Lizzo will not stand for more unsolicited fatphobia from Kanye West – or anyone else for that matter!
On Friday, the 34-year-old singer performed in Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena when during her concert she took a moment to address the fact that people keep bringing up her name in interviews. She then said:
“I feel like everyone in America got my mother-king name in their mother-king mouth for no mother-king reason. I mind my fat black beautiful business.”
In other words, please keep Lizzo’s name out of your mouth! She then asked the audience if she could “stay” in Toronto. As the crowd cheered in the background, About Damn Time artist added:
“Who can I marry for dual citizenship?”
We can only imagine how exhausted and frustrated Lizzo must be with all the hate and body-shaming aimed at her – especially after the terrible incident with the comedian Aries Spears who said, “she looks like that s**t emoji.” It’s just messy and unfair for her to have to deal with this all the time. You can ch-ch-check out her clap back at Kanye HERE.
While she doesn’t mention Kanye specifically, this definitely seems to be a response to Ye’s recent comments about her looks! As we previously reported, the 45-year-old rapper sat down for an interview with Tucker Carlson tonight Thursday, where he called Lizzo’s body positivity “demonic” and compared it to “a genocide of the black race.” He stated to Tucker Carlson:
“They had this idea that Ye bullied… a ‘black woman with body measurements’ Now let’s talk about [Karefa-Johnson] and my good friend Lizzo. Lizzo works with my trainer, a friend of mine, Harley Pasternak. When Lizzo loses 10 pounds and announces it, the bots on Instagram attack her for losing weight because the media wants to promote the perception that overweight is the new goal when it’s actually unhealthy.”
“Let’s ignore whether it’s fashionable and fashionable, which it isn’t, or whether someone thinks it’s attractive, to each their own. It is actually clinically unhealthy. For people to promote that, it’s demonic… It’s a genocide of the black race. They will kill us in any way they can.”
Wow. Seriously, you?!
