    If I was supervising this cheer team, I'd tell her she was too portly for the position, as well ...When you accept a position where 'looks' are a predominant feature of your job, then this type is scrutiny is fair game ...

    Therefore, this bloggers termination was unjustified



    CBS female sports blogger who called NBA cheerleader 'too chunky' FIRED after outrage over her 'hateful attack'


    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]


    A CBS blogger who wrote about the perceived weight problem of NBA Oklahoma City Thunder cheerleader, Kelsey Williams, has been fired after labeling her 'too chunky' to perform.

    Under the pen name 'Claire Crawford,' blogger and CBS Radio 610 digital content manager, Anna-Megan Raley, wrote last week: '[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?'

    After outraged commenters on the CBS Houstonsite called for Ms Raley to be fired, with many writing, 'This is a disgusting waste of an article,' News 9 has now reported that she has indeed been let go.

    Ms Raley's post — which was taken 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.'

    A poll asked visitors to the site to weigh in on Mrs WIlliams, who has cheered for three-years on the squad, and was pictured in the article 'at a bad angle' argued 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 Ms Raley's post was a 'vapid, poorly written, gossip girl blog entry.'
    She wrote in the comments section: 'You should be ashamed of yourself... This is disgusting... You're cruel. GROW UP.'

    Kathy Koehn Hessel added: 'I find this offensive and rude. How would you like this written about someone you know or care about?'
    Another commenter remarked: 'It's a hateful attack on a beautiful, talented, motivated woman, and articles like this contribute to the degradation of society, as well as the negative body image so many women struggle with BECAUSE of media outlets. Claire, shame on you.'

    I'd probably fuck her too, but the OP's question is, is she too chubby to be a cheerleader, and judging by the first two pictures, he may have a point
