Gabourey Sidibe’s New Book Reveals Nick Cannon Sent Her An Offensive Script
Gabourey Sidibe has always exuded confidence, even before shedding a gang of pounds thanks to weight loss surgery. However, in her new book “This Is Just My Face,” she reveals that her weight became a sore spot on multiple occasions when certain celebs proved to be pretty insensitive. One such celeb was Nick Cannon, who according to RadarOnline reports, sent Sidibe a script full of fat shaming:
“The character was a plus-sized girl who is called ‘fat a**’ and ‘hippo,’” she said in her new memoir. “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.
Though it’s unclear if she ever reached out to Cannon, she imagined that he would be rattled by imminent shrunken frame.
“I would call Nick in a few days and have him remove those names,” she wrote. “Boy, would he be pissed by the time we shot the movie.”
As much as it sounds like Nick Cannon pushed Gabby to the edge, we’re guessing you can’t just walk in for weight loss surgery off the street so this had to be a coincidence, right?
We’re also guessing the project ended up not happening, but Cannon isn’t the only one skewered in Gabby’s memoir. She also reveals former VOGUE editor Andre Leon Talley once called her a “fat b***h.” YIKES.
