Rob Kardashian ‘upset by Chaz Bono joke’

Rob Kardashian’s pals have apparently started referring to him as “Chaz Bono’s thinner twin”.

The 26-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has struggled to keep his weight down in recent months.

His rotund physique has resulted in cruel taunts from strangers and even close friends, according to Radar Online.

The website reports the latest jab comes at the expense of Cher’s transsexual son Chaz.

“It all started when Rob and his friends were out and some stranger yelled out and called him Chaz Bono. “Rob likes Chaz a lot, but he wasn’t happy when his friends started telling him that he could be Chaz’s ‘thinner twin,’” a source explained.

Rob is believed to have struck up a close friendship with Chaz when the men competed on America’s Dancing with the Stars.

The pair reportedly bonded over their weight struggles. Chaz once weighed in at 250 pounds and Rob is thought to be around 240.

The comparison is especially irksome to Rob as he’s fighting the battle of the bulge in the spotlight while Chaz has slimmed down substantially.

“It’s bad enough that he’s struggling to lose weight in the public eye, but now his own posse is getting in on it so it’s pretty ironic that now Chaz is slimmer and he’s packed on the pounds,” the insider continued.

Rob recently opened up about being embarrassed by his weight gain on an E! special about the Kardashian clan.

“Every time I hop in the shower and see myself naked I cry, because my penis looks so small now,” he told Ryan Seacrest.
