This Plus-Size Model Clapped Back At A Man Who Turned Her Photo Into A Sexist Meme
"I can be fat and still be out of your league."
This is Lesego Legobane, aka "ThickLeeYonce," a 24-year-old plus-size model, blogger, photographer, and body-positive activist living in South Africa.
On Tuesday, a popular South African Twitter user Leyton Mokgerepi turned her photo into a body-shaming meme.
In the midst of his epic dragging, Mokgerepi tweeted Legobane's photo again — this time calling her "girlfriend goals," in what appeared to be an effort to walk back his original tweet.
Legobane said she's been "overwhelmed by the love" and has been getting messages from women saying her body positivity has inspired them to love their own bodies.
And she has one more thing to say to the guy who tweeted her photo.
