Kate Upton was slammed by a blogger of the "Skinny Gossip" website who compared her with a "cow" and called her a "piggie."
The blogger has received angry emails and rape and death threats in response to her blog post, she claimed on her blog.
"Huge thighs, NO waist, big fat floppy boobs, terrible body definition – she looks like a squishy brick. Is this what American women are “striving” for now? The lazy, lardy look? Have we really gotten so fat in this country that Kate is the best we can aim for? Sorry, but: eww!" the anonymous blogger wrote on July 8.

The blogger posted a photo of Upton's rear in bikini and compared it to a cow. She said she "confidently lumbers up a runway like there's a buffet at the end of it."
She claims that Upton looks "thick, vulgar almost pornographic and she is a solid 30 lbs too heavy for this outfit [a bikini]."
According to Skinnygossip.com, hacker group Anonymous attacked her site over the blog post forcing her to change web hosts.
The blogger says she was hit by many messages labeling the site as "pro-anorexia" but she denies the accusations.
"Anorexia is not mere dieting, it is not striving for a certain look or to fit into a certain piece of clothing. We have never supported illness or self-harm," she wrote on another blog post.
As a result of the attacks against her she wrote:
I am removing the “Starving Tips of the Day” until I can review, edit, and possibly re-title it. While I believe most of them are solid tips for avoiding overeating or curbing cravings, I do see some of them that, upon further reflection, I can no longer support.
I am adding language to our community registration terms that explicitly prohibits the glorification or promotion of self-harm. While it has been unofficial policy from the beginning, it will now be officially stated. This will not just be window dressing; it will be enforced. We do not want to cut off support to those most in need, but we will warn – and then ban – members who violate these terms, and when doing so we will direct them to reputable sources of assistance.
Within the next few days, I am adding a section to the community with resources and paths to assistance for issues including depression, eating disorders, and self-injury.
I am making some changes to the VIP areas of the community to better reflect this philosophy and ensure that each member clearly understands the goal and intent of the community.
In closing, there's nothing wrong with saying skinny is beautiful, just like there's nothing wrong with saying curvy is beautiful, or red hair is beautiful, or anything else someone happens to find appealing. It's an opinion, and we're all entitled to them.
