(DAILYMAIL) — A CBS blogger who commented on the perceived weight problem of NBA Oklahoma City Thunder cheerleader, Kelsey Williams, has come under fire for labeling her ‘too chunky’ to perform.

Under the pen name ‘Claire Crawford,’ blogger Anna-Megan Raley wrote: ‘[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?’

Outraged commenters on the CBS Houston site called for Ms Raley to be fired, with many writing: ‘This is a disgusting waste of an article.’

Ms Raley’s post — which was 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.’
