Sports blogger who fat shamed Rihanna suspended

This fat-shaming sports writer will not be going to "work, work, work, work, work" for quite some time.

A sports blogger blogger who called singer Rihanna "fat" in a bizarre rant has been suspended.

Barstool Sports writer, Chris 'Spags' Spagnuolo, recently wrote a post titled, 'Is Rihanna Going To Make Being Fat The Hot New Trend?'. 

The post, which has since been deleted, criticised a loose-fitting outfit the 'Work' hitmaker wore to dinner in May, saying she 'looked like she was wearing a sumo suit.'

Several magazines, including Cosmopolitan, publicly criticised the ill-fated piece, and the writer behind it. 

Barstool Sports was also slammed, and labelled "a garbage sports site".

The site's owner was quick to take action, and soon announced that Chris had been suspended. 

But Chris is not going down without a fight.

He has since started a "Free Spags" hashtag on his social media accounts.

Unfortunately for him, no-one seems to care!

Rihanna appears to be throwing some shade at Chris this week.

She posted a before and after picture of Gucci Mane's weight loss on her Instagram account. 

The picture's captioned read: "If you can't handle me at my 2007 Gucci Mane, you don't deserve me at my 2017 Gucci Mane". 

We think it is safe to say that Chris cannot stand under Rihanna's umbrella (ella, ella, eh, eh, eh).
