Transcript for NBA Cheerleader to Female Weight Critic: 'You Know What We Go Through'
up the "gma heat index". The latest on the nba cheerleader who took a lot of attention on her weight. She's speaking out to bianna golodryga and has the story. ♪ Reporter: She's performed in front of thousands but oklahoma city thunder cheerleader kelsey williams was unwittingly thrust into the national spotlight after an online blogger questioned her appearance at an article askings this girl too chunky to be an okc thunder cheerleader?" I got online and reading it my heart sank. Reporter: It went viral and shockingly it came from a woman who has since lost her job but the damage was done. The rockets look terrible but some say they weren't the only bad looking people on the court. What did you think when you read that. I was definitely embarrassed and just -- just devastated. Reporter: If you could say something to her right now, what would that be? Shame on you. I mean you're a woman. You know exactly what we all go through on a daily basis, just being a woman. Shame on you. Reporter: Kelsey says she eats right and works out three to four hours a day to meet the strenuous requirements of being a professional cheerleader but she also embraces her body. I've always had more of an athletic built different than the slender ballerina that some people may think of as a dancer and that's just not me. Reporter: Do you mind what size you are? I wear a size 4. Reporter: You're a size 4. People were constantly saying, wow, if you're chunky, if you're chubby, if you're too fat, then there's no hope for me. I give up. Reporter: Describe that moment when you had to put that uniform back on. My first game back, it was -- I was really scared. I had a feeling that a lot of people would be looking for me just because I'm me now instead of a thunder girl and so I was really nervous and I had a huge knot in my stomach right up until the game started but once I ran out on to the court and the game started, it just -- it felt like normal. It felt good to be back. Kelsey has gotten overwhelming support not only from her family but fans and perfect strangers through social media and she says she wants to find the silver lining in what happened to her. Took to twitter and wrote "to be womanly always, discouraged never." What did you mean by that? I have so much love and me sending hate her way would do nothing. What's done is done and just going to try to keep my chin up. And we couldn't get a comment from the blogger because the radio station the blogger worked for hasn't identified the former employer. Kelsey thinks the blogger shouldn't have been fired. If fact she says she wouldn't have wished that on anyone. She had only been married for a month. I think she looks fantastic. A great spirit. Thanks, bianna. "Dancing with the stars"
