Thickleeyonce hits back at claims Nasty C ‘fat shamed’ her in new song

Plus size model Thickleeyonce came out in defence of rapper Nasty C, after tweeps heard him mention Thickleeyonce on one of his tracks and claimed he had fat-shamed her.

In one of his songs, Deep Pockets, which features Rowlene, the rapper spits, “My shirt like Thickleeyonce, it's all rounded/ Everybody jealous, everybody mad I read the secret, just to go shout it ...” When one tweep tagged Thickleeyonce to celebrate her “name drop moment” another tweep asked why that line didn't raise red flags as fat shaming. Thickleeyonce quickly shared h...

Thickleeyonce Schools K Naomi On ‘Skinny Privilege’

ThickLeeyonce is all about body positivism and uplifting women to love themselves and their bodies, so when Naomi K swerved into her lane, ThickLeeyonce was not about to move over.
