“I do think it was a mistake. I was given full range to do whatever I wanted with Isis in Bring It On, and I chose respectability and to be classy and take the high road because I felt like that would make her be appropriate, the right kind of Black girl,” she shared. “Black girls aren’t allowed to be angry. Certainly not demonstratively angry and I muzzled her.”

Gabrielle added that, looking back, she would have “allowed her her full humanity, and part of being a full human is the ability to express rage when harmed.”

“When you don’t really allow yourself your full range of emotion and you muzzle your own emotions, it allows people to think, ‘Maybe what I did wasn’t that bad.’ I would have given her all the anger. I had muzzled her and made her this gracious, decent leader and I was still a villain in that movie,” she explained. “I did all that shape-shifting for a character, and then I realized I was doing that to myself too. I wasn’t allowing myself the full range of my humanity.”

If you didn’t see, Gabrielle was one of the major guests at the Met Gala last night.
