Lizzo cannot seem to escape the negativity about her body on social media and she is expressing her frustration about it on Twitter.
The highly accomplished artist said she is tired of people simply focusing on her weight.
One Twitter user shared a picture of Lizzo, saying, “How is Lizzo still THIS fat when she’s constantly moving this much on stage?! I wonder what she must be eating.”
Lizzo caught wind of the tweet and instantly shut the user down.
“I JUST logged on and the app and this is the type of sh*t I see about me on a daily basis,” she said. “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…I’m tired of explaining myself all the time and I just wanna get on this app w/out seeing my name in some bullsh*t. Yall speak on sh*t y’all know NOTHING ABOUT and I’m starting to get heated.”
The Love definitely do not outweigh the Hate on social media… all because I’m fat???? This is CRAZY,” she said.
Then she threatened to leave it all behind for good!
“Y’all don’t know how close I be to giving up on everyone and quitting and enjoying my money and my man on a F*CKING FARM…,” she said.
According to Uproxx Fans shared support with Lizzo and encouraged not to search her own name on social media.
Lizzo then shared that while she actually does not ever search her name, she simply cannot get past the algorithm.
“I literally NEVER search my name this stuff just comes up on my TL & my FYP it’s wild. I swear I just wanna look at dance videos and science news and this sh*t comes in every day…,” she said.
Over the years, Lizzo had maintained a message of body-positivity and self-love in her music. She reiterated this in follow-up tweets, one of which read, “BEING FAT ISNT MY ‘BRAND’ BEING FAT IS WHAT MY BODY LOOKS THAT. THATS IT. THATS ALL. My ‘brand’ is FEEL GOOD MUSIC. My ‘brand’ is CHAMPIONING ALL PEOPLE. My ‘brand’ is BLACK GIRL LIBERATION.”
This comes shortly after Lizzo set her Twitter account to private recently.
She also noted that the current landscape of pop music seems to be emulating sounds she created years before they became mainstream.
“I’ve always led w my TALENT…,” she said. “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 sh*t on?! man f*ck y’all.”
We do not know what it is about Lizzo, but people just need to leave her alone.
Lizzo has since made her Twitter private.
