As incidents across the nation shed light on the complexities of race in America today, Oscar-nominated actress Gabourey Sidibe is sharing her own experience with racism.

"As a black actress, I have a few social media accounts and every single day I deal with racist comments," Sidibe told PEOPLE at Monday night's New York City premiere of the second season of Hulu's Difficult People.

"Not a day goes by that I don't have to block someone from calling me a fat n----," the actress revealed. "So I have to say, I'm not surprised by some of those bad reactions [to what happened last week]."

The stars headed up to the Top of the Standard to celebrate the upcoming premiere of Girls, HBO's racy new comedy about four twentysomething women finding their way in New York City. And it was a glamorous cocktail party that was a far cry from the sometimes challenging Brooklyn living depicted on the witty new show.

Danes shared a moment with the show's stars Jemima Kirke and Zosia Mamet while Lena Dunham, the new show's writer, director and lead actress, hung out at her private table, chatting with Apatow and greeting well-wishers such as John Cameron Mitchell with a friendly handshake. At one point, Dunham headed to Le Bain, just across the hall from the main party space, where she chatted with Boardwalk Empire's Steve Buscemi, who was enjoying a plate of food from the nearby buffet.
