Cape Town - Radio DJ, Gareth Cliff, has been accused of being "sexist" and fat shaming women.

Referring to the anti-Trump women's march that took place across the globe on Saturday, the DJ posted a meme on Instagram saying, "In one day Trump got more fat women out walking than Michelle Obama did in eight years."

The meme caused a social media frenzy with many women calling the post, "disrespectful."

Here are some of the comments:

"This is disrespectful and sexist and one of the reasons so many women marched. Sexist jokes are never funny, I thought you were smarter than that."

"There are plenty of things in the world to laugh about, sexism isn't one of them"

"Talk about body shaming. I didn't find this funny at all. Calling people out on their appearance is not humorous at all."

"I've lost all my respect for you!"

"This isn't funny, it completely discredits such an inspirational movement."
