The modern-day crooner known as Michael Buble is one who really knows how to calm a room and sing out the sweet songs that make you feel good. Unfortunately, a picture he posted to Instagram is now causing a huge stir, as some people believe that he posted it and purposely fat-shamed an unknown woman in the picture.
As E! Online reported, the 39-year-old Buble is on vacation in Miami with his wife, Luisana Lopilato. They were out seeing the sights and visiting a few places when she took a photo of him, and there was more to it.
The photo landed on Buble’s Instagram account with the following caption.
“There was something about this photo lu took,that seemed worthy of instagram.#myhumps #babygotback #hungryshorts #onlyinmiami #picoftheday #beautifulbum”
Some people assume he was simply trying to be funny and crack a joke, but there are a lot more people who don’t believe that was the case. After posting the pic, many got on Twitter and Instagram and jumped all over Michael Buble’s case.
They’re calling it a case of fat-shaming and think he should be sorry for what he said.
That awkward moment when @michaelbuble changes Instagram from a photo sharing application to a pulpit of bullying misogyny.

There are many who have said worse and who have said a lot more at Buble to try and get their point across, but it’s all about the same. Well, there are those who are stepping in with the opposite point of view too, per Fox News.
“The only reason he’s getting all this negative response is his fame.. Leave the man alone. I’m sure the girl will probably agree with what was said, and I’m sure she was expecting to have people looking at her butt.. Y’all needa find something better to fuss about people.”
So far, Buble hasn’t responded to any of the criticism or the support being thrown at him on Twitter or Instagram. He also hasn’t taken down the picture and has continued to post and tweet about his vacation with his wife.
Michael Buble may or may not have fat-shamed a stranger, and there are many differing opinions to what his actual intention was with the picture. Either way, the picture is causing a big stir and people are at least expressing their opinion.
