TikTok may have taken over on social media, but that doesn’t mean Lizzo is going to stand for anyone using her name to troll others.
The singer, 32, had the best response to finding out people have been commenting her name on TikTok posts featuring ‘big girls’ because actually it’s a move that is more fool you.
Lizzo, who has become known for embracing and spreading body positivity, clapped back: ‘Every time there is a big girl on this app, I find that people always put my name in the comments. And to the people who always be putting my name in the comments, THANK YOU.’
Insisting tagging her name is a compliment, Lizzo explained: ‘Because you know what? If every time you see a big girl on this app, loving on herself and putting herself out there and being confident and loving her body, you think of me.
‘Or you think she looks like me. B**ch, that is a what? Compliment.’
Lizzo continued: ‘That means I’m out here doing what I’m supposed to be doing. Letting you b**ches know that next time you try to make fun of a woman for her body, or her size, that b**ch we out here and we don’t give a f**k.
‘We’re bad b**ches and we’re confident and we’re cover stars and, yeah, we get the motherf**kin’ views, the likes, and the motherf**kin clicks because we it.
‘So, thanks. And to all the big girls, I see you. Keep putting my name in the comments.’
At the end of April, she took to Instagram with a video of her twerking in her lingerie to remind herself to show her body some love.
In a message to her followers, the Juice hit-maker wrote: ‘It’s been a long a*s day focus on a body part u don’t like about yourself and show it some love today.
‘This quarantine has a lot of people suffering from mental health issues because we can’t get out and do our normal coping/self care routines…. self hatred was starting to creep up on me but I gotta remember I’m 110% that b***h love you!’
