Kamene Goro is not a small or petite woman by any stretch of the imagination, that we all know. Yes, I said it.
She is one Kenyan woman who has run with the body positive movement that has gained traction in an age when social media is a big part of our lives.
She once flaunted her big body wearing only lingerie. While many ladies supported her, there were those who did not appreciate her showing off her body in all its glory. To counter the negative reactions she got, she wrote:
YOU JOKE ABOUT MY BODY BEING TOO MUCH TO HANDLE. THIGHS AND HIPS TOO THICK FOR YOUR HANDS A** AND TITS TOO JUICY FOR YOUR MOUTH BUT BOY IT ISN’T MY BODY YOU NEED TO WORRY ABOUT IT’S MY MIND.
She even added in another post:
I’ve never been small, I was put on diets from as early as the age of 6, not because I was unhealthy but because society frowned upon me being bigger than the rest, School was a whole other battlefield, straight up to my A levels.
See I wasn’t bothered with how I looked, what bothered me was how everybody else including my family was bothered by it.
I realized the problem was not me, I had no problem with my body, I was fighting my body because everybody else was fighting it.
So as you can see, she is happy with her body as it is. Yesterday she decided to show more of it and did so on her Instagram page. She was at the Rooftop Pool at the Radisson Blu wearing a sleek black bikini.
The caption that accompanied her photo was:
But that isn’t what was interesting about the picture. It is about what wasn’t there. The comments have been deleted. Check a screenshot of the photo before and after. One has 82 comments, the second has none. What happened to the comments?
One can only speculate. Did the NRG presenter block and delete the comments because they were overwhelmingly negative? Only she knows.
