Academy Award-nominated actress Gabourey Sidibe had something to say to all the Twitter bullies that trolled her red carpet pictures.

As the "Precious" actress attended the 2014 Golden Globes Awards Sunday in a shimmery, cream-colored gown from stylist Daniel Musto and Michael Costello Couture, mean-spirited Twitter users began attacking her online with comments such as, "she looks like a condom" and "she looks like the chubby ghost from Casper." 

However, Sidibe, who currently stars in "American Horror Story: Coven," took to Twitter to confront her haters and deliver the most epic response:
