Rihanna has responded to a blogger who accused the Barbadian beauty of being overweight. The We Found Love had recently made headlines for her recent weight gain.
Chris Spagnolo wrote a body-shaming article for the Barstool Sports website titled: "Is Rihanna going to make being fat the hot new trend?"
In the scathing piece, which has now been deleted, he wrote: "So you see her pushing 180 and it's a tough world to stomach. With all the fat acceptance and 'love me as I am' crowd, there's definitely a world where I could see chicks see Rihanna make some strong 'I don't give a fuck I just love pizza' quote that goes viral and bam we're in a world where all the hottest girls look like the humans in Wall-E. And just in time for summer too."
"A world of ladies shaped like the Hindenburg loaded into one-piece bathing suits may be on the horizon now that Rihanna is traipsing around out there looking like she's in a sumo suit. It's a dangerous precedent and you may want to start adjusting your porn browsing to primarily BBW porn to condition yourself to this dystopian future we now face," he added.
The article was heavily criticised on social media accounts. Following that, Rihanna took to her Instagram account, and shared a meme showing rapper Gucci Mane at two different weights. The post read: "If you can't handle me at my 2007 Gucci Mane, you don't deserve me at my 2017 Gucci Mane."
Spagnuolo, whose nickname is Spags, got suspended from his job for his article. He later revealed that he was cyberbullied by Rihanna's fans.
