Twenty-nine-year-old Rihanna has been fat-shamed online after putting on weight for a role. Of course that actors are required to go to certain lengths for their craft so one blogger decided to shame the Barbados-born star for the way her body looks. Some people will never learn.
He even said that she is a bad example for the other girls who can get inspired and gain weight too. People on Twitter were rightfully disgusted.
Barstool Sports writer Chris ‘Spags’ Spagnuolo asked the question that literally no one wanted to hear: Is Rihanna going to make being fat the hot new trend?
Concluding that she looks like she’s wearing a sumo suit, Spags went on to “honor” the world with his 350 words of insufferable, totally unwanted and never required opinions, adding that she must be “enjoying the good room service for a little too long.”
Just, take a deep breath and read this:
Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy later issued a statement so half-arsed it might just be more offensive than his writer’s misogynistic magnum opus.
“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 and I could have told you with absolute certainty that feminists would hate it and use it as an example of ‘there goes Barstool being Barstool again.”
“There are just certain topics that you better nail if you’re gonna write about them because, you know, they are hot button issues for us. So if you’re gonna blog about Rihanna gaining weight you better be funny as fuck and you better make it bullet proof.”
You heard it right.
