Lamiez Holworthy on Being Body Shamed at Work and Winning a Heroine's Award

TV and radio personality, DJ Lamiez Holworthy is best known for her incredible Djing, radio and TV hosting skills, as well as changing expensive brands like pairs of socks! And the sickening DJ is the embodiment of beauty and confidence!

As humanity, we still have a long way to go with putting a stop to body shaming and having opinions about what other people decide to wear. On social media, it is almost imposible not to come across a post or a tweet of someone having negative opinions about someone else's body and what they should and should not be wearing. The Metro FM's Penthouse Sessions and SABC 1's music show, Live Amp host, DJ Lamiez Holworthy was also a victim of this when a security guard at her workplace "complimented" her for having confidence of wearing shorts when she has cellulite. The author, Jackie Phamotse tweeted a question asking if it's a compliment when someone says it's nice seeing someone else's fat and cellulite. "Is it a compliment when you tell women that it's nice seeing their fat and cellulite... i.e 'I'm glad you can wear those shorts with so much cellulite ' kinda way" tweeted the BARE series writer, and Lamiez Holworthy replied to her tweed and said, "Wearing short shorts today and I had the security lady at work say 'o pila ngwanaka mara yho! Confidence ya gao ka shorty eo le dirope tse kana' and I [inserted a skull emoji] Because with all due respect wang tlwayela mama [love emoji]", which can be translated to 'You're so beautiful my child. Your confidence in wearing those shorts with so much cellulite'. Under Jackie's tweet, among the tweeps who shared their concerns when it comes to complimenting people while pointing out their parts which they may see as 'imperfect' was the radio and TV personality, Pearl Modiadie who said "What?! Say they look great in those shorts and keep it moving", clearly meaning that the other extra stuff is unnecessary. On positive news, Lamiez Holworthy bagged herself a Heroine's Award! On her Instagram she posed with her award and captioned "A BLACK HEROINE. Thank you @heroinesawards for deeming me worthy of such a prestigious award. Thank you for reminding me why I do what I do. That I am not crazy for working and striving for greatness- not only for myself but for those who look up to and depend on me". She continued thanking the beneficiaries of her foundation, the Lamiez Holworthy Foundation for being patient with her and thanking her mother for all the sacrifices she has made for her and for believing in her, and for accepting her award on her behalf as she was unavailable at the time. On that note, congratulations DJ Lamiez Holworthy!
