R&B singer Avant found himself trending on Twitter Sunday morning for an unfortunate reason. After a photo of the "Separated" singer on stage during a recent performance floated online, showing him looking a big bigger than usual, folks had a lot to say about it.
Here's the pic that started all this conversation, along with some of the rude — and supportive — things people have to say about it:

Meanwhile, another photo from the same event proves that the singer may have just been the victim of a bad angle:
Hopefully Avant is taking all this in stride and the internet figures out that body-shaming is never okay.
