early every week, a new story of a body-shamer treating people poorly takes the Internet by storm. Why is this still a thing? Why is anyone shaming anyone for anything? It's 2017, people! We're better than this, aren't we?
Luckily, there are people in the world who won't stand for such nonsense. People like Lesego Legobane, who's response to a body-shamer has rocketed her to Twitter stardom.
This is Lesego Legoban.
She’s a 24-year-old blogger, photographer, and plus-size model.
And she is 100% fabulous.
Legobane is all about body positivity.
She’s confident in her rockin’ looks and doesn’t waste time with haters.
Yesterday, she got the chance to prove it.
Yesterday morning, a man from South Africa named Leyton Mokgerepi tried his hand at recreating a "vs." meme.
He put a picture of Legobane next to a picture of a thinner model and shared that he preferred the look of the model on the left. But it wasn’t just that he preferred the thinner woman, it was that he humiliated Legobane by making it seem like she (or a similar-bodied woman) would chase after him.
We know. Ugh.
So many people responded to his meme in hilarious ways.
There were very few people who thought the meme was in any way hilarious.
Probably because it wasn’t.
Some even took pity on Mokgerepi's friends.
Assuming he has any, they’re going to have a pretty rough time.
But the best response ever came from Legobane herself…
