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.

Get a clue. She can say anything she wants to say and not worry about repercussions from hypocritical whining children. Threats of rape and physical violence show what a messed up world this is.

That's the worst poll ever.
What about, "She's gorgeous, I wouldn't change a thing."
Sorry, not the hottest woman ever, but she's beautiful.
