Troll Sports Writer Fat Shames Rihanna & No One Is Fucking Having It!

A writer for Barstool Sports is coming under fire for slamming Rihanna‘s weight and dubbing her as "fat" in a recent post this week!

Posting how the songstress is "looking like she’s in a sumo suit," Chris "Spags" Spagnuolo‘s sexist and offensive musings did NOT go over well with the Internet!

Because obviously!

While the article "Is Rihanna Going To Make Being Fat The Hot New Thing" has since been deleted by the site’s founder, Dave Portnoy AKA "Friend of Women", Chris’ tweet is still up:

Is Rihanna going to make being fat the hot new trend? https://t.co/DnFdi9AZy3 pic.twitter.com/r6jed6wRiQ

Twitter users have come to RiRi’s defense in the comments, blasting the troll’s misogynistic post:

You are misogynist, violent mouth predator

And maybe just to get more attention, Barstool Sports’ founder decided to publish an article about the "extremely minor controversy."

He 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 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."

So, it’s only fine to body shame women if you’re funny about it??

Dave ended his statement with:

"Just like how the risk wasn’t worth the reward in writing this, the risk isn’t worth the reward defending it either. That’s called being a leader. I make the decisions nobody else has the stomach to make."

What a brave, brave man! WOW. We should all be so thankful.
