Here's a little tip that'll take you far in this era of social media draggings and internet dust-ups. Don't come for just anyone on social media, because you never know when they'll clapback... or all the people who will support them once they do. Just ask Jan Shedd, a Texas woman who posted a negative comment about Dallas' new Channel 8 traffic reporter Demetria Obilor last week.
Shedd took to social media to critique Obilor's figure in a now-deleted post.
The internet outrage-mill would never have discovered this post had it not been for Twitter user Mother of Draggings.

Things took a turn for the outrageous when Chance the Rapper got involved.

The problem is, even if racism was not her intention, Shedd is just the latest in a long history of denigrating black women's bodies.
Imma need people to recognize that black women specifically face a unique type of body shaming/policing.— halleteri (@halleteri)1509891458.0
Still, Obilor isn't mad though. She recently shared a graceful reply to both her haters and her fans
Addressing the haters, showing love to my ppl 💗 and thank you @chancetherapper 💯 https://t.co/ks2cTSuLLe— Demetria Obilor (@Demetria Obilor)1509741854.0
