Lesedi opened up to Candice Modiselle about the fact that she was never cast in roles due to her appearance, despite the fact that she possessed the necessary talent. They discussed the topic on Candice’s podcast titled “The Five Minute Call.”

“There have been occasions when it has been real. There have been a few auditions that I’ve been to where the thing that hurt the most was the casting director telling me that “out of everyone you had the best performance but they went a certain way because you didn’t have the look.” Therefore, it was irrelevant whether or not you could completely embody that character. After that, it was all about the appearance, and if it wasn’t about the appearance, it was all about the prominence.”

“It was around that time that it really hit home for me that you have to fight twice as hard, and already I’m fighting twice as hard just based off of who I am as a person. Because of the way that I look, the way that I express myself, and the way that my body is shaped, I now have to fight even harder.”

Lamiez Holworthy, another female celebrity who is always promoting the idea that one should have a positive attitude toward one’s body, is someone who has been the target of her share of bullying and body shaming. She would get trolled every time she exposed her dark inner thighs and her thick body because of the contrast between the two.

Lamiez reflected on the experience of being bullied on Live Amp due to her outfit in a lengthy post that she published on Facebook.

She began by saying, “After reading the crazy comments under this post, I decided to use this opportunity to TEACH,” as her opening statement. “After reading the crazy comments under this post.” “There’s a good reason why I didn’t use photo editing software or a filter to hide the appearance of my thighs, and that reason is simply because… Any person, regardless of their overall skin tone, is capable of developing dark skin on the inner thighs. It takes place when the skin on the inner thigh produces an excessive amount of the pigment melanin, which is responsible for giving skin its color.”

“This condition is referred to as hyperpigmentation. It’s possible that the discoloration of dark inner thighs will spread all the way down to the bikini or groin area. Child of African descent, know that this is perfectly normal and okay “she said before going on the offensive against her trolls.

“And to everyone else, before you become forward, or anyone else for that matter, ask yourself, “Ke tsena kae” (what does that have to do with me?) before you become forward. Because I don’t see a problem with it, I don’t see why you should either???”

“My name is Lamiez Holworthy, and this is the most authentic version of myself that you will ever see. I’ll be damned if I edit any of my pictures to make myself look smaller or to cover up any cellulite or stretch marks I might have.

“You are aware of why… Because of social media and the messed-up standards that it promotes, I have had it with women of all ages putting pointless pressure on themselves to be thin and attractive. Imagine trying to look like someone who doesn’t even look like themselves?! “— I quote her.

“Because I am a public figure with millions of followers, the majority of whom are women of varying ages, it is my duty to demonstrate to them that it is OKAY TO BE NORMAL and that NO ONE can use your flaws against you when you make peace with them. The majority of my followers are women.
