Jamie Higdon Randolph from Cleveland, Tennessee, has gained hundreds of thousands of fans after posting a sassy video message on Facebook directed at women who like to wear ‘leggins’ – as she labels them in her Southern drawl – as pants, entitled simply Leggings Ain’t Pants‬.

‘Ladies, it’s pretty much leggin’ weather,’ she says at the beginning of her video. ‘I love leggin’ weather. I don’t care if you don’t like leggins, don’t judge me, they are comfortable. They don’t cut into you, they’re always the right length. You can dress them up, dress them down, you can look like a frat girl or you can look pretty classy in them depending on what you choose to pair with them.’

Jamie, wearing a red gingham shirt and her blonde hair pulled back with a headband, goes on to explain how she had misplaced her own leggings that morning and went to borrow her daughter MaKenzie’s pair, but found they weren’t quite the right fit. She went off to buy herself a new pair from the store and while on her way was inspired to put her thoughts to video.

‘Some of you people like to use‪ leggins’ as britches, as pants, pants,’ she says. ‘That’s not how they’re supposed to be worn.

‘If you can’t wear a shirt that covers your tail so that I can’t tell that you got some Aztec-print thongs on, you don’t need to be wearing ’em, [sic]’ she adds.

That’s rule number one, Jamie explains, adding that if a pair of leggings are so tight that others can see tattoos through them, then they ‘shouldn’t be worn, period. That’s called pantyhose, honey.’

Next Jamie takes aim at white leggings, which she called ‘a big old no-no,’ adding in an emphatic ‘lord Jesus!’ to her statement.

‘Most of the time it doesn’t matter how big you are,’ she says. ‘As long as you keep your tail end covered. You can be a big ole’ girl. I’m a big girl, I’m a thick girl! I’ve got thick legs, I’ve got thick calves, I’ve got a big old butt, and I’ve got a big old gut!’

She recommends to her viewers that they should wear a tunic or at least a little dress to cover their ‘tails’.

‘Nobody wants to see what kind of underwear you’ve got on,’ she says. ‘Nobody wants to see anything up in any body part that you have, I assure you. I mean, that stuff’s best left for the bedroom!’

Jamie finishes her two-minute-15-second video with a final simple statement: ‘Don’t do it. You’re welcome.’

It’s easy enough to know why this video has gone viral: because everyone is sick of the leggings-as-pants trend. So here’s an idea, ladies: stop doing it!
