Few days earlier, she posted a Gucci Mane meme in response to a recent article posted by bro-favorite site Barstool Sports, titled, "Is Rihanna Going To Make Being Fat The Hot New Thing?"
The author of the Barstool Sports article, Chris Spags, slammed Rihanna for "enjoying that good room service a bit too long" and claimed that the singer is now "pushing 180."
Among the article's sweeping insults to RiRi and women in general was the following statement:
"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...A world of ladies shaped like the Hindenburg loaded into one-piece bathing suits may be on the horizon now that Rihanna is traipsing around out there looking like she's in a sumo suit."
But receiving even more backlash than the original post which has since been deleted by the site's founder, Dave Portnoy is Spags' apology, if one can even call it that.
"To be honest I don't think the blog was as bad as many are making it out to be, but I'll tell you this. It wasn't that funny either and I could have told you with absolute certainty that feminists would hate it and use it as an example of 'there goes Barstool being Barstool again.' There are just certain topics that you better nail if you're gonna write about them because you know they are hot button issues for us. So if you're gonna blog about Rihanna gaining weight you better be funny as f-ck and you better make it bullet proof. This line right here? 'A world of ladies shaped like the Hindenburg loaded into one-piece bathing suits may be on the horizon now that Rihanna is traipsing around out there looking like she's in a sumo suit.' Well that's neither."PS: Rihanna looked happier than ever to show some skin on Monday night in Miami, where she was seen on the set of a music video rocking a totally see-through top.
"If you can't handle me at my 2007 Gucci Mane, then you don't deserve me at my 2017 Gucci Mane," was written above the side-by-side images of the rapper Rihanna posted to her Instagram.
