Rihanna Shuts Down Fat-Shamers with Perfect Meme
Rihanna used humor and some serious shade to respond to some body-shaming that recently made its way around the Internet. The singer took to Instagram on Monday with a meme that some followers are calling the "perfect" response to being called out for her apparent weight gain.
Rapper Gucci Mane appears in two different body weights in a split photo with big block letters that says, "If you can't handle me at my 2007 Gucci Mane you don't deserve me at my 2017 Gucci Mane."
The post was read by fans as a tongue-in-cheek response to Spagnuolo's post last week, titled "Is Rihanna Going To Make Being Fat The Hot New Thing?" Spagnuolo's qualms with the Pop singer's weight gain saying,
"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."
Buzzfeed also published an article recently with a headline that read: "Rihanna's Getting Thick And Fans Are Rejoicing." They kicked off their piece by writing: "First let's get something straight: "Getting thick" is not an insult. I repeat, "getting thick" is NOT an insult."
The piece featured several pictures of a curvier Rihanna to back up its claim. But unlike Barstool Sports, Buzzfeed appeared to celebrate Rihanna's new figure.
CNN has reached out to Rihanna's camp and Barstool Sports who were not immediately available for comment.
