Gabourey Sidibe is not holding back.
The actress has clapped back at rapper Twista after he posted a fatphobic meme to his Instagram account.
More details below…
On December 9, the rapper posted the now-deleted Instagram, which compared Sidibe to model Bernice Burgos.
The first picture, which depicts the ‘American Horror Story’ actress is supposed to represent a successful but not conventionally attractive woman (choice A) while the second choice, (Choice B), is supposed to represent he type of woman projected as beautiful but isn’t grounded financially, or Burgos.
Twista captioned the meme:
“Who y’all choosing A or B?”
This caused Sidibe, who has previously been subjected to public humiliation, to respond:
“Wow. I um…. gee. @twistagmg I only like you as a rapper I forgot about in 2005. But good luck with option B!”

Many fans also came to the defense of Sidibe and called out the ‘Overnight Celebrity’ rapper.

Gabby is engaged and a successful actress. I just saw her in another movie the other day. What has Twista been doing lately?!

Twista has since apologized for the meme in a post on his Instagram account, saying:
“Everyone is beautiful in my eyes! And I also believe that beauty starts from within!”

It should also be noted that the meme has no chance of becoming a reality, as Sidibe recently announced her engagement to her boyfriend Brandon Frankel last month (as we reported here).
With that, what are…
