Lizzo has never been afraid to hit back at her critics. A regular target for body-shamers, the Grammy Award-winning singer of "Juice" has garnered a reputation for unabashed confidence that has made her an object of great admiration among people both inside and outside the music industry.
This time, Lizzo chose to direct a message at all the men who have used her name to insult other women.
“Dudes be ugly w no b*tches talking bout ‘oK LiZzO’ as an insult in girls comments,” she wrote in a tweet.
“I’m beautiful rich & get immaculate d*ck… ISSA COMPLIMENT. If u can’t make it past the cheeks, just say that.”
Lizzo's message resonated with her fans immediately.
Throughout her career, Lizzo has been subject to body shaming and has inspired other women because of her stance on body positivity and her self-confidence.
Lizzo has been vocal about her belief that the body positivity movement has left fat people behind, pointing out that a movement largely spearheaded by fat women of color has been, according to Glamour, "muddled by a blanket call for body acceptance that tends to favor midsize and skinny women who receive praise for accepting their so-called imperfections."
"Now the body positivity has been co-opted by all bodies, and people are finally celebrating medium and small girls and people who occasionally get rolls; fat people are still getting the short end of this movement," she responded to a fan in a video last year.
She added that fat women are "still getting talked about, memed, shamed—and no one cares anymore because it's like, ‘Body positivity is for everybody.’”
Lizzo has also criticized "fake doctors" who offer armchair diagnoses of people's health conditions in online comments sections. Lizzo has stressed that her body is "no one's business."
