Gabrielle Union looked so lovely in her blue dress on “The View.” She visited the show in order to promote the finale of “Being Mary Jane” which will happen tonight. Aside from this, Gabby also talked about the lawsuit that she filed against her former employer due to a rape incident. She revealed that she is a strong survivor. Gabby was raped when she was still 19 years old while she was at work.
Gabrielle Union also revealed that she hates being the victim. She said:
“I got sick of people letting me off the hook. Being a victim is so comfortable. People give you attention, people are nurturing, they’re basically what you’ve wanted your whole life without something bad happening. So, when something catastrophic happens, everyone rallies around you. You’re getting all the attention, love and support you’ve always wanted. But it’s not for something positive. I hated that. I hated feeling like a victim. I hated the cloak of victimhood.”
She further added:
“They were going to allow me to be a victim and not success and not achieve any of my goals and not step outside the box. I want to embrace being a survivor. Because that’s who I am. I wasn’t raised to be coddled. I was raised to be an independent woman, standing on my own two feet.”
What can you say about Gabby’s revelation?
