POP OFF SON! Gabby Sidibe's Mom Responds To Howard Stern+Rachel True Goes In On "Racist" CW Network!


While you should never, ever respond to an enemy who is beneath you, this video right here made us kinda gad someone did. Gabourey Sidibe's mother Alice has responded to Howard Stern. When the shock jock and his "side kick" Robin disgustingly disrespected Gabby earlier this week on his show about Gabby's weight, the internets were up in arms. CHECK HERE IF YOU MISSED IT. Now, mama bear has something to say to Mr. Stern who called her cub "the most enormous fattest black chick he's ever seen" and said "she would never get another acting role again." Meanwhile, Gabby has already filmed another movie and is also starring in the new Showtime series "The C Word." Pow. An actress calls out the CW for being racist with their shows when you read the rest...

Remember Rachel True from UPN's "Half & Half" and the movie The Craft (one of my all time faves by the way)?  Well, she has some words for the CW network.  And she's calling them out for making money off black shows then canceling them and running ridiculous shows like "High Society."  That show is a bonafide mess though.

Her tweets have since been removed.  Oh wells...

"The Game", "Everybody Hates

"The Game", "Everybody Hates Chris", "Girlfriends", against "True Beauty", "Beauty and the Geek", "90210". Despite that fact that most of the Black shows that the CW picked up were quality family entertainment, they would rather show a boatload of crap than actually appeal to a family oriented audience. With them, it is all about sex and money, or money with some sex thrown in. Have you noticed that when the do have people of color on their shows, they are the "whitest" people of color you have ever seen? Just sayin'.

I agree CW is messed up they cancelled good shows and replaced them with pure crap! I would not even mind if it was quality stuff. I took one look at 'high society's' ad and changed the channel. it looks like the jersey shore kids with trust funds

Health is MORE than

Health is MORE than weight....people criticize Gabby YET smoke like a chimney, have unprotected hookups, have baby after baby, use coke and cigarettes to suppress their appetites, binge drink. So you may be skinny but how do we know YOU are healthy.

I AM DEFENDING GABBY AND I AM

I AM DEFENDING GABBY AND I AM BLACK AND A SIZE FOUR SO FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE SAYING THAT BLACK WOMEN ARE ALL OBESE ARE WRONG. I AM DEFENDING HER BECAUSE SHE IS A GREAT ACTRESS. NONE OF YOU KNOW HER PERSONALLY SO WHY ARE YOU ATTACKING HER WEIGHT. JUST LEAVE IT ALONE AND TALK ABOUT SOMETHING ELSE.

Anonymous 2:16, go to hell

Anonymous 2:16, go to hell where you belong. Robin's gastric bypass did nothing for her health or appearance. She still has body issues and is taking them out on someone else for a check. If he was really concerned about Gabourey, he would talk to her not about her. I'm sure he could have his people contact her people and set up a convo. He's an ass and is trying to remain relevant. He should stick to talking to wannabe Playboy models on his show and begging his wife for sex (she's only there for the money since his looks and personality are awful). Robin should stay silent since she has nothing worthwhile to say. Rachel True said nothing but the truth, no pun intended. They feel that putting one token black character on a couple of shows is sufficient. It's not and I HATE America's Next Top Model now. I still like Miss Jay and ALT but the "models" are so immature and annoying and Tyra often overlooks the bs that goes on behind the scenes. That show needs to end now. They can end it abruptly like they did All of Us, Second Time Around, Eve, Girlfriends and The Game. No one would care.

I totally agree with Rachel!

I totally agree with Rachel! I've been saying the same thing for years. UPN, WB, CW, and fox all did the same thing. We they first got started they geared all of their shows to the black and/or urban market. As soon as the networks got popular and started making money they cancel all the black shows and start marketing to the mainstream white market! I knew that was CW's plan when they started airing the show Veronica Mars on cbs on Friday's. If they could get people to start watching the show and like it those people would tune in to CW to watch it. That is exactly what happen. I don't watch any of those networks. They used black people to help them get established and then kicked us to the curb later!

Howard Stern and his side

Howard Stern and his side kick is ugly as shit so they have no room to talk about no one....Gabby is a great actress and I think that her career is about to take off...she's in hollywood now so she'll lose weight they all do once they get established but for him to come out and say what he said was just rude and disrespectful and he is lucky she has a king mother because if I was her mother I would have cussed him right out....Fuck Howard Gabby do ur thing girl...I hate ignorant people and that's just what he is an ignorant bastard and he makes me sick....

I'm sorry, people need to

I'm sorry, people need to realize the difference when they are giving constructive advice to someone and when their just down right disrespecting someone. Yes Gabby is overweight, but such poor words to express it is not necessary, if he meant well, he would have explained the seriousness about being overweight or obese and how it can destroy her young life and career, but to say she's big and she will "never" get into an another movie, to me that's like promoting to other movie directors not to give her any parts again.

The only reason why everybody

The only reason why everybody is taking a shot at Gabourey, is to stay relevant. Gabourey is the talk right now and famous for her "BODY" of work and the buzz in the news, good or bad. And all these celebrities that are becoming irrelevant, are taking shots at her, trying to shock ppl on purpose and trying to say irresponsible things to bring attention to their failing careers. They say something nasty and mean and then wait on a community or organization or the media to make a buzz about it and then apologize. This attention trick is getting old and played out, as soon as people stop being dumb and realize that people like Jammie Fox and Howard Stern are using the rude comments for their own personal survival to stay relevant. You see how much attention it gets every time someone says somethings insensative? It's done on purpose to get attention and then they apologize, or go to rehab. And Jammie fox is not funny, what if someone made fun of his retarded sister.

the thing that kills me is

the thing that kills me is that everyone has an opinion about what she needs to do. If she wants to lose weight she will and if she doesn't she doesn't. Everybody thinks because they have whats left of a logical brain and access to a medium that they can tell people what they need to do. When did it become ok for people to put priority over what other's should do instead of working on making themselves better. There isn't one person on earth that has no problems, so work on your own shit and let Gabby do what the hell she feel is fit damn. Her mother stated the truth when she said that they didn't maker her so she shouldn't let them break her. That philosophy right there needs to be cemented in gold.

I m saying, of course Gabby

I m saying, of course Gabby is going to lose weight now that she has the money. No one over-weight WANTS to be that way. He sounded stupid (including the poster above me) because she already has things lined up waiting. Some long time actors haven't even made it to an Oscar nomination so why are they just blowing her off? (cough, cough hater racist)Truth is people hate change. Mom Dukes represented for all the black mama's lol

Howard Stern just spoke the

Howard Stern just spoke the truth. Bottom line. Not a fan of his - and not a fan of hers either. She's grossly overweight and in the dangerous weight category. She NEEDS to lose weight and she damn sure won't be working long-term so she better enjoy her 15 minutes while it lasts because she'll be the acting version of a music's one-hit wonder.

This should have been closed

This should have been closed for comments after Ari's post because she pretty much shut it down. Most of the people here criticizing are the same ones at the clubs celebrating binge drinking with Trey Songz (why else is "say ahh" his biggest hit yet the most lackluster song of his career? someone is buying it) having unprotected sex, smoking, and abusing your bodies with all these damned energy drinks...please health is the least of your concerns. she isn't aesthetically appealing enough for some of you and you feel as if that warrants throwing negative shade towards someone who exudes positive energy. shame on you.

Gabby is talented and I hope

Gabby is talented and I hope she does get roles, but I also hope she loses some weight because it would just be better for her all around, but I think her oscar nomination might help her get work maybe... I dunno time will tell. CW is kinda racist but most of my fave shows are on there... 90210, One Tree Hill,Gossip Girl, Vampire Diaries... those are my shows, each of them have atleast one black character.. not enough but they are great entertaining shows... I do miss the game tho but my sister met pooch hall and he said it IS coming back

its true about the cw, steve

its true about the cw, steve harvey pointed that out years ago, he mad a a comment saying that network builds it rating by putting on a black show or two (ie. steve harvey show) then when the ratings are up they cancel the black shows and replace with a bunch of bullshitty ass white shows so there is definetly much truth to that statement, we as black ppl have a lot of power, we need to start boycotting these networks, you don't support us so we don't support you.

@ kelly. I agree a 100% that

@ kelly. I agree a 100% that the truth about the consequences of excess weight should be stressed. However, the way in which this msg is conveyed can either encourage, discourage or aggravate the individual. And what do we aim for, to encourage people to engage in activities that promote lipolysis and overall health and not denigrate them because of their size (which is already stigmatized) because thats a discouraging factor and ur completely aware of that. If ur so good in nutrition as u seem to appear, u should know that there are many factors that contribute to an individuals tendency to retain fat more readily than others. e.g genes, thermogenesis and a whole lot more, as u noticed that Gabbys mum is on the big side and so u can tell that she was prediposed to being obese. Anyways the point I'm emphasizing is, it is needless to come off as insensitive and aggressive to convey an important msg that can make people more aware of their actions. PEACE
Lets encourage and not spite's picture

It's funny how we are more

It's funny how we are more concerned about her being over weight than these crazy ass diets celebrities are always on which are killing them slowly without them even being aware. THOSE are what we should really be talking about. Let's stop trying to standardize the body and realize that health is not just physical, it is emotional and internal and spiritual as well. How many of these "healthy" skinny chicks are actually suffering from eating disorders or crazy diets that are destroying up their bodies and psychologically sick with their obsession with being losing weight and being skinny and fitting this impossible idealized body that can only be obtained through starvation and surgery.

people are such idiots talkin

people are such idiots talkin about the mother is acting as if her weight is ok, so would u feel like it would be better for her mother to criticize her and come down on her on live tv for the whole world to see, i'm sure she has talked to her daughter about her weight in the privacy of their home but for anyone to think that she should condemn her on the tv is an idiot and i hope they never have kids

Its a shame how people will

Its a shame how people will try to trick you into believing that you are worth nothing so that they can feel like they are everything. Its kinda like how Kanye tried to take away from Taylor Swift's moment...But just as I believe Kanye was right that Beyonce's video was better, I do think that everyone would agree with Howard that Gabby could lose some weight. However, people are so insensitive. Imagine if you were in her shoes. Its not easy being big and even though she is super confident, no one can deny that if someone made comments like these about you, that you wouldnt want to go somewhere to hide and cry. At the end of the day, I know these things really do hurt her deep down inside and for that reason, I do really admire her as a person for her strength and confidence.

To be a man you are so stupid, your beauty so called beauty will not last I'd like to see you in a few years. Your co-host Robin is an ass kisser and a yes man. She doesn't thing for herself she follows whatever you say. Shame on the both of you. Robin, you are a big boned girl to. I say girl because you are so unlearned.

Gosh black people have turned

Gosh black people have turned in to such whiners! So he said it, it wasn't nice...but it is HIS opinion! Don't like it don't listen. Heck I thought she was pretty big when I first saw the previews of the movie and thought that it's a darn shame and hoped that she'd get some help. This really makes blacks look silly and childish...you know how many more ratings he has probably gotten since the MEDIA blew this up! geesh write about something contructive and blow that up sometimes. While many of our kids are epically failing at school, sick from obesity, killing and degrading each other amongst many other things people are enraged by this ignorant man's opinion....c'mon black people #getittogether

Yeah I was mad at the High

Yeah I was mad at the High Soecity show. The girl on there talking about she think the word “Nigger” should be able to be used all the time. Then they showed a clip of her at the club talking about “That black girl has to leave!” I couldn’t believe they would put something like that… put a person that extreme on tv. Obviously they shooting for just white people to watch that mess, and they show truley is a white mess. The main girl is the chick who designs those Samantha Thavasa bags that Beyonce and Solange model. She is alos friends with the Racist girl. I wonder if Bey and Solo knew that, would they still be modeling her bags??!?!?!?

While that's not what this

While that's not what this post is about, I agree with Kelly Clear. As the new thing out who can get a show a bit of attention Gabby may grab a few roles for a few minutes but that's it. And @ Ari If being like Gabby overweight and not quite attractive but 'so beautiful inside" *giggles a little* is such a great thing, why were you so quick to point out your stats to Kelly Clear? Would it have been THAT bad to have someone you don't even know think you're overweight AND you wanted us to know you're "caramel-complected". Sounds like you're part of the world the same superficial world you pretend to shake your head at. Truth is truth But AGAIN THIS POST was not about that, it was about a mother taking up for her daughter and I can get with that. By the way, did any of you happen to notice that my comment is LAST!

On top of it all, did you all notice this ignorant bird looking freak didn't even pronounce Gabby's name correctly? He called her Gabrielle instead of Gabourey!! Review the video. Beauty is skin deep except in Howard Stern's case--ugly is da the bone.
