Lizzo slammed people on TikTok that attempt to diagnose overweight content creators.

What We Know:

  • The Grammy Award-winning artist spreads messages about body positivity on her Instagram and TikTok. Most of her posts center on accepting one’s body for what they look like and using food for fuel. She ensures her followers do not conform to society’s beauty standards. However, many of her followers feel she is promoting an unhealthy lifestyle for young fans.
  • In a recent TikTok post, she called out some of these critics. In the video, she is eating a snack of pomegranate seeds and coconut water, a snack made popular by her. The singer begins by saying she has seen posts by other “fat girls” who stay fit but cannot lose weight. She affirms the recordings are important because regardless of their intentions for weight loss, they show that everybody and their functions are different.
  • She continues her TikTok by shaming “fake doctors.”

The vocalist questions, “What really bothers me are the fake doctors in the comments saying, ‘Oh, you have this,’ or ‘You might have this condition.’ No. What if I’m just fat? What if this is just my body?”

  • Lizzo then gives viewers a message of reassurance by saying that not all bodies are designed to be slim and toned. She concluded it by saying one’s body is one-of-a-kind. The post currently has 1.3 Million likes.
  • In an interview with Vogue, the performer said she wants to be “body-normative.” She believes that by saying she is “body positive,” she is being lazy. According to her, the body positivity movement helps those with back fat, hanging bellies, unseparated thighs, and stretch marks. Yet, the artist believes another demographic represents it.

The artist wants to be known for something other than being “fat and Black.” She told David Letterman in his show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction that she wants people to focus on her contributions to current social issues. She wants the public to forget about her image.
