In an Instagram Story, Lee wrote that Asian girls who wear size six or S are actually M-sized, which she deemed as "fat".

"In Asia, S means M, M means L. Anything above M is as sinful as obesity," Lee said to her one million followers.

She then stated that she is a size two or XXS and encouraged her fans to drop to size four or XS.

"If you are size six and above, please stop eating and move your a** to the gym already," she added.

In Mandarin, she wrote that there is no such thing as clothes that can make you look skinny, and that the only way to look skinny all the time is to actually be skinny.

Screenshots of her statement have since gone viral on social media, and even sparked memes

One meme was shared over 3,000 times at the time of writing.

"Honestly, all the hate you're receiving, you really brought it upon yourself. I'm sorry but did you not reread your post before you shared it to the world? You honestly don't deserve your fans," another netizen chastised.

One netizen wrote, "Do you even know the meaning of obese? How can you ask the people who are wearing size M and above to lose weight just because you think you're skinny and pretty?"
