BOITY SHUTS DOWN ‘FAT SHAMING’ TROLL
FAT-SHAMING is one of the most common forms of cyberbullying and celebrities are often the target of this abusive behaviour.
Rapper and media personality Boity Thulo refused to be bullied by a rude troll who posted a snide comment about her being “fat”.
It all started when Thulo shared pictures of her and her mother, Modiehi Thulo, on Mother’s Day.
In the snaps, the duo are rocking matching dresses at the recent launch of Thulo’s premium alcoholic and non-alcoholic sparkling fruit beverage brand, BT Signature. S
he captioned the post: “My person, #Happy MothersDay.”
Fans were raving about how gorgeous Thulo’s mom is, but one Twitter user chose to fat-shame Boity. He wrote: “Why isn’t she fat like u?”
But Thulo hit back, letting the troll know that body-shaming is wrong. She wrote: “Because jou p*** is fat.”
This is not the first time that the star had to fight off fat-shamers.
In 2019, she shared pictures of her 29th birthday bash in Taboo night club in Sandton.
She was carried into the upmarket club by topless hunks. A troll commented: “They must’ve struggled with your weight. Lol. Sdudla”. Sdudla is a derogatory term for a fat person.
Again Thulo replied: “Sdudla ke mmao”, loosely translated to “Fattie is your mother”.
The star has recently started documenting her weight loss journey on social media.
And she has kept her promise to shed the weight. Thulo now serves major body goals.
