Gabourey Sidibe

The American Horror Story: Coven star had to issue a mea culpa after she insulted the transgender community by using the term "tranny" repeatedly on The Arsenio Hall Show, and making light of transgender violence. Sidibe said she "didn't realize it was a slur" and apologized for her "poor choice of words."
