Lizzo Cried Over Body Shaming and Racist Reactions To “Rumors”

Lizzo Breaks Down Over Her Bashers

Lizzo just dropped her new song “Rumors” featuring Cardi B, her first single in quite a while, and it promptly got mean remarks.

Mean comments are not new in the Hollywood industry, but Lizzo couldn’t deal with it any longer as she broke down during an Instagram live on Sunday which no longer appears on her feed.

“Sometimes I feel like the world just don’t love me back. It’s like, it doesn’t matter how much positive energy you put into the world. You’re still going to have people who have something mean to say about you.”

She continued saying that she just feels like she’s seeing negativity directed towards her in the most weirdest way. “People saying sh*t about me that just doesn’t even make sense. It’s fat-phobic and it’s racist and it’s hurtful.”

“I’m not making music for white people; I’m not making music for anybody. I’m a black woman making music. I make black music, period,” she said. “I’m not serving anyone but myself. Everyone is invited to a Lizzo show, to a Lizzo song, to this good energy. Everyone’s invited.”

What happened has reached her collaborator, Cardi B, as she stands up for her on twitter.

“When you stand up for yourself they claim your problematic & sensitive.When you don’t they tear you apart until you crying like this. Whether you skinny,big,plastic, they going to always try to put their insecurities on you.Remember these are nerds looking at the popular table,” she composed.

She additionally added on a different tweet, “Rumors is doing great. Stop trying to say the song is flopping to dismiss a woman emotions on bullying or acting like they need sympathy. The song is top 10 on all platforms. Body shaming and callin her mammy is mean & racist as fuck.”

Lizzo also tweeted about being in a world that don’t love you back and said she’s glad for the individuals who have figured out how to cherish themselves and to those who haven’t as well.

“Loving yourself in a world that don’t love u back takes an incredible amount of self awareness & a bullshit detector that can see through ass backwards societal standards…”

“if u managed to love yourself today I’m proud of u.”

“If u haven’t, I’m still proud of u. This shits hard”

Lizzo dropped the video for her first new single in quite a while on Friday, which includes her and pregnant rap hotshot Cardi B.

Lizzo makes a song about people spending energy trying to bring women down. Twitter makes fun about her talent and mostly her appearance, and then she cries on IG live while addressing how damaging this culture is, and she gets made fun of for crying. Y’all so fucking weird.

Lizzo ain’t crying or upset cause y’all critiquing her song or don’t like her song. She’s hurt and upset because y’all are dehumanizing her, belittling her, being fat phobic, colorist and literally minimizing the work she puts in as an artist.
