It’s no tip that a bad gal Rihanna is a trendsetter. Whether she’s rocking her badass Egyptian enchantress tattoo or embracing a #FreeTheNipple movement, RiRi’s ballsy looks never disappoint. But Rihanna’s impact is some-more than skin deep: she’s fiercely confident and gives 0 effs what anyone thinks of her—and encourages others to do a same.

On May 30, sports blog Barstool Sports posted a disgusting—and since-deleted—critique of Rihanna’s body. Writer Chris Spags abashed a Barbadian thespian for appearing to have gained a few pounds and pragmatic that she’s going to make weight benefit trendy.

Because, of course, there’s zero some-more interesting than a lady gaining weight—specifically a lady so often referred to as an assertive man-eating sex symbol. Heaven forbid RiRi go opposite a standing quo and—*GASP*—be OK with her shape, or even some-more shocking, be happy with it. Not each tellurian equates slimness with beauty.

As expected, a black and annual Met Gala slayer is carrying nothing of it. She responded to a critique with a elementary (and hilarious) meme featuring rapper Gucci Mane during dual opposite weights.

To no one’s surprise, fans were super rapid to come to Rihanna’s defence.

Among a fan outcry were dozens of Tweets in support of her weight gain—and TBH, that isn’t much better than condemning it.

The bottom line is goal doesn’t unequivocally matter when we criticism on women’s bodies. It’s good that RiRi superfans came to her defence, though because did they have to in a initial place? Compliment or not, a woman’s figure is nothing of a damn business. So, thanks Barstool Sports for unintentionally igniting a super critical conversation—even if we had to continue your horrible comments to get here.
