Lizzo close to 'giving up and quitting' music over body-shaming

Lizzo is fed up with her body-shaming trolls.

The Grammy winner went off on Twitter on Wednesday after a user shared a video of the singer onstage and insulted her size. Lizzo said she is considering "quitting" the music industry due to the constant bashing she receives over her weight.

"I just logged on [the app] and this is the type of s--- I see about me on a daily basis. It's really starting to make me hate the world," Lizzo wrote on her now-protected account.

"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 bulls---."

Sharing another tweet that claims that being big is her "branding," Lizzo continued, "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! Y'all speak on s--- y'all know NOTHING ABOUT and I'm starting to get heated."

She said that she "hate[s] it here" and that it is "crazy" that the "love definitely do[es] not outweigh the hate on social media."

"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," she wrote. "I literally NEVER search my name. This stuff just comes up on my TL & my FYP. It's wild. I swear I just wanna look at dance videos and science news and this s--- comes in every day."

Lizzo reiterated that her brand is "championing all people," not "being fat."

"Being fat isn't my 'brand.' Being fat is what my body looks [like]. That’s it. That's all. My 'brand' is feel-good music. My 'brand' is championing all people," she wrote.

"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 s--- on?! Man, f--- y'all."

Lizzo is known for being vocal about self-love and acceptance. Recently, she shared on TikTok about how she exercises not for losing weight, but for her mental health's sake.

“I think a lot of people see a fat person that way and immediately just assume everything they are doing is trying to be thin,” she says. “I’m not trying to be thin. I don’t ever want to be thin.”

"Everything I eat, everything I do, every time I move my body, it’s all for this. If this ain’t happy, none of this is happy,” she said while pointing to her head.
