Lizzo has no time for body shamers.
The singer/rapper took to TikTok after noticing people would comment her name under videos of “big” girls and women in a way that was intended to insult them.
“To the people who be putting my name in the comments, thank you,” she said in her video. “If every time you see a big girl on this app loving 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****, that is a compliment.”
Lizzo let her trolls know that turning her name into an insult wasn’t going to hurt her.
“Letting you b****** know that next time you try to make fun of a woman for her body, or her size, that b****, we’re out here and we don’t give a f***,” she continued. “And we’re confident and we’re bad b****** and we’re cover stars.”
She also let the people targeted by those trolls know that they have nothing to be ashamed of.
“To all the big girls, I see you,” she said. “Put my name in the comments.”

She’s even called the app out in the past for removing posts in which she was wearing bathing suits and keeping up those of Charli D’Amelio, who shared six videos in a row of herself in swimwear.
“I wonder why,” she wrote, implying that there’s a double standard in the way the app treated the two influencers. “TikTok… we need to talk.”
The platform still has a long way to go to master the necessary art of body positivity, but Lizzo is steering us all in the right direction.
