Gabourey Sidibe Calls out Nick Cannon

Gabourey Sidibe went under the knife to lose weight not too long after Nick Cannon sent her a really disrespectful script.

Radar Online writes:

The Empire actress, who slammed former Vogue editor Andre Leon Talley for calling her a “fat b***h,” also claimed Nick Cannon wrote an offensive script for her that poked fun at her weight.

“The character was a plus-sized girl who is called ‘fat a**’ and ‘hippo,’” she said in her new memoir, This Is Just My Face. “I thought how glad I’d be when my body was no longer mentioned in script ideas for me. ‘My body is not a character description.’ My good friend Amber Riley once said that.”

The very day after she read the script, Sidibe, 34, underwent weight loss surgery.

  1. A lot of ppl/comedians have made fun of her weight not just Nick Cannon. I’m sure her surgery was already schedule because you have to go thru a series of test and health evaluations to determine if she is even healthy enough to have the surgery… Her motivation should have been to live a healthier life – not b/c of shade/insults because even with the weight loss – ppl will still have their jokes….
