*Gabrielle Union is responding to the hateful comments she received for wearing a sheer/ass-baring dress to the Netflix screening of her film “The Perfect Find” during the American Black Film Festival.

“Somebody said, ‘You’re old enough to be somebody’s grandma, why are you still in — like wearing swimsuits?” Union, 50, shared on the Who What Wear with Hillary Kerr podcast, TooFab reports. “I’m like, ‘First of all, they’re not just swimsuits. They are thongs.”

Thongs will not be going away anytime soon for the actress, who added: “And you’re gonna see these cheeks until my ass literally falls off. And I might just wear a bikini in the casket.”

“I don’t know. That just might be for you, for that one commenter,” Union continued. “This is for you b–ch …It’s just gonna be like, me in a thong, like, ass-up in the casket.”

As we reported previously, Union rocked a revealing look for her red-carpet appearance at the screening of her new movie in Miami Beach in June. Her dress by designer Burc Akyol featured a bodysuit with a thong back, showing off her derriere.

“Just enough to get a glimpse,” Union wrote in the caption of a video shared on Instagram (SWIPE left on clip above). As People reports, Union’s husband Dwayne Wade replied, “Damn ????????????????????”, in the comments, while Taraji P. Henson added, “WERK!!!!!!!!!!! ????????????”  

Henson also made a shocking fashion statement for her red-carpet moment with Union at the Netflix screening during ABFF. The 53-year-old actress gave fans a glimpse of her breasts in a black Missoni floor-length gown with black tape on her nipples, SandraRose.com reports.

“Supporting my sister @gabunion @netflix film #theperfectfind at the @americanblackfilmfestival THE MOVIE IS SOOOOOOO GOOD AND A MUST SEE. #blackexcellence at it’s finest!!! ???????????? Getty photo credit @ivanapfelphotography,” Henson wrote in the caption of her IG post — see below.
