Should We Be Fat Shaming Vin Diesel?

By  | 

Vin Diesel has recently adopted what many would consider the new hot trend: The dad bod.

But for many, the star’s recent transformation seems totally out of the norm for the Fast & Furious star that usually keeps up a hard, muscular physique.

On Tuesday afternoon, Diesel was spotted hanging out (no pun intended) on his Shore Club hotel balcony in Miami smoking a cigarette, shirtless, revealing his unusually unfit bod. The photos quickly hit the web, causing quite a discussion on social media.

Some folks suggested on Twitter that Vin is pregnant … one going as far as to say Tyler Perry was the father.

And while many dissed the actor for his apparent weight gain, others defended the star against body shaming.

Vin was in Miami with his Fast & Furious co-star Tyrese Gibson for the day before taking off for Aruba where Gibson will be showing his new film, Shame.

We want to know: Are people on social media over reacting? Is it fair to criticize a 48-year-old man for adding on a few lbs?

    Are we sure that is not his twin brother? For real I heard he has a twin brother.
