Robin Quivers Still Talking About Sidibe’s WeightPublished by Clay Cane on Tuesday, June 22, 2010 at 12:11 pm.
I thought this was a dead topic, especially considering the backlash Robin Quivers and Howard Stern received (not that they care) after mocking Gabourey Sidibe’s weight. However, Quivers is still talking and recently told Ebony, “People are being naïve when they say, ‘Oh, it’s great that she has this attitude.’ This girl is in trouble and people want to deny that. We have an epidemic of obesity in the black community, especially among Black women.”
I think everyone knows that Sidibe is overweight and I am sure the Academy Award nominee is aware of her size. What type of attitude should she have? Cry in every interview, complain she can’t control her eating, join Celebrity Fit Club — what does Quivers expect? I’d rather Sidibe have a positive attitude than be the stereotypical “tragic big girl.” Furthermore, in Sidibe’s private time we don’t know how she is bettering herself.
Quivers needs a new cause to rally for!
