Kiss FM presenter caught up in plagiarism claims

Radio presenter Linda Nyangweso has been caught up in a storm after she allegedly plagiarized a post from a plus size American model to announce her pregnancy.

Linda took to Instagram five days ago to make the all-important revelation. But there was problem. Her post was lifted with little paraphrasing from Tess Holliday, an American plus size model, also made the same day.

And no, it was not a repost.

Some of her supporters have questioned the reason someone would plagiarize such an important announcement.

Here is Linda Nyangweso’s post:

Yes, I’ll admit it, I’m really bad at keeping a secret so big! We’re having a baby! We wanted to keep it a hush hush as long as possible, but we are finally able to shout it on the rooftop! Plus size women face so much stigma & doubt over what our bodies are capable of. It’s something I feel doesn’t get enough media attention, but I hope that the next few months of my pregnancy will help change the conversation. All bodies are amazing! Thank you for the continued support in this exciting time in our lives p.s. I’m due in June #effyourbeautystandards #fatgirlshavebabiestoo”

And this is Tess Holliday’s post:

Yes, it’s [email protected] & I are having a baby! We wanted to keep it a secret as long as possible, but we are finally able to share! Plus size women face so much stigma & doubt over what our bodies are capable of. It’s something I feel doesn’t get enough media attention, but I hope that the next few months of my pregnancy will help change the conversation. All bodies are amazing! Thank you for the continued support in this exciting time in our lives p.s. I’m due in June #effyourbeautystandards @peoplemag”

Now be the judge.
