We all have our moments where our weight fluctuates back and forth. One year we could look our best, working out and eating well. Another year we could let ourselves go a little, and not work so hard.
Celebrities have it pretty bad. With people judging them at all times, it’s pretty noticeable when they have that month or year where they gain a couple of pounds. People could either love it, or they can be really harsh.
Rihanna is currently in that exact situation, but she’s not letting it get to her in the slightest. She was recently photographed while attending the 2017 NBA Finals at ORACLE Arena on June 1st, 2017. People noticed that she was looking a little plump.
The singer has been subjected to some serious scrutiny about her weight after showing off a curvier shape recently.
Late last week a sports blog published a piece titled “Is Rihanna Going to Make Being Fat the Hot New Trend?”
After seeing that, Rihanna hit back at the fat-shaming comments made about her with a touch of characteristic humor.
On Monday, June 5th, the 29-year-old finally addressed the chatter by sharing a meme and it’s pretty hilarious.
The meme is of rapper Gucci Mane in two pictures, showing him before and after his stint in jail at a significantly different weight. The caption makes it even better.
It reads “If you can’t handle me at my 2007 Gucci Mane, you don’t deserve me at my 2017 Gucci Mane”. She also added an upset fact emoji in the caption for her Instagram post.
In the now-deleted article posted on Barstool Sports, Chris Spags wrote that Rihanna has been “enjoying room service a bit too long” and that she’s going to inspire women to “look like the humans in Wall-E.”
A statement posted by the blog’s founder, David Portnoy, explains that he’s not only suspended Sprags but he’s also completely removed the post.
But the only reason he removed it was because he believed that it wasn’t funny enough. After the story was shared on Twitter, people were not too happy with the owner of the blog.
He was met with widespread criticism and accusations of misogyny. According to Us Weekly, the backlash forced Barstool Sports founder David Portnoy to remove the offensive article.
Portnoy wrote: “To be honest I don’t think the blog was as bad as many are making it out to be, but I’ll tell you this. It wasn’t that funny either.”
He continued saying: “There are just certain topics that you better nail if you’re gonna write about them because you know they are not button issues for us.”
