Thickleeyonce vs Twitter!
By now we know nobody is safe from Twitter trolls – bullying
and shaming is their main aim. And it was no different for Lesego
"Thickleeyonce" Legobane, who’s had her fair share of body-shaming
and bullying, recently. Lesego is a plus-sized model, photographer and
socialite better known as Thickleeyonce.
Following her runway debut at SA Fashion Week last night, Twitter
trolls went for the model. The trolling was on such a level that Thickleeyonce shared
screenshots of the hatred on Instagram (See below). She included a post detailing her heartache
and personal struggle with cyberbullying over the years.
But Twitter trolls were quick to point out that Thickleeyonce
herself was a troll before . . . Two years ago the outspoken socialite fashion-shamed
Metro FM DJ Lerato Kganyago. In the tweet, Thickleeyonce shared her dislike for
Lerato’s dress at that year’s Samas. And trolls were quick to remind her of her
cyberbullying – prompting a quick apology from Thickleeyonce to Lerato. However,
Lerato is being somewhat more grown up about this, the radio beauty simply said,
“Talk” in response to the apology – suggesting they take it offline and speak
to each other instead. Can someone say awkward?
