University of Houston president Renu Khator has been known throughout her stint as a chic dresser, in a business-savvy way.

Her fashion style is constantly on display to UH alumni who get the school's magazine; each issue seems to contain a half-dozen or so pictures of Khator on the job.

Nothing wrong with putting some thought into your personal style, but when you go attacking an entire city for looking what you feel is less than its best, well....

Frankly, we never knew Khator had it against chubbies, so much so that she would go on a Twitter rant, a blitzkrieg of never-ending passive-aggressive messages offering to "help" her followers lose weight.

The startling evidence:

All right already, Khator!!! We get the message. We could stand to drop some of those Christmas pounds, Just because you effortlessly stay thin......

Oops. Wait. It may not be Khator behind this at all:

Of course, she would try to say she's been hacked.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
