The Internet Has Turned On The Man Who Went Viral For Praising His ‘Curvy’ Wife
ICYMI, Robbie Tripp (@tripp) went viral last week with an upload of an Instagram praising his "curvy" partner.
|| I love this woman and her curvy body. As a teenager, I was often teased by my friends for my attraction to girls on the thicker side, ones who were shorter and curvier, girls that the average (basic) bro might refer to as "chubby" or even "fat." Then, as I became a man and started to educate myself on issues such as feminism and how the media marginalizes women by portraying a very narrow and very specific standard of beauty (thin, tall, lean) I realized how many men have bought into that lie. For me, there is nothing sexier than this woman right here: thick thighs, big booty, cute little side roll, etc. Her shape and size won't be the one featured on the cover of Cosmopolitan but it's the one featured in my life and in my heart. There's nothing sexier to me than a woman who is both curvy and confident; this gorgeous girl I married fills out every inch of her jeans and is still the most beautiful one in the room. Guys, rethink what society has told you that you should desire. A real woman is not a porn star or a bikini mannequin or a movie character. She's real. She has beautiful stretch marks on her hips and cute little dimples on her booty. Girls, don't ever fool yourself by thinking you have to fit a certain mold to be loved and appreciated. There is a guy out there who is going to celebrate you for exactly who you are, someone who will love you like I love my Sarah. || photo cred: @kaileehjudd
What was initially well-received as a message of body-positivity and challenging of traditional forms of beauty, has now quickly turned into criticism.
Many people, including plus-size model Tess Holliday, have called him out for thinking he deserves praise for “doing the bare minimum”. Check out her insta-post below:
But she's not the only one on the internet calling him out, check out some of these tweets:

That Tripp guy talks about his girlfriend the same way I describe my ideal breakfast croissant.
