A blogger for a CBS station in Houston has created an online controversy after questioning whether OKC Thunder cheerleader Kelsey Williams is "too chunky" to cheer in the NBA.

The question has people sounding off on social media from coast to coast. The blog even asked people to vote.

Williams has been a cheerleader for the Thunder for three years. In her online bio, Williams says she loves the community events she gets to participate in, especially the ones helping children.

She responded to the criticism with a tweet.

"We wouldn't know what blessings were if we didn't go through trials," she said. "Thank you to everyone for the compassion and love today. I'm in awe."

The blogger for the CBS station in Houston is a woman named Anna-Megan Raley. Her blog can no longer be found on the website.
