Lizzo has responded to body-shaming commentary yet again after a Twitter user recently posted a picture of the Good As Hell singer on stage with the caption, “How is Lizzo still THIS fat when she’s constantly moving this much on stage?! I wonder what she must be eating.”

“I JUST logged on and the app and this is the type of shit I see about me on a daily basis,” Lizzo wrote, noting to another fan that she doesn’t search for her name on social media, but it appears regardless due to algorithms. “It’s really starting to make me hate the world,” she continued.

“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 bullshit.”

She then responded to another post that referenced her weight being her “brand,” adding, “Y’all really need to touch grass… I’m not trying to BE fat I’m not trying to BE smaller I’m literally just trying to live and be healthy.

“This is what my body looks like even when I’m eating super clean and working out! Yall speak on shit y’all know NOTHING ABOUT and I’m starting to get heated,” From there, she sent off a short and simple tweet: “I HATE IT HERE.”

Lizzo continued to explain that despite the love and acclaim she receives for her music and performances, it “definitely” doesn’t outweigh the hate she’s subjected to on social media. Getting close to her breaking point, she said, “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 FUCKING FARM…”

Signing off, Lizzo wrote, “ALSO: to the people who haven’t had an original thought or fresh air in years… 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.

“I’ve always led w my TALENT… 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 shit on?! man fuck y’all”.

Next month, Lizzo will headline Splendour In The Grass festival and embark on an Australian tour. Tkay Maidza will join the US music sensation at all the shows.
