‘Precious’ star, Gabourey Sidibe made her appearance at Golden Globes Awards last Sunday wearing an ivory satin gown with a jewel-embroidered bodice by Michael Costello Couture. We think she looked stunning but unfortunately, some viewers took offense and began tweeting harsh tweets about her.

Gabourey has always been comfortable in her skin, never really responding to her ill-mannered critics but on Monday she had enough, responding to the mean tweets with the best comeback we’ve seen from a celebrity in months.

She nailed it. Her response was witty, sarcastic and civil. Gabourey won the internet with her positive attitude and a sense of humour. We take our hat off to you, girl.
