CBS affiliate KWTV-DT/OKLAHOMA CITY is reporting that CBS RADIO Sports KILT-A (SPORTS RADIO 610)/HOUSTON has fired the blogger who posted about an OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER cheerleader's weight.
A post credited to "CLAIRE CRAWFORD," reportedly a pseudonym for CBSHOUSTON.COM Digital Content Manager ANNA-MEGAN RALEY, posted a picture of THUNDER Girl KELSEY WILLIAMS and asked if WILLIAMS is "too chunky" to be a THUNDER cheerleader, writing that "the ROCKETS looked terrible in Game 1, but some say they weren’t the only bad-looking people on the court," saying that people had criticized WILLIAMS for "having 'pudginess' around her waistline" but concluding, "she's beautiful." "Besides … not every man likes women to be toothpick skinny. In fact, I’d say most men prefer a little extra meat on her bones," "CRAWFORD" wrote. "Am I right?"
The APRIL 22nd post was criticized for raising the weight issue, and KWTV reports that the writer has been dismissed.
