Lesego ‘Thickleeyonce’ Legobane is not letting negative comments get her down following her horrific crash
She clapped back at an online troll who tried to make her feel bad for being on social media during her hospital stay.
The body positive influencer shocked her fans last week when she revealed that she had been involved in a crash and was in ICU.
“This has been the most traumatic experience of my life. I was so close to losing my life, but my God said ‘Not yet my child. Not yet’. I am still in shock and I still can’t stop crying,” she captioned a picture of herself.
Thickleeyonce shared another update at the weekend.
“It’s crazy how my whole life changed in just a few seconds. I was meant to be on a plane this morning to go on a two-week long vacation to Thailand with my family but clearly the universe and God had different plans. It’s been the longest week of my life in hospital…
“I have at least one mental breakdown a day because I keep having flashbacks that my brain won’t delete. I am VERY grateful for my life however I still have so much sadness in my heart… I still have so many unanswered questions,” she wrote.
One of her followers did not understand why she was posting on social media while in ICU
“B***h is legit dying and still on the gram?” the Instagram user wrote.
Thickleeyonce hit back.
“I’m not dying. Try again, and please don’t shame me for doing things that make me feel like myself. It’s hard enough being in this depressive state of mind,” she replied.
Negative comment aside, Thickleeyonce has been flooded with messages of support ever since the crash
Several of Thickleeyonce’s famous followers, including Nhlanhla Nciza, Liesl Laurie and Lalla Hirayama, have wished her well.
“Omg omg omg. Praying for your speedy recovery!!!! I am so sorry for what you went through! Focus on your healing and we will all keep you in our prayers,” Lalla wrote.
Nhlanhla commented: “Oh no little sis I’m so sorry to here about this, the devil is a liar. We serve a living God and we are grateful that he protected you and your family. You are loved sis.”

I can’t believe it’s already been a week since my tragic accident. This pic is from last Sunday after church , just before the accident. It’s crazy how my whole life changed in just a few seconds. I was meant to be on a plane this morning to go on a 2 week long vacation to Thailand with my family but clearly the universe and God had different plans. It’s been the longest week of my life in hospital. Everything still feels fresh, I have at least one mental breakdown a day because I keep having flashbacks that my brain won’t delete. I am VERY grateful for my life however I still have so much sadness in my heart…I still have so many unanswered questions. I am still deeply hurt by what happened. Half of my body is in so much pain, it breaks my heart having to watch someone else bath me from head to toe, having to use a tube to pee and stuff…not being able to do the most basic things without someone’s help…it’s so depressing. Tomorrow morning I have a very big operation that I’m anxious about. I’ve never had an operation in my life, ever. I am so scared. I know God is with me and in me and that it’s going to be a successful operation but I am still so scared. I also just want to take this moment to thank each and every one of you who have sent me positive messages and prayers, I knew y’all loved me but not this much and it makes me so emotional knowing I have all of you thinking of me. Thank you so much. Unfortunately they do not allow flowers in ICU and because of my mental instability, I’m still not comfortable having others come see me in hospital, either than my family. But I do appreciate everyone who has offered to come see me, it means so much. I’m sorry haven’t been picking up your phone calls either, I’m still so fragile and can barely hold a conversation. But I’ve read all your well wishes and I hold them very close to my heart. Nonetheless, please do keep me in your prayers for my operation tomorrow. 🥺😢🙏🏾 PS: My dress is from @lee_bex 🖤 and please do tap the link on my bio , I have a new video on my YouTube channel that I shot last week I will keep y’all posted throughout the week to let you know how the operation went. Love you all!
