Boity Thulo is being Called Fat
Designer Quiteria found himself in some major trouble following the claims made by Lesego Tlhabi, warmly known as Coconut Kelz. The comedian and presenter accuses the designers for fat shaming her when she wanted to try out their dresses. Body shaming once again gains the spotlight and as always women are the ones getting criticised.
Lesego tells her story with waste as the designer embarrassed her in front of his clients during a dress fitting claiming that he called her “fatty boom boom. “So today I went to a famous designer who was told my sizes way beforehand because it’s for TV. Does he not then declare very loudly in the store after a failed try-on that he has nothing for me and then uses words like “fatty boom boom” to describe how I’d look in the designs?
“Actually nah. It’s Quiteria and George. What happens from there is above me. It was shit shit shit. If I lose this opportunity, I lose it. I will never ever wear something from there. And it was “Q” himself,” she said. Defending himself, Quiteria said he never called her fat so he will not apologise for using such words. He even fat shamed other celebrities including Terry Pheto, rapper Boity Thulo and Dineo Langa. Boity’s reaction to the whole drama is one that was expected. She posted a GIF questioning why was she mentioned? “now why am I in it?”
