Thick Leeyonce goes viral and gets Nicki Minaj's attention

Johannesburg – Blogger and photographer Lesego Legobane, known as Thick Leeyonce, had major stars backing her when she responded to a hater on Twitter. 

It all started when a Twitter user posted a meme with the following caption: “Girls that I like VS Girls that like me,” using a snap of Thick Leeyonce to reference the girls that like him, while a petite model was meant to represent the girls he likes.   

Take a look at the post below: 

But Leeyonce, who is all about body-positivity, simply responded with the following: “I don’t like you.” And that response went viral. 

Soon international websites picked up on the post, and even Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj gave it like.

 The viral post has garnered over 580 000 likes (at the time of publishing).
