Apparently, Gabourey got weight loss surgery because she was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. I’m really sad that she had to deal with that (my mom has diabetes, and she took the diagnosis really hard), but I’m happy that she chose to do this for her own health and not because she felt pressured to.
I’m also side eyeing everyone saying how “good” she looks “now,” when she’s always been beautiful.
when the get down came out, i remember seeing a lot of articles on twitter talking how it was not really good blah blah and a lot ppl on twitter were being a little smug like well thats what you get when a white man is in charge of a show abt hip hip. but i dont think any of those ppl actually watched it, and were mostly relying on these very biased articles , mostly written by, you guess, white ppl. i compared reviews of stranger things and tgd on one site & like what shows did they watch lol.
