In a widely celebrated Instagram, the Barbadian singer responded to social media attacks on her recent weight gain.
Chris Spags of Barstool Sports blogged that he feared other women would follow Rihanna’s weight gain “trend” and went as far as to include an “In Memoriam” for the singer’s more slender frame, said complex.com.

“Rihanna doesn’t seem too fazed, however, and she took a break from owning the NBA Finals to lean into the critique by posting a hilarious Gucci Mane meme on her Instagram page,” complex said.
“The pop star has always been comfortable living her life and shrugging off criticism from detractors, and this situation is no different. Rihanna doesn’t have to remain silent in the face of trash talk from the supermarket store-brand version of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and using Gucci Mane as a comparison also highlights some of the inherent sexism in this situation.”
And what happened too blogger Spags?
He was fired — for being unfunny.
