Lizzo is speaking out against fat shaming

Lizzo recently honored the legendary Tina Turner, who passed away on May 24, with a stunning performance of “Proud Mary.” Unfortunately, a video of the performance surfaced on social media, and a commenter made negative remarks about Lizzo’s weight, leading to fat-shaming. Lizzo responded to her social media followers to address the hurtful comments.

“I JUST logged on and the app and this is the type of s— I see about me on a daily basis,” Lizzo tweeted. “It’s really starting to make me hate the world. Then someone in the comments said I eat ‘lots of fast food.’ I LITERALLY STOPPED EATING FAST FOOD YEARS AGO…”

The “Cuz, I Love You” singer opened up about the possibility of leaving the music industry. Additionally, she emphasized that her body size should not be a factor in determining her personal brand.

“The Love definitely do not outweigh the Hate on social media… all because I’m fat????” she tweeted. “This is CRAZY.”

She proceeded to share…

“I’ve always led w my TALENT…,” she tweeted. “But when I dropped Good As Hell feel good music was ‘corny.’ When I dropped Juice disco pop wasn’t ‘for them.’ When I was body positive in 2016 being body positive was ‘pandering.’ Now everybody on that wave and I’m still s— on?! man f— y’all.”
