of my job and I can be a tedious pedant too, but online you have to cut people some slack to express themselves freely, Often you are restricted to a certain number of characters so different protocols have developed. To some extent, you make your own rules up; the important thing is to get your message across. Besides, many who go online are not from the well-educated privileged classes. The last thing we should do is shame less privileged people off with pedantry.


I wouldn't call that a successful comeback. The truth is, that was a horrendous outfit choice. The color? The cut? She's never looked heavier.


It's all well and good but haters may get the last laugh as the morbidly obese don't often live to old age. And it often isn't a fun journey either.
