Body-shaming has been a hot topic recently and Thickleeyonce didn't take kindly to Naomi "K Naomi" Nonyane slamming the "skinny/fat topic"  as "tiring".

K Naomi bit off more than she can chew when she decided to comment on thread Thick was tagged in.

A fan tagged Thick in a tweet about 'Distraction by Bonang' asking her to launch a lingerie line for bigger busted women because of the range stops at a C cup. 

Thick then tweeted that it's "easy for skinny women to come across as fashionable"  because their wardrobe options are "limitless". And "as a fat woman, [she] can’t do last-minute shopping for an event" because she has to go through "many channels before getting decent clothes".

K Naomi then jumped into the conversation by quote tweeting Thick, saying that the "skinny/fat topic is getting tiring" and "skinny women have struggles too". 

Furthermore, that "a confident woman will wear whatever she wants and make it look as good as she wants." Asking if "we can drop [this] conversation". 

Thick then took to Instagram to call K Naomi out and to explain why the topic is not "tiring". She wrote: "KNaomi's tweet got a lot of people feeling it's okay to attack me even more for being pro ALL BODIES and addressing fatphobia. I am abused online every single day & I can’t address it because ppl are tired of me talking about being body shamed. 

"Whenever I speak about fat women's struggle, I am told that it is getting old & I need to stop talking abt it bcz ppl are tired of hearing abt it. These “tired”ppl are the same ppl that are represented in everything. A woman with big breasts will go to 12 different shops and still not get a bra that fits her, and when she does get it costs 3 million and not even cute. A woman with small breasts, will walk into any store and find a bra for less than R200 in her size. 

"A fat woman will settle for a pair of jeans dat aren’t stylish coz there's nothing else. A smaller woman will walk into a store & find different types of jeans in her size. This is what we call "Thin privilege", u are spoiled for choice, ur not told "Lose weight so that u can dress how uv always wanted to dress". No one is disputing that smaller women have struggle, but we cannot place them on the same pedestal as fat women's struggles. Smaller people are quick to dismiss fat peoples struggles the same way heterosexual people dismiss issues that affect gay & trans people. ‬ 

"‪The same way white people dismiss racial issues.‬ ‪The same way light skinned black people dismiss colorism. ‬ ‪The same way able people dismiss people with disabilities issues.‬ ‪The same way local people dismiss xenophobic issues. ‬ ‪The same way rich people dismiss poor peoples issues. ‬ ‪When it doesn't affect you, it is "tiring" & u don't want to hear about it for a long time because you see things from a privileged perspective. ‬ 

"‪I will never stop preaching about the importance of body positivity and representation until fat women, "ugly" women have the same freedom as mainstream women, so get tired all you want, I have a big following and I am going to use it to make a difference and to fight for the rights of those that are continuously discriminated against.‬ (sic)

After Thick read K Naomi for filth, the All Access Mzansi presenter stated that she hoped her response didn't seem rude.
