Plus-size model destroys awful dude who tried to make a meme out of her.

It used to be acceptable to make fun of people because of their weight. But thanks to the body positivity movement, a growing number of people are proudly standing up and proclaiming that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes.

One guy who clearly missed the memo and paid for it dearly is Leyton Mokgerepi from South Africa.

Mokgerepi not only tried to fat shame a woman on Twitter, he chose to do it to Lesego Legobane, a plus-size model, blogger, and body positivity activist.


Big mistake.

Mokgerepi created a meme that compared Legobane with a thinner model, Joëlle Kayembe, that reads, “Girls that I like vs. girls that like me.” The sizeist joke claims that he likes thin women, but only larger women like him in return.

Legobane tweet-slapped Mokgerepi back to the womb with one perfect sentence.

The tweet got over 300,000 retweets and was liked by over 940,000 people, including Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande, and Ava DuVernay.

Mokgerepi thought he could set things right by saying Legobane was his ideal woman, but nobody bought his BS.

Sometimes the smallest gesture can turn your entire day around. You find a $5 bill in the pockets of your jeans. There's no traffic on the way home from work. Or by some divine intervention, you get 11 chicken McNuggets in your 10-piece box.

Of course, if you've ever had such a blessing, you know your first thought is, "Must be some sort of mistake."

But do you return the extra McNugget? Nope. You don't even feel an ounce of guilt for it. You dunk it in barbecue sauce and relish it like a gift from the gods.

A former McDonald's employee in Edmonton, Canada let the world know that sometimes an extra McNugget is not a mistake and he's become a viral hero.

When Iowa Valley Junior-Senior High School principal Janet Behrens observed her students in the cafeteria, she was dismayed to see that they spent more time looking down at their phones than they did looking at and interacting with each other. So last year, she implemented a new policy that's having a big impact.

Children in middle school can be super shallow when it comes to fashion. To be part of the in-crowd, you have to wear the right shoes and brand-name clothing, and listen to the right music.

The sad thing is that kids that age can be so creative, but they're forced into conformity by their peers.

Some people never escape this developmental phase and spend their entire lives wasting their money on material goods and judging those who do not or can not.

They say that kids say the darnedest things, and seriously, they do. Anyone who has spent any significant amount of time with young children knows that sometimes the things they say can blow your mind.

Since teachers spend more time around little kids than anyone else, they are particularly privy to their profound and hilarious thoughts. That's why NYC kindergarten teacher Alyssa Cowit started collecting kid quotes from teachers around the country and sharing them on her Instagram account, Live from Snack Time, as well as her websiteand other social media channels.
