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. IÃ¢â¬â¢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 Ã¢â¬ÅhatingÃ¢â¬Â on it. IÃ¢â¬â¢m not sure how anyone could hate on love but thatÃ¢â¬â¢s okay. You may have your memes. Honestly, IÃ¢â¬â¢m at work too busy to check Twitter anyway. #Booked. Hope you enjoy next weekÃ¢â¬â¢s show!
Hater’s gonna hate, hate, hate!
