The blogger, who calls herself Skinny Gurl, said that she was being “intentionally outrageous” when she wrote that the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model had “huge thighs, NO waist, big fat floppy boobs, and terrible body definition.”
It blasts the 20-year-old in a recent post for having “huge thighs, NO waist [and] big fat floppy boobs” while including pictures of a bikini-clad Upton sauntering down the runway in recent appearance on the catwalk, the New York Daily News reported.
The anonymous author of the blog “Skinny Gossip” has vowed to remove and then revamp the “Starving Tips of the Day” on her page, and to include resources for people suffering depression, eating disorders and compulsive self-injury.
“Guess who?! Yes, it’s the lovely Kate Upton, confidently lumbering up a runway like there’s a buffet at the end of it,” the anonymous poster writes.
“She looks thick, vulgar, almost pornographic – and she is a solid 30lb too heavy for this outfit,” the writer adds.
The buxom blonde rose to fame last year when she appeared on the cover of this year’s Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue.
Kate Upton’s 34-25-35 statistics is making ripples in the fashion industry, pushing aside the popular claim that only size-zero women can sizzle in bikini.
According to an online poll, she has the world’s best bum. The cover girl for Sports Illustrated’s 2012 Swimsuit Issue won a fifth of the 24,000 votes in the Sun poll to beat reality TV star Kim Kardashian into second place.
Kate Upton has said that she understands why her male fans like her, but insisted that her penchant for sexy bikini photos is simply “like any job.”
Upton has taken the modeling world by storm since landing the coveted Sports Illustrated Swim cover and now boasts nearly 400,000 followers on twitter.
“I grew up in Florida riding horses, so the majority of my life I was either in boots or a bathing suit,” the New York Post quoted her as telling GQ magazine.
“I understand why my male followers like me … It’s like any job. You find your strengths and play them up,” she said.
