The INSIDER Summary:

  • Barstool Sports blogger Chris Spagnuolo recently wrote a post that fat-shamed Rihanna.
  • He wrote that the singer and actress looked like “she’s in a sumo suit.”
  • Rihanna’s fans slammed the post on Twitter and celebrated the singer’s body.
  • The viral post was deleted shortly after being published on May 30, but only because Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy thought it wasn’t “funny” enough to defend.

Satirical blogger Chris Spagnuolo is under fire for writing a viral post entitled, “Is Rihanna Going To Make Being Fat The Hot New Trend?”

Spagnuolo who also goes by the pen name “Spags”  took jabs at the singer and actress, claiming that she looks like she’s wearing a “sumo suit.”

His controversial write-up appeared on Barstool Sports on May 30, and has since been deleted. However, Glamour reports that this excerpt can still be found online:

“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 f–k 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.”

Rihanna’s fans slammed the article on Twitter:
