- Lizzo took the stage at Toronto’s Scotia bank Arena on Friday to supposedly reply to Kanye’s negative comments about her weight.
- Lizzo defending her weight and preaching body positivity was compared to a “genocide of the Black race” by West.
- In response to this, Lizzo said that she was minding her “fat Black beautiful business”.
In a recent controversy, Lizzo didn’t appreciate Yeezy’s mention of her in his hateful fatphobic comments and expressed her thoughts about the rapper’s remarks.
In his recent Thursday night appearance on Fox New’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, Kanye remarked about singer Lizzo’s weight and referred to the promotion of being overweight as ‘demonic.’
He further added, “Lizzo works with my trainer, a friend of mine, Harley Pasternak. When Lizzo loses 10 pounds and announces it, the bots–that’s a term, its like telemarketer callers–on Instagram attack her for losing weight because the media wants to put out a perception that being overweight is the new goal when it’s unhealthy.”
The rapper also added, “Let’s get aside from the fact whether it’s fashion and Vogue–which it’s not–or if someone thinks it’s attractive to each of his own. It’s clinically unhealthy. And for people to promote that, it’s demonic.”
When the interview Tucker Carlson urged him to explain why the media wants to promote being overweight, the rapper made a bizarre remark. “It is a genocide of the Black Race. They want to kill us in any way they can.”
Lizzo didn’t like her name being dragged around, and the chart-topping singer addressed these hateful comments about her to the audience during her concert in Scotiabank arena on Friday.
Addressing her audience in Toronto, Lizzo said, “I feel like everybody in America got my mother–king name in their mother–king mouth for no mother–king reason.” She then continued,” I am minding my fat, black, beautiful business!” She even jokingly asked her fans, “Can I stay here? Who can I marry for that dual citizenship?”
This is not the first time Lizzo has received hate for her body. She mentioned that she had received uncountable fatphobic hateful comments about her body on Instagram, YouTube, and other public forums.
She addressed comments in one of her Instagram lives last summer. Unfortunately, even after addressing the hate she gets in her life, things didn’t change too much for Lizzo. She continued to be fat-shamed and received hateful comments. In the past, Comedian Aries Spears in an interview, had remarked that “she looks like s-emoji.”
Slamming her haters during her 2022 MTV VMA award acceptance speech, Lizzo said, “You know what? I’m going to say nothing. They are like, ‘Lizzo, why don’t you clap back? Why don’t you clap back?’ Cause bitch, I’m winning, ho! THIS BITCH IS WINNING.”
