Gabourey Sidibe And Roland Martin are not happy about the George Zimmerman vs. DMX celebrity boxing match and  are speaking out against it.

Stars gathered Saturday in hollywood to celebrate their nominations at the NAACP Image Awards Nominees Luncheon. The Image awards celebrates outstanding achievements of people of color in the arts as well as those individuals who promote social justice.

Because this was one of the main focuses of the event HipHollywood wanted to know what attendees thought about the George Zimmerman vs. DMX celebrity boxing match. Although news went out on Saturday stating that the fight was canceled, HipHollywood has learned from people close to event that the fight promoter has not officially thrown in the towel.

Gabourey Sidibe, the 30-year-old star of Precious, was almost speechless, “I don’t understand why it’s necessary and it isn’t. Its a bad thing to do, don’t do it,” she said shaking her head.

Rowland Martin, the host of “News One Now” was more vocal about his opinion. “That is uterly shamefull. George Zimmerman is not a celebrity he is a murderer. That is exactly what he is and DMX should have some sense of respect for Trayvon Martin and his family to say ‘absolutely no’ to bring attention to this shameful individual.” The TV One commentator followed up with this observation, “So its interesting how he was so concerned about being in hiding and about his safety, yet he wants to be in a celebrity boxing match, he is not a celebrity. So I wounder how America would feel if OJ Simpson was out of jail and decided to box somebody? I doubt that they would be all happy…”

Michael Rapaport came under fire earlier this month for slamming Janet Jackson Appreciation Day which was on Super Bowl Sunday. But now, he is speaking a slightly different tune.

On February 4th, as Janet fans used social media to praise the singer, Michael took to Twitter to do what he does best: Talk mess.

“Can anybody crying for Janet Jackson right now tell me the last Janet Jackson song that was popping,” he wrote. “Motherf*cka’s wanna make nothing something 24/7/365 & Super Bowl Sunday.”

Michael, however, is slightly backing down from his aggressive words. HipHollywood caught up with the actor during the premier of Shot In The Dark, to discuss not only his ability to talk “sh*t,” but being attacked by Black Twitter.

“I love Janet Jackson, respect Janet Jackson,” he told us exclusively. “The context of what I said is that Janet Jackson isn’t popping now like she was popping in the 80’s, 90’s. Doesn’t mean she’s not an icon.”

Rapaport, who is known to stir up on some drama with his Twitter antics, then added about being a sh*t talker: “I’m proud of the way I talk sh*t, I’m the MVP of talking trash. I can give it as good as I can take it.”
