People Dragged the Hell Out of This Sports Site for Calling Rihanna 'Fat'

"Congratulations, you played yourself."

Published June 1, 2017

Barstool Sports has got some damn nerve.

The sports website is being dragged to hell and back over one of its writers calling Rihanna "fat" in a recent blog post.

"So you see her pushing 180 and it’s a tough world to stomach," Barstool Sports's writer Chris “Spags” Spagnuolo penned about the bad gal. "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 fuck 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."

The site's founder, Dave Portnoy, later explained his decision to delete the blog post, but that didn't stop people from slamming the website for coming at RiRi.

  1. Here's Barstool Sports's Tweet and Accompanying Blog Post That Set The Internet Off

    Rihanna...fat!? Oh, you're gonna learn today!

  2. People immediately read Barstool's history with zero chill

    Actually, readers don't want that.

  3. Some fought Bartstool's Body Shaming With Body Shaming Tactics of their own

    Sheesh.

  4. Things really took a turn when the writer of the blog post, Chris 'Spags' Spagnuolo, claimed that he was getting 'cyberbullied'

    Bruh...

  5. Wait...did he say he was getting 'cyberbullied'?

    Come on, man. Hold this L.

  6. Needless to say, people weren't having it

    For real. You did this to yourself.

  7. What kind of reaction did he think he was going to get for this?

    You, sir, obviously didn't think this through.

  8. The severe dragging kept coming

    The nerve!

  9. And just for the record...

    All #FACTS!
