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.
