Gabrielle Union has an epic response for fan who thinks she should dress 'age appropriate'


ANI Washington D.C. [USA]
American actor Gabrielle Union clapped back at an online troll telling her how to dress.
The 46-year-old actor recently shared a picture of herself on her Instagram account. She can be seen lounging on a sofa wearing a long black dress paired with sneakers. "All my unfinished work/projects from 2018 looking at me as I prepare my vision board for 2019 like. And a glimpse of my upcoming @nyandcompany eat/pray/love/travel/chill collection available next week," Union captioned the post.
While some of her followers raved about her look writing comments like, "Your style is off the chain," others weren't impressed. Her ensemble seemed to be a problem for an Instagram user who wrote, "Can you dress your age please."
In response to the comment, Union like a badass fired back saying, "Oh I'd looooove to hear what you think is age appropriate."
"Please give me allllll the age appropriate fashion advise [sic] I didnt know I needed in my life," she sarcastically added.
Interestingly, the 'Breaking In' actor is actually a legit fashion designer for the store New York & Company, and she was showing off one of her new designs. The 46-year-old revealed that the black outfit is part of her "eat/pray/love/travel/chill collection", which will be available next week. The actor launched her partnership with the brand earlier this year and is excited to continue her working with the brand, reported E! Online.
However, this isn't the first time Union has faced criticism.
Last month, Union and her husband Dwyane Wade welcomed their first child together--daughter Kaavia James via surrogate after years of trying to conceive on their own. For the happy announcement, Union shared a photo of herself with Wade and their little one lying down on a hospital bed.
During a recent interview with Oprah Winfrey, the couple revealed that Union's choice to wear a hospital gown, which facilitates skin-to-skin bonding, and take pictures on a hospital bed was conceived by some fans the wrong way.
"For me, the most hurtful thing was once we had our baby and everybody started talking about, 'Why is she in the bed holding the baby? Why she got a gown on? Why is she acting like she just had a baby?' Once again, people are uneducated on the process and why we decided to go skin-to-skin as soon as our baby came out," Wade said.
