On Wednesday (31 May), the Grammy-winning artist responded to a tweet about her weight, writing: “I JUST logged on [to] the app and this is the type of s*** I see about me on a daily basis.”
Beneath, she included a repost of the original comment, which read: “How is Lizzo still THIS fat when she’s constantly moving this much on stage?! I wonder what she must be eating.”
The “About Damn Time” singer added: “Then someone in the comments said I eat ‘lots of fast food.’
“I LITERALLY STOPPED EATING FAST FOOD YEARS AGO…,” she clarified, saying that she was “tired of explaining myself all the time and I just wanna get on this app w/out seeing my name in some bulls***”.
In another post, Lizzo reacted to a second comment, which read: “I don’t think Lizzie wants to be smaller… yet… If she did, she would be. It’s her brand.”
Correcting them, the 35-year-old pop singer said: “This is what my body looks like even when I’m eating super clean and working out.
“Y’all speak on s*** y’all know NOTHING ABOUT and I’m starting to get heated.”
Following up, Lizzo said: “The Love definitely do not outweigh the Hate on social media… all because I’m fat???? This is CRAZY.
“I HATE IT HERE,” she wrote in a separate post. “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***ING FARM.”
In an April interview with The Cut, she urged fans to stop commenting on her body.
“I don’t need your positivity or your negativity,” she said.
