The phrase 'skinny legend' is used by "stans" of celebrities which are fans that take the extreme route and have social media accounts of their favorite starlet. The most recent 'skinny legend' and meme of the month Raini Rodriguez is classed as a skinny legend.

A skinny legend DOES NOT make fun of your weight or anything to do with you or your body. It means something that is "iconic" and "cant be stopped" which is why Beyonce, Mariah Carey and Ariana Grande are referred to as this and now Raini Rodriquez.
Person 1: I love that fiesta salsa song it is so funny!
Person 2: Don't be rude to the skinny legend, Raini Rodriguez.
Person 1: I don't know who she is?
Person 2: She won 90 grammy's in one night.
Person 1: Wha?
Person 2: She is a skinny legend who won 90 grammy awards okay?
