*Gabourey Sidibe’s mother is defending her daughter against negative comments made about her daughter’s weight by shock jock Howard Stern.
The Sirius satellite radio host called the actress an “enormous, fat, black chick” and claimed she’ll never appear in another movie because of her weight.
In an interview with “Inside Edition,” Gabby’s mom Alice Tan Ridley told Stern to “get a life”
“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,” said Ridley. “I don’t see him giving jobs out to everybody, so why should we care what he says? He might not hire her, but someone else will.”
The National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance recently offered its support to Sidibe after she was approached by a diet company.
