A TV station has been slammed mercilessly for referring to Gabrielle Union as Dwayne Wade’s wife.

WSVN 7 News reported on Twitter that Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union donated $200,000 to student-run gun control rally. But in reporting the news, they reduced Gabrielle Union, an actress and successful woman in her own right, to just a wife, as though she has no identity of her own.

This angered a lot of people and they called out the TV station and reminded them that Gabrielle Union was already a big name long before Dwayne Wade became known.
