Roseanne Barr thinks it’s about damn time Lizzo pays homage to her and we are rolling our eyes hard.
According to Pagesix the “Roseanne” alum took to Instagram over the weekend to remember her Vanity Fair cover from February 1994, which featured the comedian rocking black lingerie while sitting in a wooden chair and holding a cut lemon.
However, instead of sharing a touching message about the moment, she questioned, “When is @lizzobeeating going to thank me for paving the way.”
Several fans praised Barr, 70, in her comments section for being one of the first stars to display a curvier body type in the media.
“You paved the way for SO MANY on so many levels! You don’t nearly get the credit you’re [sic] deserve!” one fan wrote.
“You paved the way not only for big girls but for women in comedy, women in power, etc. ICON! ?,” another added.
“You’re the original. When these untalented people are forgotten, you’ll be long remembered. You’re loved, and you’re gonna be bigger than ever ?,” a third user commented.
Other fans took Barr’s comment as shade toward Lizzo, 35.
“You definitely helped the bigger girls however there were many before and will be many after you. How about celebrating with lizzo rather than bashing. Women need to lift women up not down. Not hating freaking love you just wish you went about this different,” a critic wrote.
“@lizzobeeating does not owe you anything! I like both of you but you’re reaching! She’s a singer, you’re not,” another said.
“Why do you need [to be] thanked? You either wanted to do it or not. Be grateful. I love ya but this obsession with lizzo thanking you is BS. Thank you Roseanne. Hopefully that helps!!!” another person added.
While Lizzo has not responded to Barr’s comments, she has been very vocal about promoting body positivity.
Aside from sharing her message in her music, she also created the shapewear line Yitty, which is size-inclusive and “based on the principles of self-love, radical inner confidence,” per the brand’s website.
“Your body is perfectly yours, even if it ain’t perfect to anybody else,” the Grammy winner said in an Instagram video in December 2020.
“I’ve spent so much time in this body and I am no different than you — still struggling to find balance, still trying to mend my relationship with food, my anxiety, my back fat. It gets easier. I’ve spent my hardest days trying to love me.”
