Gabourey Sidibe hits back at sex scene fat-shamers: 'I'm sexy and beautiful'
The year-old, most famous actress her Oscar-nominated role in Precious, currently stars as Becky on the hit series Empire. In the show's most recent episode, Gabourey opened the show with a sex scene on a balcony, and live-blogged the show hilariously.
Writing for Entertainment Weekly, Sidibe said: Good for that fine ass Becky. A cruel meme began to circulate of a picture of Gabourey's scene with the caption: Gabourey wrote: I, a plus sized, dark-skinned woman, had a naked scene on primetime television.
I had the most fun ever filming that scene even though I was nervous. Precious Canadian showgirls felt sexy and beautiful and I felt like I was doing a good job.
I keep hearing that people are 'hating' on it.
