U Mad: Racist Twitter Is Coming For Gabrielle Union Over Her Gwen Stefani Halloween Costume

They’re calling it a “double standard.”

Published October 30th

Gabrielle Union celebrated her 46th birthday with a huge '90s bday bash.

While fans were excited to see her dressed up as Gwen Stefani from her 1990s No Doubt era, the Being Mary Jane actress left racist Twitter users up in arms accusing her of cultural appropriation and reverse racism.

 

  1. The actress took to social media sharing a video of her rocking out to No Doubt's 1996 single "Spiderwebs" ...

    ... dressed in a blonde pompadour-styled wig, a cropped shirt that read "Gwen," plaid, zipper covered pants and combat boots, it was clear who Union's inspo was.

  2. While most fans were getting their lives of Gabby's costume selection, there was a small section of Twitter making outlandish claims.

    Due to NBC's recent removal of Megan Kelly after her controversial comments on blackface, racist Twitter users immediately cried foul.

  3. Despite the unwarranted outcry, Gabrielle Union continued to celebrate her birthday in style.

    She even had a surprise performance from '90s rap legend Lil Kim.
