White Man Gets All The Smoke For Bragging About Loving His Wife

Robbie Tripp, (a man with a bunch of Instagram followers for some reason) whose bio boasts, “TEDx Speaker Husband to a curvy goddess” caught a lot of backlash after posting a picture with his wife. Like many white men, he apparently feels the need to get a pat on the back for anything he does, and this time it may not have gone as planned.

Tripp posted this picture with his wife, with a caption that’s way too long for instagram. He starts out the post by explaining that he was teased as a kid for liking girls on the “thicker side,” until he became a man and learned about feminism.

|| I love this woman and her curvy body. As a teenager, I was often teased by my friends for my attraction to girls on the thicker side, ones who were shorter and curvier, girls that the average (basic) bro might refer to as "chubby" or even "fat." Then, as I became a man and started to educate myself on issues such as feminism and how the media marginalizes women by portraying a very narrow and very specific standard of beauty (thin, tall, lean) I realized how many men have bought into that lie. For me, there is nothing sexier than this woman right here: thick thighs, big booty, cute little side roll, etc. Her shape and size won't be the one featured on the cover of Cosmopolitan but it's the one featured in my life and in my heart. There's nothing sexier to me than a woman who is both curvy and confident; this gorgeous girl I married fills out every inch of her jeans and is still the most beautiful one in the room. Guys, rethink what society has told you that you should desire. A real woman is not a porn star or a bikini mannequin or a movie character. She's real. She has beautiful stretch marks on her hips and cute little dimples on her booty. Girls, don't ever fool yourself by thinking you have to fit a certain mold to be loved and appreciated. There is a guy out there who is going to celebrate you for exactly who you are, someone who will love you like I love my Sarah. || photo cred: @kaileehjudd

This man had the audacity to say “her shape and size won’t be the one featured on the cover Cosmopolitan but it’s the one featured in my life and my heart.” LOL. Way to uplift your woman, Robbie.

At first, this post was being blasted on every media outlet because people thought it was endearing, but now everyone’s starting to realized that this guy sounds like a total d-bag. It’s great that you love your girl’s shelf-booty, but you don’t need to act like you saved her life by loving her. She’d be just fine without you, and without the cover of Cosmopolitan.

Of course, once people who’ve dealt with actual body issues caught wind of this on Twitter, the jokes began to fly. The narrative changed from “omg I need a husband like this” to “BOYYYYY IF YOU DON’T”

Check out some of the best reactions to compliment-fishing Robbie on the next page, and let us know if you’d be cool with your man posting a long-form caption about how he loves you even though he got made fun of for loving him some side rolls.

Also, like the good people of Twitter always do, they found some racist tweets from this lovely couple. A love story for the ages.
