Gabrielle Union Supports Boycotters of 'Birth of a Nation'

The buzzworthy new film The Birth of a Nation has been boycotted by many people after its star and director Nate Parker‘s rape case resurfaced. Now, co-star Gabrielle Union says she supports the boycotters.

The actress, who is a sexual assault survivor, opens up in the new issue of Essence about the case.

“Every victim or survivor, I believe you. I support you. I support you if you don’t want to see the film. I absolutely understand and respect that. I can’t sell the film,” Gabrielle said.

Pictured inside: Nate, Gabrielle, Armie Hammer (with wife Elizabeth), and Chike Okonkwo at the premiere held during the BFI London Film Festival on Tuesday (October 11) at Odeon Leicester Square in London, England.

FYI: Gabrielle is wearing a Zuhair Murad gown and Pasquale Bruni jewelry.
