Rod Wave Has Experienced Some Bullying On Social Media For Being Over Weight

Rod Wave as an artist, has a large fan base across all genders. He is known for his emotional and melodic style of music. Despite all this, Wave has experienced some negative comments on social media due to his weight.

Sometime towards the end of 2020, Wave was booked to perform at Morris Brown College. On the day of the performance, after he and about 30 members of his entourage stepped on the stage, the floor caved in and collapsed. While nobody was hurt, this gave people the opportunity to speak about his weight.

This caused a heated argument on social media, and some of his fans were quick to come to his defense that the stage collapse was not his fault since he wasn’t the only one who was on stage when it happened.

Another incident that called attention to Rod Wave’s weight was a video of him struggling to sit on a chair while speaking about removing himself from Drake’s Lemon Pepper Freestyle. While some laughed at him, some used the opportunity to implore him to work on his weight.

Some of his naysayers who described him as lazy enjoined him to use the money he flaunts on social media to hire himself a dietician if he is too lazy to work out.

The Rapper Appears To Be Undeterred By What People Has To Say About Him and His Weight

Despite all the snarky comments making the rounds on social media about his weight, Rod Wave appears to be undeterred. He has continued to shun out chart-topping music back to back. After the video of his fall went viral, and he must have seen lots of comments of people harassing him about his appearance, Rod took to his Instagram stories to post a video of himself carrying stacks of cash with a comment about his laughing at his haters all year round.

If he really set his mind to it, losing weight and keeping fit is not impossible to achieve. But it takes determination and a particular mindset to be able to go through a weight loss journey and maintain the body weight.

Even though Rod Wave has not embarked on any known weight loss journey, many of his fans and followers have predicted that he might need a major health scare to nudge him into action and re-evaluate his choices. Since he is a father to two beautiful daughters, many think that should be enough motivation to want to lose weight and eat healthily.
