CBS Houston sports blogger Anna-Megan Raley is under fire for writing a post asking if an Oklahoma City Thunder cheerleader is "too chunky."

Raley, writing under the pseudonym Claire Crawford, wrote "The Rockets looked terrible in Game 1, but some say they weren't the only bad-looking people on the court."

She was referring to Kelsey Williams, a blonde basketball cheerleader who Raley claims has been "criticized" by some for having "pudginess" around her waistline.

The post, which has since been removed, was followed by a poll that asked readers what they thought about the cheerleader's weight, including the response: "She has no business wearing that outfit in front of people."

Commenters and Twitter users called for Raley to step down for objectifying the cheerleader.

Williams thanked her supporters on Twitter, "We wouldn't know what blessings were if we didn't go through trials. Thank you to EVERYONE for the compassion and love today. I'm in awe."
