How Much Does Lizzo Weigh? Singer Addresses Fat-Shaming Comments

Lizzo is a rockstar, and the whole world loves her. 

While the whole world is supporting body positivity and encouraging men and women of every shape and size to embrace their bodies the way they are, some people wouldn’t just keep calm.

In the most recent controversy, a remark was made by a comedian about Lizzo’s body weight. But it appeared like the singer was in no mood to turn a deaf ear to it. Lizzo took the stage at the VMA ceremony after Aries Spears made degrading comments about her looks.

Ahead of the ceremony, Aries Spears made some unwanted and degrading remarks about Lizzo’s appearance. He stated he could not get past the fact that she looks like this shit emoji.

This dissing came as a result of Aries’s appearance on ‘The Art of Dialogue’ that premiered on YouTube earlier this week. During the talk show, he was asked whether he thought Lizzo was a good songwriter or not.

Aries replied, “She’s got a very pretty face, but she keeps showing her body off like, come on, man. Come on, yo.”

His insulting remarks became a trending topic and took social media by storm. The video clip from the interview racked up more than 3 million views on Twitter alone.

Lizzo had the Last Laugh

When the clip became widespread on social media, Lizzo barely addressed it. However, she did not give the comedian even a second of her attention at the Video Music Award Show, where she was awarded in the Video for Good category for her number, About Damn Time.

She stunned in a beautiful Jean Paul Gaultier gown on the red carpet and performed a show-stopping rendition of her hit, About Damn Time. She also took the stage and performed her new single, 2 Be Loved Am I Ready.

The singer, though, did not specifically comment on the attack managed by the comedian, she managed to take a subtle dig at him in her acceptance speech.

 “I want to say thank you so much for supporting me and loving me. And now, to the bitches that got somethin’ to say about me in the press, you know what? I am not gonna say nothing. They be like, ‘Lizzo, why don’t you clap back? Why don’t you clap back? Because, bitch, I am winning, ho!”

Lizzo’s Fans Got her Back

While Lizzo preferred to stay mum on Spears until the award ceremony took place, her fans emerged in full force to support their favorite rockstar. Many Twitter users  condemned Aries’s comments and wondered why people are once again giving unsolicited opinions about her body.

Some of the Twitter reactions to his comment include the following.

Aries Spears is a fragile child who is throwing a tantrum because Lizzo is living in her authentic truth and his ugly rant is a failed disguise for the hurt he feels for the lack of support in his career as a fat Black entertainer. THIS is what you call projectionism. Really sad.

 

#AriesSpears is one bitter azz dude. Instead of fat-shaming Lizzo, he should take a deeper look within himself, and learn to STFU. His statement was completely unnecessary and uncalled for.
