After she was body-shamed — by a sports blogger nogal — who called her fat, the Man Down hitmaker had the last laugh after Chris “Spags” Spagnuolo lost his job with Barstool Sports indefinitely.
Feisty Riri shared a meme about rapper Gucci Mane and his changing body, just days after Spags, who called her “fat”, was suspended from his position.
The 29-year-old pop star captioned the weight loss meme, which showed a picture of a fuller Gucci from 2007 next to his current fitter self, with a sad crying face emoji.
The meme read: “If you can’t handle me at my 2007 Gucci Mane, you don’t deserve me at my 2017 Gucci Mane,” while showing side-by-side comparisons of the sexy hitmaker from both eras.
The post comes just four days after Spags was suspended from his job as a writer at Barstool Sports.
He came under fire after writing a 350-word rant about Rihanna, in which he called her dik and said the Umbrella singer “looked like she was wearing a sumo suit”.
The ill-conceived — and now deleted — opinion piece was called “Is Rihanna Going To Make Being Fat The Hot New Trend?”
Spags was slammed on social media.
Allure magazine tweeted: “Using misogyny & body-shaming women as a way to earn Twitter engagement is a pretty pathetic path to success.”
Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy issued a non-apology, basically throwing his writer under the bus and said the blog was “not a hill I’m willing to die on”.
Spagnuolo’s suspension was announced on 1 June, after Barstool editor Deke Zucker tweeted: “BREAKING NEWS: @chrisspags suspended from blogging indefinitely.”
