One week ago, writer Robbie Tripp posted a message on Instagram that started with, “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.’ ”
A post from a guy saying he loves his pretty wife (fashion blogger / business owner Sarah Tripp) is standard fare on the internet, but then Buzzfeed picked up the story and titled it “People Are Applauding This Man For Celebrating His Wife’s Curves On The Internet,” ensuring people would get angry and point out they’re not applauding it.

And some didn’t believe any of this.
