A sports blogger is at the center of controversy after questioning whether an Oklahoma City Thunder cheerleader was quote "too chunky" to cheer in the NBA.

CBS Houston blogger Claire Crawford targeted Kelsey Williams' weight on the court during the first round of the playoffs.

Crawford called Williams' a "pretty blonde" but said she had "pudginess around her waistline".

She also wrote if Williams is comfortable, then "good for her" and that "not every man likes a woman to be toothpick skinny".

A poll was attached to her column asking readers their opinions on Williams' physique. Many people quickly criticized Crawford for her commentary.

Williams' responded on Twitter, saying "we wouldn't know what blessings were if we didn't go through trials."

CBS Houston has since removed the post from its website.
