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.”
“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:

I’ve yet to come across one male employee at barstool that isn’t shaped like a lump of raw dough so congratulations you played yourself.
