Plus-sized blogger has the best response to body-shaming meme

Despite a rise in bloggers and influences speaking out against unrealistic beauty standards and 'perfect' Instagram shots, there are still a small minority of people who feel the need to put others down.

Sure, it would be great if all this negativity never existed in the first place, but isn't it great when a foolish attempt at body-shaming backfires completely?

Well, that's exactly what happened to Twitter user, Leyton Mokgerepi.

Earlier this week, plus-size blogger, Lesego Legobane, was stunned to discovered that her photo had been used in a meme posted by Leyton.

The image was placed beside a photo of a slender woman wearing a barely-there swimsuit, with the caption: “Girls that I like vs girls that like me.”

While these type of comparison memes are generally intended to be light-hearted and funny, Leyton's attempt was quite the opposite.

But of course, Lesego had the perfect response, simply replying: “I don't like you.”

Her reply has since racked up over 200,000 retweets and close to 700,000 likes.

Leyton later tried to backtrack by tweeting the same image along with the caption “Girlfriend goals” – but no one was buying it.

Bravo Lesego, bravo!
