Lizzo has announced that she’s taking a break from Twitter. In a Sunday tweet, the “Truth Hurts” singer wrote, “Yeah I can’t do this Twitter shit no more.. too many trolls, I’ll be back when I feel like it.”
The singer, who had a monstrous 2019, has dealt with criticism over her weight, especially after her appearance at a recent Laker game where she arrived in a thong dress and twerked for the jumbotron. One of her louder criticizers, Dr. Boyce Watkins recently said the only reason why Lizzo was popular was because of the “obesity epidemic in America.”
“I’m popular because I write good songs and I’m talented and perform high energy hour and a half shows filled with love,” Lizzo responded. “The only person who needs to do better is you. Keep my name out ya mouth & look in the mirror before you come for me. Here’s the attention you ordered.”
Do you think people are too accepting of obesity? Why did you decide to take a social media break?
