Plus Sized Model Takes Down A Body Shamer

Things were business as usual on Twitter when user @imleyton made a "funny" post about girls. He posted a picture of a slim girl and a plus sized girl, saying "Girls that I like vs Girls that like me." Clearly, @imleyton isn't happy about bigger girls seeking him. Well, as it turned out to be, the girl in the picture on the right - the undesirable girl - is an actual person, too (shock of all shocks).

Lesego Legobane, also going by Thick Leeyonce, is a plus sized model in South Africa. She had only this thing to tell mister Leyton: "I don't like you." At the time of writing, the tweet heard around the world had 315,851 Retweets and 966,571 likes, catapulting Leeyonce into international recognition overnight, including an interview by Teen Vogue. What can I say, people like a good burn!
