Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj are standing with blogger who was body shamed

Don't come for "Thickleeyonce."

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.

Legobane suddenly found herself with two options: She could either ignore Mokgerepi’s offensive tweet, or call him out.

She chose the latter.

“He had to know his place,” Legobane told BuzzFeed. “So I decided to reply because I felt he was being rude.”

Using just four words, Legobane made sure Mokgerepi knew he was nowhere CLOSE to being in her league.
