Leyton Mokgerepi probably thought he was creating a relatable meme when he tweeted this:
What ended up happening, however, was the complete opposite. People immediately ostracized him online for posting a fat joke at another woman’s expense. A woman, who, actually looks pretty darn good in her photo, if you ask me. And most importantly, of course, is that women don’t have to meet any one standard of beauty, and don’t exist just for other people to find them attractive.
Something that other Twitter users were quick to point out as well.
And as it turns out, because the internet is a place full of cats and karma, and in this case, boatloads of karma, the woman in the photo Leyton tried shaming came out, on the record, that she in fact doesn’t like him.
He tried to save face after her post by calling her, “Girlfriend Goals.”
But it was clear for all to see it was a feeble attempt, so Twitter reminded him of how badly he was dragged.
Her tweet even caught the attention of some celebs.
At the end of it all, @Thickleeyonce was floored by the positive response people had for her after Leyton’s initial attempt to shame her.
So the next time you try to body shame someone online, remember: you might just get dragged.
