– Robbie Tripp, self-described "author, public speaker, entrepreneur, and influencer" who went viral last year
for an Instagram post where he described his wife as "a curvy goddess",
which quickly became a meme, is the author of creative self-help book "Create Rebellion
". His website bills the book as "an avant-garde stream of consciousness that seeks to inspire creative minds to listen to their inner desires to create, to be disruptive with their creations, and to disregard those who don't see the beauty of their inspired vision."– Tripp quickly became a wholesome brand icon (?),
earning six figures from working with companies like Chase Bank, Alaska Air, L'Ocittane, McDonalds,
five star hotels and more, sock and toothpaste brands and more, something he achieved solely through posting about his wife, which he still does, describing her since as "a sensual goddess"
and "the world's comfiest pillow".
This earned the ire of Babe.net, which posted an article titled "Our standards are so low, we’re celebrating a man for being attracted to his wife",
which Tripp showed a screenshot of in a NowThis video
talking about the backlash to his viral Instagram post.– Babe.net has since followed Tripp's life in detail, culminating in Tripp's lawyers threatening to sue the site for releasing a negative review of his book.
Titled "Bet you can’t tell the difference between Curvy Wife Guy’s book and the Unabomber manifesto",
Hary Shuckman writes, "Disturbingly, a lot of Create Rebellion reads like this – an angry, right-click-synonym-heavy screed against Curvy Wife Guy's haters,"
[...] "His imagery is pretty clear: he sees himself as a Christ-tier genius whose veins are pumping with pure creativity, everyone else is a disease-ridden leper reeking of 'complacency and whoredom' (sounds pretty metal, tbh)."– One excerpt of Tripp's book reads, "Be careful and act swiftly as you operate among their spiteful hostility; their infection can quickly turn you into a diseased member of their epidemic of complacency and whoredom. These nasty symptoms of free-flowing hatred and negativity are ones that can so easily taint your own mind. Revolt against this faction's pathetic pornography and shatter their closed doors into splinters, exposing their pastime of staying on porches of criticism and enjoying lounge chairs of scorn."– Babe.net released an article summarizing the incident.
In it, Shuckman, the author of the review, writes among other things, "We will not be intimidated! We will not be silenced! We will stand up for our – and your – First Amendment rights! You, the readers of babe dot net deserve to know that in our opinion, the Curvy Wife Guy's book sucks an entire ass."– Babe.net released a statement to Buzzfeed News, saying, “Congress shall make no law preventing the trashing of a dumb book, or prohibiting the free shading thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of babe dot net to peaceably critique 'abstract manifestos for disruptive creativity' written by an Insta-famous weirdo obsessed with talking about his wife’s thiiiiccness.”
– Tripp spoke with Buzzfeed News, stating, "Sensational and completely uncredible snark blogs like the one in question typically wouldn't warrant a response from me, but when full pages of my book are being photographed and published online without my knowledge or permission it becomes necessary to inquire," he said. He added that babe's "obsession" with him has become "deplorable." "My number one goal on social media has always been to spread positivity and encourage others to love themselves and chase their dreams, and I just find it sad that there are people out there who choose to spend their time and energy trying to tear others down and conjure up controversy," he said. "I'll never understand that type of negative energy and I'll continue to stay positive!"( Collapse )ONTD, is the world not ready to hear Robbie Tripp's truth?Sources: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14
