Gabrielle Union, star of film and television, has been showing off pieces of her collaboration with New York & Company.

The clothes have a wide range of styles from comfy athleisure to some lovely dresses and skirts.

Union has been posting photos to her Instagram, most recently expressing her trepidation at some unfinished projects.

In showing off one of these new dresses on her Instagram, though, it appears she offended the sensibilities of one of her followers.

In the comment section, a follower responded to the photo with:

“Can you dress your age please”

Many couldn’t quite grasp what the commenter was talking about.

Did she mean Union’s pairing of a dress with the sneakers? How does one qualify dressing their age?

Most importantly, where do you get off trying to tell a 46-year-old woman how to dress?

Union herself responded sarcastically.

Gabrielle Union is best known for movies such as Bring it On and Bad Boys 2. She’s been in the public eye as of late, sharing her difficult journey to motherhood.

After experiencing several miscarriages, she successfully had a daughter through a surrogate.

Union has been having to unnecessarily defend herself as of late. Earlier this month, she had to explain that she did in fact understand basic hygiene after some concerned fans tried to tell her not to kiss her baby.

Another time, the internet tried to shame her for sharing a photo of skin-to-skin contact with her newborn. Union used a surrogate to carry her child and the internet thought she was trying to frame it as herself giving birth.

But Union has no time for nonsense. She’s too busy living her best life.
