Thickleeyonce is a proud plus size woman because she has managed to make bank with her body. She models for big brands for their plus size range and is also a photographer. However, not everyone agrees with her lifestyle and that's where the trolling comes in. She felt as though it was a bit unfair for people to criticize her for wanting to eat whatever she wants, whereas a skinnier woman would want to eat the exact same thing but get given the free pass.

It all started when Thicklee tweeted about waiting for the pizza place to open. Then a woman came at her sideways, "Baby girl, how about gym? I mean come on. Too early for junk. We are thick and all also but should at least try and promote healthy lifestyles. Not to get skinny but to be healthier!"

Thickleeyonce disciplined her and advised her to worry about her own health.
The YouTuber has had it with the "fat-police" and came at them guns blazing. "I see skinny people tweeting about eating KFC for breakfast , no one will say anything about their health, but let me talk about craving chocolate at 8am, then everyone is a doctor who’s worried about my health. Please. Gtfoh.

"You don’t care about fat people’s well-being, you just want to police our bodies and mask your fatphobia as “concern” for our health. Just stop," she said.
Songstress Simphiwe Dana came to her defense and said skinny people are not the healthiest people either. “The way the skinnies are dying of liver and lung problems that time.”

This did not sit well with a lot of people and she has since been called out for it. "I think you could have used a better word than “skinnies” because if someone were to come on here and say “Fatties” it would be an issue or you’d call it 'bOdY ShAmiNg'," a tweep wrote.

"Huh? This is such a double standard comment why body shame anyone skinny or not ? Thick or not ? Fat or not ? This comment was so unnecessary especially from umtu omdala that could be the voice of better reasoning."

Lastly, "Just because you also identify as Skinny you believe so strongly that grants you the right to talk down on skinny people?? You better than you understand that we admire you and see you as a role model, when you body shame what do you hope to achieve?"
