In Gabby’s recently released memoir, “This Is Just My Face: Try Not to Stare” (buy your copy HERE), she is calling out some celebrities for fat shaming her. And by calling out, she is naming names. Radar Online reports Gabby called out Nick Cannon, better known as Mariah Carey’s ex-husband in her book for writing a script for her that made fun of her weight.
Gabourey Sidibe recently revealed she underwent weight loss surgery after she and her older brother were diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. Gabby looks great and you can check out Gabby’s slimmed down figure HERE.
In her memoir Gabby said
“The character was a plus-sized girl who is called ‘fat a**’ and ‘hippo,’”
Coincidentally the day after she read the script she had laproscopic bariatric surgery.
In the book, Gabby imagines that she’d:
“call Nick in a few days and have him remove those names…Boy, would he be pissed by the time we shot the movie.”
In Hollywood scripts are sent to people who may fit the idea of what is needed for a role. However, if Nick though Gabby, after having already made her mark in the acting wolrd with Precious, would still be okay with being called a “fat a**” and “hippo” he clearly doesn’t know Gabby. Our girl has paid her dues, and it’s high time folks let go of her weight and start appreciating Gabby for the actress she is.
