Kate Upton Weight Criticism Leads to Backlash, Threats For "Skinny Gurl" Blogger

by at . Comments

A blogger who attacked Kate Upton’s sexy figure, likening the curvy model to a cow and a pig, is facing severe backlash for her harsh comments.

The unnamed female blogger, who acknowledges preferring the "skinny aesthetic," trashed Upton in a July 8 post on the website "Skinny Gurl."

She has since been deluged with angry emails and threatened with rape and death ... none of which is cool, but neither were her initial remarks.

Kate Upton Curves

The blogger wrote that Upton, during a June modeling event, was "confidently lumbering up the runway like there's a buffet at the end of it."

She also called her a "little piggie" with "huge thighs, NO waist, big fat floppy boobs, and terrible body definition" and likened Kate to a cow.

Since then, fans and fashion world insiders have denounced the blogger for calling Kate Upton too fat and risen to the 20-year-old's defense.

Lesley Jane Seymour, editor-in-chief of More magazine, said:

"Running a site where you actually praise women for staying emaciated, than attacking someone who has a normal body, I mean, you've got issues."

"She's laughing all the way to the bank," supermodel/author Carol Alt said of Upton. "I would just say keep your end up and keep moving forward."

Hacker group Anonymous - apparently big Upton fans, or just bored, launched a cyber attack against Skinny Gurl, forcing her to change web hosts.

Its "Starving Tip of the Day" has since been taken down, and the site now claims it "explicitly prohibits the glorification or promotion of self-harm."

Explaining the idea behind the site - which she says is "pro-skinny" but not "pro-ana" (for pro-anorexic) - the still-anonymous blogger wrote:

"As a thin person, I am annoyed by our double-standards around weight. For example, people think nothing of telling a thin woman - to their face, in front of an entire group of people - how skinny they are and even to suggest what they should eat."

"But I've never seen the reverse happen to an overweight woman."

"There's nothing wrong with saying skinny is beautiful, just like there's nothing wrong with saying curvy is beautiful, or red hair is beautiful, or anything else someone happens to find appealing. It's an opinion, and we're all entitled to them."

"I take personal pride in keeping myself thin (since people keep asking: I'm about 5'7? and try to stay around 100 lbs)," she wrote.

She won't reveal her name as she's in "a real-world profession with clients and partners and this is a controversial subject, even in places like NYC and Hollywood."

As they say, haters gonna hate, lovers gonna admire Kate Upton pictures.

What do you think of Kate Upton's body?

I went to this girls website and she pretty much bashes lots of models and actresses. U honestly get the feeling she couldn't hack it in the model world so she has to hate on all the ones who did. She calls models out for weight gain and even talked shit about hayden panaterra? Can't spell the last name because she was eating a mini cupcake. This girl must really be bored or trying to keep herself busy so she never has to eat.

Completely agree. She is just as much of a fame attention grabbing whore as the Kardashians or any of the rest of them. Has nothing special or talented about her... She probably slept with someone at THG too...

I agree with Mel. It's okay for THG to bash Snooki, but if someone even so as touches Upton's ass, THG is up in arms. Why? Both are talentless hacks who worked their ways up by sleeping around with people. So why so partial with Upton?

The hypocrisy of this site blows my mind. Keep bashing Snooki, the Kardashians and Chris Brown and calling their supporters idiots and psychopaths (i.e. when Chris Brown supporters threatened critics with violence) while shitting on another website for not worshipping your sacred cow.

I totally agree that there are much more fit, better looking girls than this Kate Upton. The girl loves posting youtube videos of herself dancing in a barely there bikini. Models are ususally thin and toned and do not photo shop to look good. Kate Upton needs major photo shop to look remotely like a 'model'. She is not built well, she is not toned, she is not thin. I am not sure how she made the front page of SI... Even the Victoria's Secret casting director said she would never cut it. I know everyone in this country is getting fatter and fatter, but models are typically held to a higher standard. I can guarantee Kate Upton would never cut it in Europe.

I am 5'7. At my heaviest I was 180 lbs but now weigh 118. I am too thin and wear a size zero. How does this anonymous blogger by clothing, the kids dept? The only thing I will say, when you're too thin everybody assumes you don't eat. I have a thyroid problem. No one has the right to call someone fat. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

That chick is psycho! I'm 5'7" and weigh 122 and I'm a size 2. If I dropped 22 pounds, I would be SKELETAL and a size zero would fall right off me! Does she allow herself one piece of lettuce per day? Kate is gorgeous and has beautiful curves. She is in NO way a "piggie with huge thighs". For someone to say that about her, this blogger has to be really insecure or jealous.
