Gabourey Sidibe's Mom Responds to Howard Stern

Well Said: Gabourey Sidibe's Mom Responds to Howard Stern

"He can see, you can see, I can see Gabby is a big girl. She’s a big woman, so what’s wrong with that? She’s not like everyone else in the world. . . . I don’t see him giving jobs out to anybody, so why should we care what he says? He might not hire her, but someone else will.”

— Alice Tan Ridley, the mother of Academy Award-nominated Gabourey Sidibe, talks back after Howard Stern called Gabby "the most enormous black chick he'd ever seen." Howard said that to support Gabby's career was to tacitly support obesity and that no one else would hire her — too bad someone already has.
