The peanut gallery (AKA Twitter) chimed in right away, of course. We’re not body shaming here. We just have some questions, like…

Another shared an image of West and Kim Kardashian looking thicc in an alternate reality as totally normal, not famous humans.

The question is: Is thicc Kanye the new Kanye?
