Rihanna Claps Back at Internet Body Shamers Who Claim She’s “Too Fat”
Rihanna might be many things, but one thing that you would never call Rihanna is “fat”… but that’s exactly what some people did on social media recently. Fortunately, the clap-back queen, once again, shut down Internet trolls in the best way possible, and we’re ALL here for it.
Instagram user @Robynsbish runs a fanpage dedicated to all things Rihanna (a.k.a. Robyn Fenty). The fanpage recently posted an old video of Rihanna shopping for snacks with her BFF, Melissa Forde, and in the video we see her living her best life with her hands full of bags of Hot Cheetos, Apple Jacks, Pringles, and, well… you get the point — the girl got her snacks.
The post caught the attention of none other than Rihanna, as the video was accompanied with a captioned that read, “Everybody who calling rob too fat @mdollas11 telling you what to do in this video K !! #mindyourown #eatallyouwant @badgalriri i got you like melissa.”
Some users left harsh comments on the photo regarding Rihanna’s weight, when RiRi slid into the comments section and commented, “Somebody called me too fat?” along with three cry-laughing emojis. She clearly isn’t worried about what the haters say, but boy, do we do love when she responds.
However, this isn’t the first time the “Work” singer has been forced to clap back at unwanted opinions. A reporter at Barstool Sports recently published an article titled, “Is Rihanna Going to Make Being Fat the Hot New Trend?” She clapped back with a simple Gucci Mane meme that perfectly summed up her thoughts and had everyone in tears laughing.
Another website came under fire recently for yet another shady headline, and Twitter was not having it. SandraRose.com posted an article with the headline, “Plus-Size Singer Rihanna Stuns At ‘Valerian’ Premiere.” Immediately, fans started reposting and commenting on the article to shame the author for referring to Rihanna as plus-size:
Rihanna isn't plus size and its dangerous to claim that. It can cause severe body image issues and eating disorders in others. pic.twitter.com/X3srgCdH2K

Keep in mind, people weren’t shaming being plus-sized — they were more so referring to the fact that Rihanna was labeled as ‘plus-sized’ after simply looking healthy and happy.
But one thing is for sure: We could definitely use a BFF like Melissa Forde with us at all times!
