Rihanna Receives Apology Following Foolish Weight Diss

Published: Wednesday 31st May 2017 by David

A low-end sports publication has apologised for calling the Pop superstar Rihanna “fat” after facing heat from critics who accused them of weight-shaming her.

Today, after facing the sharpest end of social media’s digital dagger, the publication issued an apology to the singer (on behalf of the dig’s original writer Spags) and those offended by his rude remark.

Its President shared…

If Big Cat or PFT or KFC or I write this blog I’ll defend it to the death. They have earned that trust and loyalty from me. I hired them because I think they are all legitimacy hilarious people. However as I’ve said many times Spags wasn’t originally hired to be a personality at Barstool. He should not be writing blogs that we as a company end up having to defend. And I’ve been doing this long enough to know that somewhere down the line this blog will be dug up again and used as an example of our extreme sexism. Frankly that’s not a hill I’m willing to die on. I’ll choose a different guy and a different blog to go to war for. 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.

Rihanna, who is currently enjoying a healthy foray into film, is yet to respond.

    I see no lie. Fat is fat. If you don’t want to be called fat, don’t be fat.

    I would say Rihanna’s popularity is close to Whitney Houston’s popularity during the 90s. Whitney was seen fat a few times and even performed on VH1 fat once too with a fat Bobby Brown. The weight will go away quick for Rihanna just like Whitney’s. I think singers should be allowed to gain weight during their down time if they want to. There is no need to write articles about her weight gain when everyone already knows it will be gone by the time her next album comes out.

    “Frankly that’s not a hill I’m willing to die on” is probably the best expression I’ve ever read, I can’t hahahahaha

    PS: What happened to the “listening to” feature (besides everything else that’s gone)? This comment section sucks now.
