  • Rihanna responds to fat-shamers with meme

Taking to Instagram, Rihanna posted a Gucci Mane meme that featured a picture of the rapper in 2007 right next to a picture of the rapper in his current chiseled state.

The article, written by Chris Sprags, was titled "Is Rihanna Going to Make Being Fat the Hot New Trend?" and Sprags accused Rihanna of "enjoying that good room service a bit too long", and asked if she's going to inspire "all the hottest girls [to] look like the humans in Wall-E".

As if to sarcastically say "boohoo" without actually writing it, Rihanna topped off her post with a crying emoji caption.

Rihanna is a master of many things - reinventing footwear, winning the Met Gala, among others - but her signature Bad Gal move is a savage clapping back to nonsense.

In the 350-word story, Spagnuolo called Rihanna "fat" and said that the Umbrella singer "looked like she was wearing a sumo suit".

The offending article has since been removed from Barstool's website for, essentially, not being amusing enough.

In a statement posted on the website, Barstool Sports' founder David Portnoy explained that he has since suspended Spags and removed the article, but only because he thought it was not amusing enough.

"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 amusing as f*** and you better make it bullet proof". "I hired them because I think they are all legitimacy hilarious people" he added.
