Gabourey Sidibe: Amber Riley and I aren’t the same person


The people behind the website TimetoBreak.Com clearly haven’t been watching Empire, or they’d know better than to mess with Becky.

The site caught an earful from Gabourey Sidibe after they included her in a weight-loss gallery, using her photo (shown above at the left) for the “before” shot and one of Glee star Amber Riley (right) for the “after” image.


“1.) My name is Gabourey Sidibe. Put some RESPEK on it!” She admonished on Twitter Friday after they used the name of her breakout character, Precious, in the headline. “2.) Amber Riley and I are not the same person.”.

She concluded the correction by flipping them the bird, emoji-style, thus rendering the tweet too NSFW to post here.

They’re the latest celebrities of color to get confused in the press and on social media. Two years ago, the Golden Globes’ social media team posted a picture of America Ferrera in a tweet congratulating Jane the Virgin star Gina Rodriguez on her nomination.

The Golden Globes’ Twitter confused Gina Rodriguez and America Ferrera.
