Unbeknownst to Richman, that word is extremely sensitive. According to an XOJane essay by Amber Sarah detailing the Richman incident, thinspiration is very popular in pro-anorexia and pro-bulimia circles, generally consisting of pictures of emaciated bodies. Amber writes that a friend of hers was upset when Richman used the phrase, and the friend tagged him in a comment that explained why. Richmans response to her friend : DILLIGAF? (Do I Look Like I Give an [Expletive]?) Things spiraled from there, as Ambers friend posted a screenshot of the comment, and fired back that the #thinspiration hashtag glorifies negative media self-imagery that being thin is better as opposed to any other body style. Others, including Amber, noticed her photo, and started writing to Richman saying they were also offended by the #thinspiration hashtag as well as his crude response. Maybe realize that you arent being trolled, but that you upset actual human beings, Amber wrote. Richman, via screengrabs from Amber on XOJane , apparently did not take too kindly to that criticism. Maybe youll acknowledge that just because someone is on TV, they are no less worthy of human kindness, respect, forgiveness or patienceGive me a [expletive] break, Richman wrote in part. If anyone acts like a [four letter word] Ill call them one. Its not misogyny, its calling a spade a spade.if my use of the hashtag offended you, it was unintentional & for that Im sorry. It got worse as others jumped in. instagram followers Richman told one of his Instagram critics to Grab a razor blade and draw a bath. I doubt anyone will miss you. He told another that the only thing that was [expletive] up was your Dads choice to go without a condom. Amber details more comments in the XOJane essay; none are flattering, to say the least.

A Conversation With the Admiral of Rihanna’s Instagram Navy

This results in a combination of red wine on the nose and palate, with the freshness and structure of a white wine, say wine experts. In other words, it’s very easy on the palate.

With delicious aromas of summer fruits combined with a fresh, citrusy acidity on the palate, a well made Provence rose is pure sunshine in a glass.” Laetitia March-Nulton, U.S. export manager for Baron Philippe de Rothschild, which produces Mouton Cadet, agreed with the sentiment. “It’s exciting to see the growing popularity of rose wines in the U.S.!” said March-Nulton. “Many still associate rose as a sweet wine, but traditional roses are made in a dry style.” The lingering stereotype is a holdover from several sweet blush labels produced during the 70s and 80s. But today’s bottles veer away from saccharine tastes.

Have you ever thought about what you’d say to Rihanna if you got to talk to her? I would thank her for all of her songs and for inspiring me a lot on fashion and for making me wanna follow all my dreams in life with hopes. What do you find most inspiring about her? Her taste in fashion, in my opinion she is the most stylish celebrity ever. What’s your favorite Rihanna song? My favorite song of her is Man Down because the beat is so great and it makes me wanna dance! I see that you let people buy posts on your IG. How does that work? I share people’s business to give them a chance to have their product seen by almost a million people which is great for their business and which makes my account not only a fan page but also a fashion page, since I enjoy new products and fashion a lot.
