As you can tell by the Kelsey Williams photos she is beautiful. However thanks to a nasty blogger, whose name I will mention later, the Oklahoma City Thunder cheerleader’s weight has become a very unnecessary and ridiculous national debate.
CBS blogger Anna-Megan Raley, who used the pen name ‘Claire Crawford, decided to write an article about whether or not Kelsey was too pudgy to be a cheerleader. She wrote this sentence that has many, including myself, angered by her hateful comments.’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?’ The blogger went on to comment that the Houston Rockets, who were playing the Thunder, weren’t the only bad looking people on the court, ouch. If that wasn’t enough she conducted a poll in her article with three options ‘She has the perfect look to be an NBA cheerleader,’ or ‘She could use some tightening up in her midsection,’ or ‘She has no business wearing that outfit in front of people.’
The article has since been taken down and Raley’s Twitter, Linked and MySpace accounts have also been taken down, no doubt do to the backlash from her story. Seriously who is this chick to write such a negative article about someone else’s weight, especially when Williams looks freaking fabulous.
However for her part Williams, who has been and NBA cheerleader for more than three years has remained positive during this difficult time. She recently sent out this Tweet to her followers.
“We wouldn’t know what blessings were if we didn’t go through trials. Thank you to EVERYONE for the compassion and love today. I’m in awe.’
The Oklahoma City born and raised beauty sure does seem to be taking the hateful comments about her all in stride. Clearly she has other things to focus on, like her husband of little over a year Cole Williams.
When she is not on the court, Williams spends her time being the Fashion Editor and Co-Creative Director for Twenty Something Magazine. The online magazine that focuses on fashion, style, travel and arts as it pertains to people in their twenty’s. Williams also owns a company called Elite Events by Kelsey, which does event planning. Seriously this chick is one busy woman, who seems to be able to do it all. Just another reason to be on Team Kelsey.
It seems that Kelsey has spent her whole life in Oklahoma. She attended the University of Oklahoma where she studied Public Relations. During her time in college was and still is obviously given her cheerleader status, a dancer and choreographer.
The OKC Thunder cheerleading weight controversy regarding Kelsey Williams photos has caused an uproar among the masses. Also known as Kelsey Self Williams, the blonde beauty seems to have the world on her side right now after the nasty words that were written about her. My hat goes off to you Kelsey for handling this whole ridiculous thing in stride. You are freaking beautiful!
This is one hot topic and I want to know what you have to say about it, so me hear it.
