Maya Jama Expertly Shuts Down Troll For ‘Hyper Sexualising’ Her Body

Maya Jama Expertly Shuts Down Troll For ‘Hyper Sexualising’ Her Body

In utterly depressing but not at all surprising news, Maya Jama has been forced to shut down trolls for criticising her low cut dress during a recent telly appearance.

The TV and radio presenter, 25, has been a smash-hit with viewers since starting her new role on Peter Crouch's Save Our Summer, but, unfortunately, a small minority still seemed more concerned with her ensemble as she hit screens at the weekend.

Yep, after watching the Saturday night entertainment show, Twitter was awash with comments about Maya's neckline, including one woman oddly claimed the ensemble made her feel "awkward".

Watch a clip below, and prepare for the biggest eye roll EVER:

In response to the woman's tweet, Maya replied: "I appreciate your concern. I am able and allowed to dress how I please. If you feel uncomfortable by my boobs sitting in my dress that's on you sis.

"We're all fighting for equality and similar treatment to our male counterparts. Don't let the side down by hyper sexualising my bod. If you're uncomfortable with my boobs that's on you".

Amen sista.

Unfortunately, this woman wasn't the only bully who seemed to have nothing better to do than criticise Maya's appearance.

As another vile troll called her "ridiculously obese" (we mean.... REALLY!?), the presenter once again proved she was the master of the Twitter takedown, clapping back: "please focus on your own vitamin intake".

LOL.

She added: "Sometimes I retweet trolls not for sympathy or for you guys to get at them but just to remind you that people are MAD on here...

"And more time if someones gone out the way to be mean to a stranger unprovoked it's a reflection on them not you," she added.

"I laugh at it now cause I'm used to it".

Maybe one day women in the spotlight won't *have* to get used to trolling?!

We can dream...
