This is why I love me some Gabby! Our girl kept it all the way real when she responded to fat shamers who created memes to make fun of her after her hot and steamy love scene with her chocolate hotty “MC J Poppa” on Empire last week.
Over all Empire is not on the top of my list of shows to watch this season but I can appreciate a little ‘going outside of the norm’ when it comes to acting and portrayal of real life.
In case people were uncomfortable, it is quite normal for plus size women to get good loving from time to time. Of course while the world was making fun, Gabby made it known that she did not give a rats behind what anyone thought.
Read what the 32 yr old had to say in a blog post for Entertainment Weekly:
I, a plus sized, dark-skinned woman, had a love scene on prime time 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. I’m very proud of the work we all did to make that scene a great opening for the episode. I keep hearing that people are “hating” on it.
I’m not sure how anyone could hate on love but that’s okay. You may have your memes. Honestly, I’m at work too busy to check Twitter anyway. #Booked. Hope you enjoy next week’s show!
