This man's attempt at body-shaming a woman was shut down in the best way by the woman herself

Bet he feels like dickhead now.

The internet can be a cruel place, with trolls doing what they do, and people making memes out of actual real life human people. Just imagine how it might feel to scroll through your feed one day and come across a picture of yourself being used for 'lols' in the cruelest of ways.

Because that's exactly what happened to plus-size model Lesego Legobane, who goes by the handle '@thickleeyonce' on Instagram. When she saw a picture of herself placed alongside a photo of model Joëlle Kayembe by Twitter user @ImLeyton, she was shocked.

Because the shallow and mean caption was "Girls that I like vs Girls that like me".

While many people would feel like they wanted to run away and hide, being humiliated in such a horrible way on such a public platform, Lesego didn't take that approach. She decided to one-up the troll with an even better comeback of her own.

"I don't like you", she bluntly wrote. And it had all the more impact because her profile picture on Twitter is the exact one Leyton had used in his meme.

Lesego has received an overwhelming amount of support for her brilliantly sassy response, having been retweeted by more than 280,000 people and liked over 900,000 times - including by the likes of Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj.

It seems like the message got through to Leyton that he'd been a complete arse, who swiftly did something of a 180.

Too little, too late, love.
