On Wednesday night, Empire's Becky character played by actress Gabourey Sidibe had a sex scene with her on-screen boyfriend, MC J Poppa (actor Mo McRae), and immediately numerous memes popped up on social media fat shaming the actress. 

In a blog post for Entertainment Weekly published on Thursday, Gabby responded to her critics:
“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. I’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 “hating” on it. I’m not sure how anyone could hate on love but that’s okay. You may have your memes. Honestly, I’m at work too busy to check Twitter anyway. #Booked. Hope you enjoy next week’s show!”
