Rihanna fires back at body shamers

R&B queen Rihanna responded to a writer from Barstool Sports who body shamed her by headlining his article, ““Is Rihanna Going to Make Being Fat the Hot New Trend?” While angry critics had their own responses to the controversial story, which has since been removed, Riri had the best snap back by posting a meme on her Instagram of a thicker Gucci Mane from 2007, next to a much thinner recent version, saying, “If you can’t handle me at my 2007 Gucci Mane, you don’t deserve me at my 2017 Gucci Mane.” You go girl !
