On Tuesday, an internet troll posted a nasty meme about “the girls he likes” versus “the girls that like him” — and immediately, it went viral.
Leyton Mokgerepi (who is somewhat Twitter famous in South Africa) not-so-subtly insinuated that he finds thinner women attractive, but he has to “settle” for larger women because his desired type isn’t interested in him.
Mokgerepi’s tweet implies that fat women are less valuable and less desirable, and this message is sexist, degrading, and just plain wrong.
Disgusted by the ridiculous comparison, Twitter users found the plus-size woman featured in the meme and brought the tweet to her attention.
The curvy model on the right turned out to be Lesego Legobane, a 24-year-old plus-style style blogger.
