The American Horror Story actress walked the red carpet in a long, shimmery, short-sleeved cream number. And it was pretty. But it wasn't the dress that body shamers hated. It was Sidibe's body in the dress that they couldn't stand.

Anyway, Sidibe caught wind of all of the nastiness, and her response is perfect.
