Union helps body-shamed news anchor

You know how the saying goes: “When they go low, we go high.” And that’s exactly what Gabrielle Union did when helping out a news anchor who was met with body shaming from a viewer.

According to Glamour, after the multi-hyphenate heard the story of Georgia news anchor Laura Warren, who was “called out for wearing a formfitting dress while pregnant” and reportedly called “too disgusting to be on TV,” Union decided to step in and not only share Warren’s story, but also make the news anchor feel as beautiful as she should.

Posting Warren’s tale to Instagram and Twitter as her #WomanCrushWednesday, Glamour says Union praised her for not succumbing to her critic’s comments.

“Instead of letting this [body shaming] bring her down, she fought the good fight and decided to turn the negative energy into positive by saying nice things to as many people as possible and spreading love,” she wrote, according to Glamour. “Plus, she continues to wear whatever feels good to her while on TV! Keep doing you, Laura!”

But Union didn’t stop there: Glamour says she also promised to send Warren some pieces from her New York & Company clothing collection.

A happy ending indeed!
