Too fat for cheerleading?

Hello everyone!

It seems that again, someone made a comment about someone who really isn't all that fat being "too big".  A while back, a blogger claimed that model Kate Upton was too big to model, now this time a cheerleader from the basketball team Oklahoma City Thunder is being talked about as being "too fat".

Cheerleader Kelsey Williams (pictured) is the latest in the "too fat" talk.  However, some people say it was one unflattering picture of her that got people talking.

She was recently criticized for her weight by CBS Houston blogger Claire Crawford.
Crawford caused controversy after she asked readers if Williams was "too chunky" to cheer. "[Williams] has been criticized by some folks in [Oklahoma] for having 'pudginess' around her waistline," she wrote. "Is this chick 'too chunky' to be a cheerleader?"
"But if she's comfortable wearing that tiny outfit and dancing for NBA fans, then good for her," Crawford said. "Besides . . . not every man likes women to be toothpick skinny. I'd say most men prefer a little extra meat on her bones." 

To me, I think she looks fine.  She is able to wear the tiny outfit and nothing on her hangs over or anything.  People actually reacted negatively to the blog post calling it "offensive and disgusting".
