The NAAFA Wants Gabourey Sidibe To Stay Fat!

| Filed under: Beauty Buzz


What's the NAAFA you ask? Why the National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance, of course.

Yes it's real and to be fair, our initial reaction was also, "WTF???"

The NAAFA organization is taking it to the streets to speak out in favor of Gabourey Sidibe's hefty size. Sources have suggested that a weight loss company has approached the Oscar nominated actress in an effort to get her back to the "healthy" weight.

However, the NAAFA is insisting that there is nothing wrong with her size and that the Precious star is perfectly healthy. A spokeswoman for NAAFA released a statement this morning, saying:

"You cannot tell by looking at a person if they are healthy. Fat does not equal disease and thin does not equal healthy…Achievements come in all sizes."

Quite true and Gabby certainly has accomplished a lot. We don't think she needs any help defending herself, though. From what we have seen, girl is FIERCE and a fighter all on her own!

    I'm sorry, but how is someone that obese considered "healthy"??

  2. 2

    On the other hand NAAFA thinks the opposite of u fattie.

  3. 3

    I love her, but there is NO way Gaby is 100% healthy!

  4. 4

    This is so PATHETIC, seriously but whatever..

  5. 5

    As a nurse I find this disturbing. Sure we shouldn't make people feel like shit day in and day out over their looks, but I'm sure any clinical study is going to tell you that being overweight is unhealthy.

  6. 6

    Good point. Fat doesn't mean unhealthy and skinny doesn't mean healthy. But although there are a lot of opinions out there….I hear none from doctors.
    Someone should maybe examine her before encouraging her to loose weight or maintain her weight.
    Either way, it's her decision and no one else's. Not Howard Sterns and not the NAFAA.
    Leave the girl alone. I'm sure she knows more about her weight than any of the people commenting on it and she'll decide to deal with it the way she sees fit.
    End of story.

  7. 7

    *Sorry the NAAFA

  8. 8

    She's not fat, she's obese. Any doctor or even anyone that's taken a basic biology class knows what obesity does to your body, and it's anything but "healthy". Everyone should be comfortable in their own skin but being okay with someone being obese means being okay with them suffering the consequences of obesity, including diabetes, heart disease, etc. No one should starve themselves to fit a picture perfect image, but we should encourage people to reach a weight that doesn't cause extreme stress on their bodies.

  9. 9

    that picture is completely disgusting

  10. 10

    She is healthy now because she is so young……. I hope she travels 'first class' now with all the money that she got from the movie because who wants to be seating next to her !

  11. 11

    And that's why people are dying from heart disease, stroke and diabetes everyday. It's not okay to be that fat. Sorry. Their are NO excuses. Even if its your thyroid. Putting raw foods into your diet, especially dark leafy veggies, can do wonders. She needs to get healthy and be here for a while.

  12. 12

    Perectly healthy
    with hundreds of
    pounds of mass
    surrounding her
    heart, lungs, liver
    and other vital organs.
    Yes, perectly healthy
    suffocating herself.

  13. 13

    National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance?? Are you KIDDING me? That's unbelievably appalling!! Why don't we just make a, "National Association to Advance Drug Addict Acceptance?" I'm so full of disgust. Being healthy and in shape is something to be advanced. Being overweight or OBESE like this actress is unacceptable. Accepting something like obesity is accepting something as disgusting as illegal drug habits. It's unhealthy and despicable. THIS GIRL IS NOT FINE THE WAY SHE IS. She needs to lose weight. She is knocking off years of her life. I congratulate her for being strong to defy societal norms and come so far in an industry of emaciated individuals…. but she is absolutely NOT a hero. She needs to get healthy. She is NOT. I don't give a damn what any fat group says. She is NOT healthy.

  14. 14

    wtf? there's no way being that obese could be healthy! she needs to eat less and exorcise more!

  15. 15

    Being THAT big is unhealthy no matter what anyone says.
    Yes, people shouldn't rag on overweight people just for being big, but to say that she's healthy at that weight is ridiculous.
    Just looking at her, it's obvious that she probably suffers from sleep apnea (you stop breathing while you sleep), b/c of the fast around her neck and chest.

  16. 16

    We'll see how they feel when it takes a crane to come get her to take her to the hospital for organ failure.

  17. 17

    I bet her vagina is totally gross and unclean… I mean you can tell she can't reach down there….she can't reach for anything with those huge arms and stomach…except for more food

  18. 18

    I think she's cute, but she needs 2 loose some weight. She don't look healthy.

  19. 19

    Her weight, Her business! She is a 26 year old woman, not a 6 year old child. Are you her doctor? Are you paying her medical bills? Do you want someone judging your life? Leave her alone and go even TRY to get nominated for an academy award!

  20. 20


  21. 21

    there is NO way someone that obese can be healthy! nobody is asking her to become as thin as a model, but she really needs to lose some weight just so she can at least be HEALTHY!

  22. uw101 says – reply to this


    She sort of looks like my brown leather couch, if I threw a big blue tarp on it

  23. 23

    Look, they need to realize that when they try to say that this woman is healthy they lose all credibility. She may not be sick now, but her joints are suffering, she is a enormous risk for diabeties or heart attack. What they need to say is "Stop picking on her" but they need to stop trying to lie and say that somebody 100lbs overweight is just as healthy as they would be if they were 100lbs lighter.

  24. Phaze says – reply to this


    Well, being that overweight IS unhealthy, but I think she's still adorable

  25. 25

    There's definitely a difference between having a "full" figure or being curvy vs. being obese. She is HUGE and there is NO way in hell that she is healthy. She probably has a hard time walking up stairs.
    I think society is stupid for trying to make fatness/obesity beautiful or acceptable. It's not healthy and you can die. period. Humans are not created to get that big!

  26. 26

    Being fat IS unhealthy, my best friend is overweight and just found out she's very close to being a diabetic so now she's on a diet so she will not become sick. She will say it herself that being fat is very unhealthy. Just because your test results come out okay now doesn't mean they will come out good in a couple of years from now. Eating bad will eventually catch up with anyone even if you're skinny, but it's worse when you have hundreds of extra pounds on your body.

  27. 27

    It's good she is happy with herself, but she also needs to recognize that being healthy now doesn't mean she will be healthy next week.

    I love her. I think she is great. I'm a big girl too. I'm working on it. Maybe she is too. She seems bigger now than she did in Precious.

  28. 28

    Quite true? Is this a joke? Being obese is a risk factor for SO many diseases. Do some reading up on the subject before supporting a lifestyle that's this bad.

  29. 29

    As an obese person that is working hard to lose weight, I KNOW I am not healthy at 240lbs. This girl appears to be close to 400lbs. While being a little overweight(like 10- even 20lbs) doesn't automaticly equal unhealthy, being morbidly obese is NOT healthy. It has nothing to do with her talent and everything to do with her health. Losing weight would make her physicly feel better, it won't change her talent either way.

  30. 30

    Insert head in sand. There has been tons of research proving that being that overweight is unhealthy. Would these people advocate drug addicts too?

  31. 31

    coming from someone who use to be fat - don't do anything someone tells you to do. Only do it for yourself. I will never be fat again (I don't wish it on anyone)…but if you love yourself, you'd lose weight.

  32. 32

    What I find disturbing is all the stretch marks on her shoulder alone, please cover up that is offensive to my eyes. Nasty, she may be able to act (we will have to wait and see cause you can not tell after one movie no matter what the academy says) but she is not good to look at and fat is not beautiful or healthy. Get help for that.

  33. 33

    These people are idots. Because i'm pretty sure that when your SHOULDER AND BACK are full of stretch marks…..that means you are super super super fat…..and that you are NOT healthy!

  34. 34

    There is a difference between fat and morbidly obese. Morbidly obese is serious and it isn't healthy. She isn't fat, she is MORBIDLY OBESE.

  35. 35

    There is no way she is 100% healthy someone with that weight has some sort of health problem.

  36. 36

    this is her life. people need to stfu, and keep their opinions to herself.
    why is it that that everyone is singiling her out and telling her she's obese and unhealthy when over 1 quarter of the US population is overweight.
    instead of giving her shit, look around you guys and fix your lives before you express your shallow opinion on someone you don't even know.

    give the girl a break, she is beautiful no matter what.

  37. 37

    NAAFA = IDIOTS! "Fat does not equal disease and thin does not equal healthy". Gab is EXTREMELY fat. Not "pleasantly plump". She's vulnerable to heart disease, high blood pressure - resulting in stroke (which is more fatal in females), joint displacement, breathing problems, sleeping disorder, fatigue, etc. I know - I was once her weight. I'm now down to 165 lbs. and exercising, eating right to simply be a healthy size. I don't desire to be super skinny. I just want to be fit/healthy. I admire Gabby, but the NAAFA may feel they have good intentions for self-esteem but it's not going to help her in the long run. She may end up like Chris Farley, John Candy, etc. Kids on campus were calling her "flabby gabby" and that's just cruel. Keep up the great acting Gab, but use common sense. H'wood wants you around for a long time!

  38. 38

    Honey Baked called, they want there hams back! Ahh but she really was good in The Blind Side.

  39. 39

    now those are some stretch marks…..didn't she have a makeup artist that could have taken care of that?

  40. 40

    she is a planet! can she make it up a flight of stairs?? I would love to know her bp heart rate and her cholesterol numbers…….

  41. 41

    That is disgusting. I cannot even believe there is a group called that. Promoting obesity is NOTHING to be proud of. Thin does not equal healthy, no, but neither does largely fat, which is exactly what she is.

  42. 42

    Big Black Dick is THE FUNNIEST commenter on this entire website! ROFLMAO!!!

  43. 43

    I love curvy females , But as a fit male there is no way I would want to be seen with a walking house, Sorry but she's so huge, she'll kill me in bed.

  44. 44

    And Perez, those are NOT lumps - those are massive hills!!!!!

  45. 45

    fiercely fat. come on perez you can not celebrate this…you have stuggled with your weight…….. she is a moose.

  46. 46

    Its unhealthy. If you need a 'special' seat the Oscars… its not right.

  47. 47

    whoever said the thyroid is no excuse is right. I have a thyroid problem , take medication for it and watch my diet and exercise and maintain a healthy weight. It can be achieved if you try for it. The only thing healthy about Gabourney is her appetite.

  48. 48

    They're just saying she's fat so the rest of America feels better. It has nothing to do with her personality or talent: she's obese many times over. Call a spade a spade.

  49. 49

    hm actually obese individuals are at greater risk for heart disease, pulmonary complications, diabetes, etc.

  50. 50

    Re: Alyc66 – You're correct that fat doesn't mean unhealthy and skinny doesn't mean healthy. There are many people that aren't a size 2 that live far healthier lifestyles than the ultra-thin, who can eat fast food and shit everyday without gaining a pound. Guess which one will die of heart disease.
    I think people should be more accepting of larger people, especially women, because not everyone can have the perfect body. I see girls commenting on this site saying that 130lb celebrities are "fat". Young girls are getting a disgustingly twisted body image from the media.
    NAAFA should be working on projecting healthy, not anorexic, body images to young girls instead of promoting unhealthy lifestyles. Obesity is a killer and people should be helped to lead healthy lifestyles, rather than being told that being morbidly obese is fine.

  51. 51

    She is just so fat that I can't find words big enough to describe how disgusting she is!

  52. 52

    It's interesting that this issue is so polarizing for people here, but when Jonathan Rhys Meyers or Pete Doherty are profiled due to their own addictions, people aren't nearly as vocal. It's also sad.

  53. Laury says – reply to this


    These people are out of their freaking minds. I'm not saying Gabby has to be skinny, but she definitely needs to lose weight. Not because she needs to conform to Hollywood beauty standards, but because if she doesn't lose weight, she won't make it past 40.

  54. 54

    She has stretchmarks on her arms. That doesn't scream healthy to me.

  55. 55


  56. 56

    I should also add that NAAFA should be promoting healthy eating for children with obese parents. Obesity is linked to genetics, but behaviours are learned as children and they can be healthy. I've seen documentaries on overweight children, and they're obese because their parents feed them crap and let them sit on their asses all day.
    My birth mother, I have been told, was a very large woman and I was a very fat baby. My parents raised me in a very healthy environment in which I ate healthy and I was always in sports. I wasn't skinny, but I have always been slim and athletic due to my upbringing. I have to work my ass off to maintain a size 6/8 (US), but I'm not obese, as I would be if I didn't live a healthy lifestyle.

  57. 57

    Too bad that being overweight increases your risk of HEART DISEASE and CANCER!!!

  58. 58

    she's the picture of health!

  59. ohboy says – reply to this


    Nothing wrong with her size? Are you shitting me? How about diabetes, heart disease, and asthma, just to name the main factors? Promoting healthy weight is one thing. Glorifying obesity (and the inherent LIFE-THREATENING DISEASES that go with it) is quite another.

  60. 60

    Umm at a certain point you CAN look at someone and know they are not healthy. I.E. her size!

  61. 61

    I agree with most of you on here while someone should not be constantly made fun of for there size there is no way that this girl is in anyway shape or form healthy. There is 20-30lbs overweight and healthy and then there is her. this is not slightly over weight she is if im not mistaken considered morbidly obese. Anyone who says otherwise are the idiots noone else

  62. Low says – reply to this


    NAAFT sound like a joke… fat is not unhealthy? How about all the FAT around your heart????????

  63. 63

    Re: DBritMoney – Haha you are so right! I can't even believe that group exists.

  64. 64

    I hate Howard Stern, however, he's right on this one. Damn….this girl has stretch marks on her stretch marks.

  65. 65


  66. 66

    ummm.. Anyone who isn't mentally challenged can tell that she is not healthy.. She's beyond size WHALE already!

  67. 67

    i'm not saying she needs to become a size 2, but her losing some pounds would do her body good. That size is NOT healthy. Carrying around that much extra weight puts a huge strain on one's entire body, particularly the heart among many other vital organs.

  68. 68

    Nasty! Gross! I'll have sex with just about anything, but she really has outdone even my sex drive!

  69. 69

    Sorry but accepting someone that is obese and allowing them to risk their health and wellbeing while smelling like ass is not a cool thing

  70. 70

    why is it that Perez is okay with this girl being so overweight but he picks on other actresses if they are ten pounds overweight????

  71. 71

    Morbid obesity is unhealthy. Period.

  72. 72


  73. 73

    Re: DBritMoney
    Perfectly said. I couldn't care less what this girl's weight is, but when people start saying she's healthy and she should be admired for her confidence that's where I draw the line. We condemn people for being drug addicts, anorexics, alcoholics, etc., this is THE SAME THING. Her weight is unhealthy. Done.

  74. 74

    Re: Jessica_Simpson_tuna_vagina – i see ur point…but i'm still wondering if she already has a nurse or someone to wipe her ass after she shits….if she can't reach her puss she definitely can't reach her behind neither..

  75. 75

    NAAFA ajajjaaja a lot of fat people sitting in BIG desk!!!!!!

    ppl are so stupid, is truth that thin doesnt mean healthy but c.mon
    this girls is a heart attack waiting to happen…

    i understand they show her support and stuff but they are really stupid if they think she is HEALTHY no way in hell

  76. 76

    are you KIDDING me??! fat = unhealthy. you can't be that large and not have health issues. its not a question of accepting different shapes and sizes. its a question of setting an example for how to take care of and respect your body.

  77. 77

    Uh yeah, I have to agree that she is not healthy. More like morbidly obese and increasing her risk for heart disease, stroke, diabetes type 2, high blood pressure, osteoarthritis, and cancer. Some of you people have no idea of the danger. It's true that skinny doesn't equal healthy, and health is not determined by weight alone. But if she is that overweight, she probably has more fatty desposits and wear and tear on her joints than a non-obese/overweight person.

  78. 78

    Re: DBritMoney – … ITA 100% and anyone who doesn't agree is stupid as hell…PERIOD

  79. 79

    Finally someone Mario can relate to. Next to her he appears normal. I guess he can quit crowing about his Pliates and Spinning and Yoga now as NAAFA has condoned that being a fat fuckpig is just fine. And seeing how she is garnering so much attention maybe you can just drop the pretense of any health regimen you are on and start frequenting In and Out Burger more often. We all know your deal anyway…any press is good press…… John Mayer may shoot you a sympathy tweet if you tip the scales at 400+

  80. 80


  81. 81

    Ew, she's so gross to look at. There is no way being that fat is in her best interests. Stuff the NAAFA.

  82. 82

    Finally, people are talking about this subject truthfully! I'm sure it must be rough when you're fat. Nobody would be that way on purpose. (Except maybe the 600 pound woman I heard about today that's trying to get in the record books.) It doesn't make you a bad person. In Gabby's case, it doesn't interfere with her being a brilliant actress. It is unhealthful, though, no matter what the Fat Acceptance people are saying. The US is 41st worldwide in the mortality of women giving birth. A large part of that is probably due to the lack of universal health care but the people who released these statistics recently specifically named obesity as a major culprit. The US is the fattest country on earth and people are dying young because of it. Heart disease is the number one killer of women in the US. A lack of exercise plus a high fat diet is a major cause of heart disease. Gabby shouldn't feel bad because she's heavy but she should be terrified for her life. Nell Carter was another talented black actress who died young due to being overweight. I hope Gabby gets the help she needs so that doesn't happen to her. As for the fat and poor health deniers, please do some research from reputable doctors and nutritionists. You're not bad if you can't lose weight but you are shortening your life by at least 10 years, according to scientific studies.

  83. 83

    Fat doesn't always=disease, but this chick is ENORMOUS. She is at a dangerous weight!! You can't even see her elbows.

  84. 84

    Funny it's only uneducated fat people or fat people who don't want to admit what being fat does to them who say that "being fat doesn't mean disease" YES IT DOES. Funny, how you never hear doctors, surgeons, or the Surgeon General say "it's healthy to be over weight"

    With how big that girl is I'll be surprised if she lives to see 40.

    ONLY in AMERICA is there a National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance. WTF we are becoming a nation of complete retards, if we are not already.

  85. 85

    Re: DBritMoney – I agree with you 20000% percent.

  86. 86

    she SHOULD lose a couple of pounds.I'm all up for being tolerant to everyone, not discriminating fat people and all. But there's NO WAY Gabbie Sidibe is "healthy". She is obese, and that is a DISEASE. If she wants to LIVE,then she should lose some weight.

  87. 87

    she may be a great actor and yes real women have curves but this isnt what her real body type is suppose 2 b like…she should lose waight but not 4 other people or looks but for her health

  88. 88

    ok i have nothing against gabby but she is at an unhealthy weight… why would anyone want her to stay close to death?? fucking idiots….we shouldnt accept OBESE ppl..it is unhealthy! WAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH AMERICA????? U PPL ARE SICK!


  89. 89

    OK …I think as confident as this girl ACTS. No person that big is happy with the way she looks. Its something shes probably struggled with ALL her life. Im sure she knows better than any of you people about Her body. Yes the NAAFA is wrong being that obese is absolutley NOT healthy, how can it be. And NO its doesn't mean your healthy because your thin. She would need to lose 100lbd just to be obease. She is currently Super Obese. Im guessing she weighs about 400lb+ at that weight she is a ticking time bomb, she should accept any help she is offered. But it doesn't ever HELP somebody who is struggling with an issue like hers to call her names and put her down, which it what you people (most) do.

  90. 90

    Re: Juu – so true

  91. 91

    I really don't want to sound rude, cause I do like her and have NOTHING against heavier people…but honestly…when you have strech marks on your SHOULDER…something needs to be done :/

  92. 92

    Is NAAFA's statement a joke? While it's true that thin does not necessarily equal health, obesity does equal disease — heart disease, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, asthma, and so much more. It's a shame to lose anyone — not just actors like Gaby — to obesity and its related illnesses, which are totally preventable.

  93. 93

    At the risk of sounding politically incorrect, she is at an unhealthy weight. This does not diminish her accomplishments, but she needs to lose weight - if for no other reason, for her heart.

  94. 94

    Wonder how her joints feel. Our bodies were not built to carry that massive amount of weight.

  95. 95

    Seriously, that's just self-pity. I don't think anyone besides that group would think an obese person is healthy. I meant, Gabby is brilliant, but it wouldn't hurt for her to drop a couple pounds and actually be healthy…

  96. 96

    I agree with what you said perez, she's fierce and she can fight her own fights.
    She's a good heart and that's very rare in this world.

  97. 97

    GROSS!! GROSS!! Five years from now she will be a perfect contestant for Celebrity Fit Club! So tired of being PC! She has nothing to be proud of. One good movie and hundreds of pounds of fat doubt equal success!! Her arrogant attitude is being flaunted as gratuitous and confident.

  98. 98

    I think it's fair to say that anyone with "M.D" stuck onto their last name would disagree with the Fat Acceptance Assoc…..also fair to say that there probably aren't any M.Ds in this association.

  99. 99

    how can this be healthy????? She has stretch marks on her shoulders for pete's sake!! Why are people defending her obesity? She may be the nicest person in the world but that does not change the fact that she is presenting a horrible example for young people everywhere!!!!

  100. 100

    She needs to lose weight. NOW!
