Don’t be hatin’ on Gabourey Sidibe because she got a love scene on the hit show “Empire”. To her we say, YOU GO GIRL!
Gabourey plays the blonde character Becky Williams on the show and since she’s a plus-sized woman, the world is freaking out that she got a love scene on network television.
She said that she had a good time filming the scene, but knows that it’s more than just that. She said, “I’m the first person who looks like myself who has been in a love scene on primetime television.”
She said in a posting for Entertainment Weekly:
I, a plus sized, dark-skinned woman, had a love scene on primetime 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!
Hater’s gonna hate, hate, hate!
