Now you know here at FFG we’re all about supporting amazing talent and phenomenal people, and we always try to keep things here positive and upbeat. Keeping that in mind, we had a hard time holding our tongues last night on social media as we watched the abuse come in from all angles concerning Gabourey Sidibe at the Golden Globes. We just happen to be huge supporters of Miss Gabourey Sidibe.
However, last night, with each refresh of twitter, we were confronted with more and more comments about Gabourey Sidibe and her red carpet look. To say these were “haters,” would be kind. These were true internet trolls, hiding behind their computers and shouting out at a young talent from a safe distance. And what were they shouting about? Well, let’s just say if you can imagine it, it was probably written. Do we need to remind the world that most celebs read their twitter accounts? Every single thing you say, good or bad, is read and taken in to be processed. While we probably would have fallen to the ground into a puddle of misery under such a deluge of negativity, Gabourey Sibide reminded us all of exactly the reason we love her so. She responded to her haters with a tweet that shall go down in hater history:
“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”
Need we say more? GS, let haters, hate. You are uber-fabulous.
