Gabrielle Union Laces Up News Anchor Who Was Told Her Dresses Were Too Tight For Her Pregnant Body

By Posted on 56 2 m read


Gabrielle Union who recently played a news anchor and journalist on her hit show ‘Being Mary Jane’ recently sent some of her pieces from her New York and Company Collection to Demetria Obilor. Demetria, a 26-year-old reporter for ABC affiliate WFAA was body shamed for wearing dresses that showed her beautiful curves on the air.  “YOU are the real-life Mary Jane… A go-getter news anchor who dresses DOPE and doesn’t give a s*** what everyone else thinks,” Union wrote to Demetria on Instagram. “Keep on kicking a– and taking names queen. We love you just the way you are! And since you slay everything you wear, I’m sending you a bunch of pieces from my @nyandcompany collection and some credit for extra pieces!”

There are many “Demetria’s” on television who go through public ridicule every day because they aren’t fitting into “society” standards of what women should look like on TV. On Wednesday, Union spotlighted Laura Warren,  a news anchor for NBC affiliate WRDW in Augusta, Georgia. Warren was criticized while she was pregnant. A voicemail was left by a viewer saying, that they were “disgusted” and that she was wearing “too right outfits” that showed too much of her growing stomach.

“I consider myself a confident, pretty secure, independent, woman,” Warren wrote on her personal blog. “Why was I letting this one ridiculous, negative comment ruin my whole day? I’ve gotten dozens of compliments from viewers saying nice things about my pregnancy, why was this the one that stuck?”

Warren plans to focus on the positive like Demetria and they both will forever be an example for future news anchors.

“I’m going to say as many nice things as I can to as many people as I can, and I’m going to do it in a dress that fits these beautiful new curves with my ‘watermelon’ stomach showing.” – Laura Warren

Rock the hell out of those curves and those dresses ladies!

    I’m very happy to read this. This is the type of manual that needs to be given and not the accidental misinformation that is at the other blogs. Appreciate your sharing this greatest doc.

    Hey this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I imply, I know it was my choice to learn, but I really thought youd have one thing attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you can fix for those who werent too busy on the lookout for attention.

    Many thanks for this article. I will also like to express that it can become hard if you find yourself in school and merely starting out to initiate a long credit standing. There are many individuals who are merely trying to survive and have long or positive credit history can occasionally be a difficult factor to have.

What do you think?
