Gabrielle Union has a name and she wants to be referred to that way!
Union and her husband, NBA player Dwyane Wade, recently donated $200,000 to March For Our Lives, an upcoming gun control rally.
While the Being Mary Jane actress was proud of her good deed, she wasn't too pleased when a local Miami news station, WSVN, referred to her as Dwyane Wade's wife and not by her actual name.

"@DwyaneWade, wife donates $200,000 to student-ran gun control rally," WSVN wrote. Union immediately took to Twitter to call out the station for its treatment to her.
Fans Defend Gabrielle
The 45-year-old wasn't the only one that threw shade at the outlet. Fans quickly came to Union's defense after they saw her tweet to the station. Union's followers claimed that the station had more than enough space to include her name and that there was no excuse to not include her name as she is a well-known actress.
Long sigh. You have enough characters in the tweet to say her name. C'monnnnn! @itsgabrielleu GABRIELLE UNION, author of We're Going To Need More Wine, Being Mary Jane actress, star of upcoming movie Breaking In. There!! See! And I still have characters left. — SoujournerDaTruth (@Bukalove04) March 12, 2018
Keep the consistency. Y'all know who @itsgabrielleu is, get your writers together.https://t.co/sE36WyPVVX — Jane (@A_maan_duuh) March 12, 2018
Since the internet read WSVN for filth, the station has decided to apologize to the Think Like A Man Too star.
The station told Union's fans that they completely agree with their statements and that they were going to speak to their writer.
Union And Wade Support Gun Control
The couple's decision to donate to March For Our Lives comes almost a month after the deadly shooting that occurred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on Feb. 14.
As previously reported, the tragic shooting left 17 teachers and teenagers dead.
Fans of both Union and Wade know that they live in South Florida, so the massacre hit pretty close to home for the two and Wade also has children that go to school in the state.
On the day of the shooting, Union took to Twitter express her frustration and despair towards the incident and stated that this should no longer be anyone's reality.
Wade also tweeted that he and Oklahoma City Thunder basketball player, Carmelo Anthony, would join the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and other communities as they march in honor of gun violence.
