Every so often, Twitter can become a wondrous place, where people unite for a common good. This week, that common good was shutting down a jerk attempting to objectify women.
It all started with the below tweet, comparing a beautiful girl wearing a white and red dress to a piece of cheesecake, accompanied by death emojis. Charming, huh.

Users accused ‘Chump’ of body shaming and objectifying women, encouraging other women to post photos of their best cheesecake inspired looks with the hashtag. Meanwhile Chump has been loving the attention and continually posting negative tweets.
With this, #CompareYourselfToCheescake2016 was born, as women clapped back at ‘2 Pump Chump’ finding their best cheesecake doppelganger, in solidarity with the women being roasted.
“This a——- compared a girl to a cheesecake so now we’re all comparing ourselves to cheesecake,” tweeted one woman. “Join us.”
