Writer Robby Tripp penned what he and thousands of others thought was a touching note about his "curvy" wife on Instagram. The post went viral and pretty quickly Tripp's post was getting national attention and praise for it's positivity towards full-figured women and bucking the stereotypes that only thin model types are truly physically beautiful. (See note below)
However, it was only a matter of time before many people began pointing out that Robbie's post was still putting value on his wife based solely on her looks. For example, Julia Pugachevsky, an editor for Cosmopolitan magazine, shared a critical post that was liked by over 100,000 people.
Obviously, Robbie had good intentions with his post, but in the age of the internet you can't say anything without offending someone (or thousands of people). While his critics certainly have a valid point that liking someone based solely on looks of any kind is shallow, one glance at Tripp's other posts about his wife and you can see that's not the case here. For example, the post below that was posted before his post about her body went viral.
What do you think, was Tripp's note sweet or tone deaf??? Comment below!
