When it comes to blasting the critics, Rihanna has no shame; which is why on Monday afternoon, the singer took to social media to do just that.
Lately, Badgalriri has been getting hit with negative comments about her weight — mostly Internet trolls calling her out for adding on some pounds. Ri seems to be taking the constant chatter to heart, so she took a moment to call out the body shamers.
The singer posted an Instagram image of rapper Gucci Mane from 2007 versus 2017 to get her point across. Now for those of you who don’t know, Gucci used to be a tad fluffy around the belly. But when he was released from prison last year, he came out looking a like brand new man.
The meme read: “If you can’t handle me at my 2007 Gucci Mane, you don’t deserve me at my 2017 Gucci Mane.” The Barbadian beauty simply stamped the caption with a tear face emoji.
The good news is, despite the constant body shaming, Rihanna isn’t letting the trolls stop her from doing what she loves most.
On Monday night, the pop star was photographed in Miami filming scenes for her upcoming music video with DJ Khaled. In one scene, you see the 28-year-old frolicking around in a colorful two-piece Balenciaga ensemble. In another, the star shows off her shoulders in a white two-piece get up.
Last week, sports reporter Chris “Spags” Spagnuolo of Barstool Sports came under fire for writing a full length article about Rihanna’s weight. In the piece titled ‘Is Rihanna Going To Make Being Fat The Hot New Trend,’ Spags suggested that “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.”
