Since that role which showcased her range and ability to act, she is now on the hit show Empire on FOX. On the show, she was in a sex scene that turned heads due to how rare we see such scene with plus-sized actors. “I, a plus sized, dark-skinned woman, had a love scene on prime-time television … I was nervous … But I felt sexy and beautiful…” she said about the scene.
While she has suffered many criticisms and downright hateful posts from social media users, it’s nothing new for her. She has a really sly way of addressing her haters. One tweet read, “to people making mean comments about my GG pics, I mos def cried about it on that private jet on my way to my dream job last night #JK”.
