Gabourey Sidibe had the perfect answer for the haters who slammed her red carpet look at the Golden Globes on Sunday.
The Precious star, who was nominated for a Globe and an Oscar in 2010 for her breakthrough role, wore a cream coloured Grecian style gown by Daniel Musto and MIchael Costello with a sequin detail at the bodice and a slit up the front for Sunday’s awards show.
The plus-sized star, who has stated she’s comfortable with her size, was targeted by mean-spirited tweets about her appearance.
She tweeted: “To people making mean comments about my GG pics, I mos def cried about it on that private jet on my way to my dream job last night.

‘Bye!!! She looks like a condom,’ one person wrote on Twitter.
‘Geez! She looks like the chubby ghost from Casper,’ chimed in another.
