Plus-Size Model Gains Support After Epic Response To Man Who Used Her Swimsuit Photo To Body-Shame Her!

I don’t get why narrow -minded, ignorant people cannot accept the fact that we all come in different shapes and sizes.

How boring would the world be if we all looked the same?

So, it’s refreshing to see a beautiful plus-size model standing up for herself against vicious bullies.

Lesego Legobane gained online fame after giving a man who turned her swimsuit photo into a body-shaming meme the perfect put down. 

The South – African based model, blogger, and photographer known as ‘ThickLeeyonce’, was shocked to learn that one of her photos was featured in a sexist meme.

The cruel meme was created by Twitter user Leyton Mokgerepi on Tuesday.

The meme features a photo of a slender model on the left and Lesego’s curvaceous swimsuit photo on the right with the caption: ‘Girls that I like vs Girls that like me.’

But with just four words Lesego had the internet in a frenzy. The model hit back with a simple, yet effective message.

‘I don’t like you,’ she tweeted.

After getting dragged Leyton eventually tried to backpedal on his original tweet.

He shared Lesego’s photo again, only this time he labeled her ‘girlfriend goals’.
