Have you ever taken a selfie and posted it just because you were really feeling yourself at that moment?  That’s exactly what Empire actress Gabourey Sidibe did.  Sidibe posted a selfie to Instagram and she unexpectedly got loads of positive comments about her apparent slimmer figure.

After Sidibe posted the selfie, she began to get encouraging comments from fans who noticed her slimmer figure, some even said she is an inspiration to them.  Sidibe was taken back by all the positive comments, so she posted a tweet to clarify why she had posted the selfie in the first place.

We have seen social media used as a means to bully people lately, so it’s refreshing to see it being used to spread some love this time.
