Singer Lizzo hinted at Ye’s negative comments about her weight during a concert in Toronto on Friday – and joked that she wanted to immigrate to Canada.
Ye – also known as Kanye West – sat down with Tucker Carlson last week to discuss his marriage to Kim Kardashian and his experience as a Trump supporter in Hollywood. During the interview, he referenced Lizzo while criticizing mainstream attitudes towards obesity.
“Lizzo works with my trainer, a friend of mine… When Lizzo loses 10 pounds and announces it, bots – that’s a term for telemarketers – attack on Instagram that she’s lost weight,” explained Ye.
Ye claimed that Lizzo is being used by the media to promote overweight body types, calling it part of “a genocide of the black race.”
“The media wants to present a perception that obesity is the new goal when it’s actually unhealthy,” the “Jesus Walks” rapper argued. “It’s actually clinically unhealthy, and for people to promote it, it’s demonic.”
Lizzo did not explicitly refer to Ye’s comments, but said she was minding her own “fat, black beautiful business” during a concert at Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena.
“I feel like everybody in America got my mom’s name in their mom’s mouth for no mom’s reason,” the singer said to roaring applause.
That “About Damn Time” singer then jokingly asked the audience if anyone would sponsor her green card so she could move to Canada.
“Can I stay here? Who can I marry for dual citizenship?” she asked as she raised her hands to the crowd.
