Gabourey Sidibe Blasts Twitter Critics Over Her Weight And Dress At The Golden Globes
Gabourey Sidibe fires back to twitter haters, who insulted her weight and Golden Globes dress, and is clearly not bothered by the mean-spirited comments.
Although Gabourey Sidibe wasn't nominated for any Golden Globe award at last Sunday's ceremony (Jan 12th), she still garnered a lot of attention.
The 30 year-old fell victim to internet-bullying after twitter users targeted her weight and dress in mean-spirited jibes.
The 'Precious' actress stepped onto the red carpet wearing a cream coloured gown designed by her own stylist, Daniel Musto, with fashion designer Michael Costello Couture, E!News reports.
"She looks like a condom," one user wrote.
"Geez! She looks like the chubby ghost from Casper," read another cruel comment.
Thankfully Sidibe was able to take the hater comments light-heartedly and responded in a hilarious 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 posted.
After posting this tweet the actress received a wave of complements and supportive messages.

This led her to post another tweet, "Yay! Everyone is so wonderful and supportive of my shade! This might be a problem down the line. Thank you! #notmyjetthough #imnotthatfancy."
It seems that the 'American Horror Story: Coven' is quite the entertaining tweeter, before the ceremony even began Sidibe revealed, to her followers, her journey to the A-list event.
"My doll @t_farmiga has the best face! She looks like a dead baby. She knows what I mean! #GoldenGIobes" she wrote of her co-star Taissa Farmiga, along with a pic of the pair in a car.
Before the night was over, Gabourey found time to post one last comical tweet which read, "My underwear hurts..... Need more booze. Send help! #GoldenGIobes".
Despite getting a lot of undeserved criticism, the BAFTA nominated actress seemed to enjoy the night festivities.
