A blogger has sparked outrage for accusing Rihanna of being overweight and arguing the singer could encourage other women to gain weight.

Chris Spagnuolo, whose nickname is Spags, claimed the eight-time Grammy Award winner looked like she was in a “sumo suit” and “pushing 180”.
The journalist, who writes for sports and men’s lifestyle blog Barstools Sport, said the Barbados-born singer’s long-standing role as a fashion trendsetter and tastemaker could mean the “hottest girls look like the humans in Wall-E and just in time for summer”.
Wall-E is a dystopian sci-fi animation film which explores consumerism, climate change and obesity, where the humans are so overweight that they can barely move.
Writing in his fiercely criticised blog post “Is Rihanna Going to Make Being Fat the Hot New Trend?” Mr Spagnulo, who calls himself “Straight Spags” on Twitter, said: “It looks to me like Rihanna is rocking some new high key thiccness [sic].
“And based on what I've seen, that means it's time to worry if you're not a guy who fancies himself a chubby chaser.”
He added: “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."
The remarks about Rihanna, one of the best-selling artists of all time who has carved out a dedicated and eclectic fan base over the years, immediately prompted outrage on Twitter. Critics heaped praise on the singer’s body and argued the comments were a “joke“, "cruel”, and “offensive”.
