Recently a picture surfaced of Rihanna looking a little thicker than what the world is used to seeing. Naturally, a barrage of online fat slander ensued, but once again she silenced her critics in typical Ri Ri fashion.

The Bajan singer took to her Instagram account to respond with a before and after Gucci Mane meme saying “If you can’t handle me at my 2007 Gucci Mane you don’t deserve me at my 2017 Gucci Mane”.

This non-response of a response seemed to be a hit with her fans with over 600k likes since it was posted.

Noted sports blog Bar Stool Sports caught the most backlash out of all the digital offenders for an article titled “Is Rihanna Going to Make Being Fat the Hot New Trend?”

Writer Chris Spags took the tone of write up into misogynistic territory by implying she had been resting on her laurels and “enjoying that good room service a bit too long.” The article has since been taken down with a formal statement issued by founder David Portnoy.

Considering Rihanna probably looks better than any woman these two Bar Stool Sports jokers have ever dealt with, it is safe to say that Ri Ri remains unbothered. Nice try though.
