Source – A CBS blogger who commented on the perceived weight problem of NBA Oklahoma City Thunder cheerleader, Kelsey Williams, has come under fire for labeling her 'too chunky' to perform. Under the pen name 'Claire Crawford,' blogger Anna-Megan Raley wrote: '[Mrs Williams] has been criticized by some folks in [Oklahoma] for having “pudginess” around her waistline… Is this chick “too chunky” to be a cheerleader?' Outraged commenters on the CBS Houston site called for Ms Raley to be fired, with many writing: 'This is a disgusting waste of an article.' Ms Raley's post — which was down from the website, but is able to be retrieved through a web cache — also noted that the Rockets, who were playing the Thunders, 'weren’t the only bad-looking people on the court.' Mrs WIlliams, who has cheered for three-years on the squad, was pictured in the article 'at a bad angle' wrote some commenters. Three choices were offered: 'She has the perfect look to be an NBA cheerleader,' or 'She could use some tightening up in her midsection,' and finally, 'She has no business wearing that outfit in front of people.' Ashton Foster, a graduate of New York Film Academy, remarked that Miss Raley's post was a 'vapid, poorly written, goosip girl blog entry.' She wrote in the comments section: 'You should be ashamed of yourself… This is disgusting… You're cruel. GROW UP.'
How about everyone in Oklahoma getting on their high horse about this one? Acting all outraged like this is some kind of horrific incident. Hey all this blogger chick did was ask if this cheerleader was fat. So what? In case you haven't noticed, cheerleaders are there to be objectified. Your supposed to look at their bodies and judge them on their physical attributes. What, you think everyone watches them because they have great rhymes? Stellar pyramids? Awesome pom-pom moves? Of course not. Being skinny with good tits, a nice ass and a pretty face is all that matters. And it's important that we continue to monitor these things just like this blogger did. Always keeping tabs on waistlines and shit. She wasn't being insulting. She was doing a loyal service to the fans. You look away for a second and a fatty could snake their way into the cheering squad. Last thing any team wants.
