Plus-size model Lesego Legoban, who goes by the name of @ThickLeeYonce across social media, was a recent victim of body-shaming on Twitter, but she did not stay quiet.
On September 19, Twitter user Leyton Mokgerepi though it'd be a bright idea to share a meme that featured one of Leeyonce's photo (on the right). "Girls that I like vs. Girls that like me," he stated.

His meme, however, backfired when over an hour later, the South African model saw it. Lee clapped back with the most epic response:
On Instagram, Lee elaborated more on the degrading incident.
"I hate it when men think that fat girls are desperate and that we like every other guy cos 'we don't have options'. First of all, check yourself," she expressed. She later noted that artists such as Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj all praised her response that with 315,000 retweets and 965,000 likes went viral on Twitter.
News flash to all the haters out there: Women are embracing their curves now, more than ever!
In fact, the average American woman, like myself, now wears between a size 16 and 18, which corresponds to a Women’s Plus size 20W, according to a recent study from the International Journal of Fashion Design, Technology and Education.
So basically, the joke's on you, Mister Leyton and in the words of Ms. Leeyonce herself, she's #FatAndStillOuttaYourLeague.
