Being a celebrity can have its fair share of problems and Lizzo is more than aware of that fact. Lizzo is a plus-size singer and for that reason, she has been a subject of constant ridicule and body shaming, among other things. Lizzo also hates it when someone brings up her weight. Now it seems T.I. has come to the aid of Lizzo.
Previously a rumor made rounds that claimed that Lizzo killed a person by jumping into the crowd while attempting a stage dive. Lizzo would squash that rumor shortly after. Even Cardi B came after Lizzo’s haters who constantly body shame her.
Rapper T.I. took to Instagram Live and sent his support to Lizzo as he took aim at Lizzo’s fatphobic haters and told Lizzo that her haters only say negative things because they feel negatively about themselves.
“My message to Lizzo. I don’t know Lizzo personally. Listen, sweetheart, you are beautiful, you are talented, you are good enough for all the great things the world has to offer, don’t wait on nobody out there in the public to validate.
Their perception of you has more to do with them than it does with you. All these people who out here who have negative things to say it’s because they feel negatively about themselves.”
Even Offset recently told internet trolls who went after Lizzo to back off. We do not condone body shaming of any kind whatsoever and only hope this hate for Lizzo will die down soon enough.
