Twitter user Leyton Mokgerepi‏ posted a meme placing a petite woman on the left and Thick Leeyonce on the right next to each other. The meme reads “Girls that I like vs girls that like me”. 

 

 

But Thick Leeyonce was having none of it and put Mokgerepi down with just a few choice words. 

 

 

 

Other plus-size models and bloggers like Yoliswa Mqoco have made waves in the fashion industry because they celebrate their bodies unapologetically.

Despite some mean comments on Twitter, many have come out in support of Thick Leeyonce. 

 

 

Thick Leyonce's dismissal of Mokgerepi‏ has received thousands of likes and comments on Twitter and she has received support from American singers Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande.

 

 

The model's clapdown has gained so much traction, Teen Vogue has since reached out to her for an interview.

 

 

 

Mokgerepi tried to retract his comment by tweeting the original image of Thick Leeyonce captioned “Girlfriend Goals” but the damage was already.
