'Chunky' Cheerleader Responds to Blogging Critic: 'Shame on You'

'Chunky' Cheerleader Responds to Blogging Critic: 'Shame on You'

Oklahoma City Thunder cheerleader Kelsey Williams is responding to a blogger who attacked her weight recently, asking readers if she was "too chunky" to be on the team.

In an April 22 post on CBS Houston, writer Claire Crawford commented on Williams' supposed "pudginess" around her waist in a blog headlined "Is this girl too chunky to be an OKC Thunder cheerleader?" The post also included a poll that encouraged readers to judge the cheerleader's figure.

"I got online and was reading the article and… my heart sank," Williams said Wednesday on "Good Morning America." "I was definitely embarrassed and just devastated."

Though the post has since been deleted (a cached version it is still available here) and the blogger reportedly fired, Williams still has a message for Crawford.

"Shame on you. I mean, you are a woman. You know exactly what we all go through on a daily basis just being a woman," she said. "Shame on you."

Williams insists that she works out three to four hours a day and is a healthy "size 4."

"I've always had more of an athletic build, different than the slender ballerina that some people may think of as a dancer," she told "GMA." "What's done is done. I'm just going to keep my chin up."
