A CBS radio blogger was fired from the company last month after her harsh comments regarding Oklahoma City Thunder cheerleader Kelsey Williams. The female blogger wondered in an online post whether Williams was "too chunky" to be an NBA cheerleader.

"The Rockets looked terrible in Game 1, but some say they weren't the only bad-looking people on the court," the blogger wrote.

Williams responded to the commentary in a Wednesday interview with "Good Morning America," telling the program that her "heart sank" when she read the article.

Williams, who recently married, said she couldn't believe that a woman would write something like that about another woman.

"Shame on you. You're a woman, you know exactly what we all go through on a daily basis," she told "GMA."
