The Dirty Blogger Nik Richie Calls Victoria’s Secret Model Kate Upton Fat

The fat-hate is intense today. First we had Thierry Mugler creative director Nicola Formichetti tell a charming anecdote about the “last time [he] tried to work with fat people” and now we have notorious class-act Nik Richie filing a post over at his website TheDirty entitled “Looks Like They Forgot To Photoshop Kate Upton.” The post is easy to find on Google if you need proof, but the substance of it is the Dirty readership asking about Upton’s success, specifically in light of her recent spot for Sobe (below). The question goes like this:

Nik, not sure what all the hype is about Kate Upton, she has a pretty face, I’ll give her that. But wtf is up w her fat rolls? She looks way too sloppy & soft to be a supermodel. Check out this video of her pigging out on Nachos by the pool, WTF!?

And fearless leader Richie responds:

Kate is naturally fat and doesn’t care… she has two more seasons in that real body suit before she jumps ship.

The ad in question is this:

I think the only thing worth asking here is “Why are people so horrible?”

    Damn. I think Kate is hella sexy. Maybe Nik wouldn’t be so cranky if she ate something.

  • Hanna

    Yeah, she’s huge. Her fat is like all over the place, can’t you see? I mean, look at that belly. Gross. It’s like, like, not even concave. No ribs painfully sticking out. Where are the jagged hipbones? The hollowed cheeks? Clearly this woman is one fat slob and you need to really, really punish her for it. Eating nachos, can you believe it?

    For those not so quick on the uptake, this was sarcasm.

  • Cassieleigh

    Geeze – if she’s fat, then I’m a killer whale. Poor dear. I will say that it was a lousy commercial though. I have no desire to drink those things at all.

  • Kaylaandrena

    That girl is NOT fat!! If Nik should comment on anything it should be about how stupid the ad is because all it’s doing is showing how damn sexy Kate is!

  • Kathleen

    It’s a terrible ad- I’d think it was for maybe the bikini she’s wearing, not the drink.
    But my god if she’s fat, there is just no hope at all.

    • Eileen

      Seriously! The drink barely makes an appearance.

  • Shevonne

    If she’s fat, then I’m obese

    • miinxi

      high five to that.

    • MM

      Me too! I’m going to celebrate…with nachos.

    • aykun

      You’re so pretty too :)

    • Laura

      Seriously! I’m a size 8/9-guess it’s time for gastric bypass surgery!

    • John Galt

      Guess so.

  • Ewa

    The ad is completely pointless, but she is gorgeousssss (in William Dafoe’s voice).

  • Haley

    That was actually adorable. I know bunches of dudes (and girls, for that matter) who would just love to squeeze that cute little roll on her side and give her a big kiss. A babe is a babe, and frankly I think it’s a refreshing change from all the hypertoned models we normally see in bikini/lingerie ads.

    • John Galt

      Most guys prefer thin women.

    • Tiffany

      Guess you aren’t most guys. Glad I’m most women who are not interested in assholes.

    OF COURSE she’s not fat, but she’s not a typical model either. You can’t argue that she does look different from the “normal” of the fashion world. The scale is completely skewed and it’s absolutely not the same plane we look out from on here on planet earth.

    By earth’s standards: she’s slim.
    By fashion’s: overweight.

    It’s your right to decide what your standpoint is, and where you’re looking from. But it absolutely is not your right to say that whoever you are looking at isn’t tailored (no pun intended) to fit (no pun intended the sequel) your standards.

    • Maggie

      p.s. that ad was horrendous.

  • anon

    shes fat, sorry. This is not the normal world, this is fashion. I work in it, I see it every day. For fashion she is fat. Normal shes average. But in fashion shes fat.

  • Kelley Kelley

    This is so sad. What is wrong with this world that we justify this ignorance and just shrug our shoulders?

    I feel badly for our daughters that they have to grow up in this world.

    • John Galt

      Yeah, sorry, she’s overweight. She may be an ok person but shouldn’t be a model.

    • Tiffany

      Who are you to say who can and can not be a model? I doubt that you could live up to a model standards either.

  • Kat

    I’m confused. That’s a fat woman? If so, America’s obesity problem is way further off the charts than I ever imagined. She’s tiny.

  • Dude

    Perfection doesn’t involve girls with big boobs, stomach bulges and back rolls. Just big boobs. She is fat, sorry.

    • Chick

      And your inside’s are as ugly as probably your outsides

    Dear God, I hope she represents a new/retro standard in modeling. She’s hot. She’s a cheese steak sandwich compared to the dessicated beef jerky we’re being force fed.

  • Jen

    My heart hurts at all the comments saying “sorry, she’s fat”. No, no she is not. She is very slim. She perhaps is less photoshopped than other models and is probably a size larger than the majority of them but that does not make her fat. I think that it would be objectively correct to say that she has more body fat than many other models. That, however, is not the same as saying, as one commenter did, she is overweight. No, John Galt, she is not overweight. She is just not severely underweight. There is a difference. Also, John, just because you and all your friends prefer ultra thin, (perhaps underweight) girls doesn’t mean that “the majority of men” also do. From the culmination of your comments my assessment is that you’re an immature asshole** and you spend all your time with immature assholes, thus skewing your assessment of the preferences of “the majority of men”. Perhaps you should work on that instead of jumping all over the perceived flaws of a victoria’s secret model for christsake! (**note: ladies, i’m not saying that guys that prefer thin women are necessarily immature assholes. I’m saying that anyone that would call this woman “fat” or “overweight” and deny that different men are attracted to different body types and be so adamant that he makes these comments THREE times is an immature asshole. Please, ladies don’t date a guy like that… regardless of how skinny you are**)

    • Kim

      Oh, these guys know perfectly well she isn’t “fat”. They’re trolling. As for Mr. “Most men prefer thin women” x 3, not in my experience. I’ve had periods in my life when I’ve been very thin and never got hit on as much as when I was bigger. Talking about between being like a size 4 or 6 and a size 10. Size 4 is pretty skinny. Size 10, while not fat, is definitely heavier than I like to be but for some reason men seem to prefer it.

  • Catherine

    Fat…??? Wh..aaa..?? All I see is a non-photo-shopped model. Her bikini top is making an indentation in her skin… probably because of the weight of boobs is dragging it forward. Her stomach is flat and is only curving outward because she is arching her back. I think people have just gotten so used to PhotoShop that they have forgotten the laws of physics. It’s also possible that some people are morons who didn’t take physics, but that just sounds mean. ;)

    • Karin

      I agree with you completely! She is not skin and bones, she is a gorgeous and healthy looking, yet slim, woman. If I were a guy, I would definitely go for someone like her rather than someone that looked like a teenage boy! Kate Upton is absolutely perfect in my eyes, and I’m a straight female! Get real!

    She’s overweight for a model. It’s her JOB to be in shape and she’s carrying extra weight. There is NO WAY her waist is 25 inches… more like 30.

    • Tiffany

      I’m glad I don’t have to live up to your standards or the industry’s standards because I would probably die from anorexia.

  • JoeBlow

    She’s by no means fat, but not toned enough to be a model.

    • Karin

      Depends what type of model. Sure, she may not be Vogue material, but why would she want to be with a body like that?! She’s absolutely stunning. She could easily be a lingerie or fetish model, which in my opinion would be way funner and much cooler. =D

  • L

    You dudes on here can’t be serious. I bet she’s hotter than any chick you’ve ever fucked. If you can’t handle a woman who eats more than tic tacs and broccoli you need to get your head examined.

    • Tiffany

      Thank God a man who actually cares about a woman’s needs and not a sickly girl on their arm to show around! I applaud you! *clap*

  • IVYaesthetician

    High fashion is not concerned with the average (female) nor is any other extremely selective field be it art, music, aesthetics, athletics, etc. High fashion is concerned with the remarkable, unattainable, and rigorous both physically and mentally and requires a degree of sacrifice much like an athlete sacrifices future health for a relatively short career in one’s prime; There is nothing remarkable about a soft artist, soft musician, soft architect, soft athlete, or soft model. Kate Upton has yet to evidence the same sacrifice required of high performers in one’s field and as such remains removed from high fashion in favor of commercial appeal.

  • Bradley Barnett

    Nik Ritchie;I am assuming is a woman as most men couldn’t write the moronic comments attributed to Nik.

    Nik says, Kate is “naturally fat”. Have you looked at her family pictures? Also,when did you become an oracle,predicting the future…..”she has two more seasons in that real body suit..”?

    Nik,unless you have model looks,are a model and are beautiful;you need to think before you open your mouth.

    Kate Upton will be an icon in 10 years and where will you be? IF your legs are fatter then Upton’s,you lose,if your not as pretty as Upton,you lose, and IF your future is not as bright as Upton’s,you lose.

    You are a petty,selfish person,who needs to spend an hour looking at what’s important in the mirror. I would love to know what you learn?

  • Michael O’Connell

    Oh my god…….he’s a guy??!! Nick,check into an institution and figure out what your gender is? I appears you haven’t noticed at the ripe age of 33.

    Why would you have any interest in such mundane topics? hahahahahhahahahahahahahah!

  • Leona

    I think shes gorgeous and should embrace that body

  • kemten

    horrible figure
