Lizzo isn’t bothering herself with what body-shamers think about her figure.
Haters have given the “Truth Hurts” singer a ton of crap over the years for loving the skin she’s in, but she finally put all their nonsense to rest on Tuesday (June 9). In a series of videos shared on TikTok, Lizzo not only put those nosey fat-shamers on blast for obsessing over her looks but did so all while busting out her fitness routine.
"If you’re not a fat shamer... keep scrolling... OK now that all the fat shamers are here 🧚🏾♀️✨” she captioned the video, which shows the superstar’s workout regime involving doing squats, lifting kettlebells, riding a stationary bike, and jumping rope.
"Hey, so I've been working out consistently for the last five years and it may come as a surprise to some of y'all that I'm not working out to have your ideal body type," the "Good as Hell" star narrates the clip. "I'm working out to have my ideal body type, and you know what type that is? None of your f—king business. Because I am beautiful, I am strong, I do my job, and I stay on my job.”
“So next time you want to come to somebody and judge them, whether they drink kale smoothies or eat McDonald's or workout or not workout, how about you look at your own f—king self and worry about your own god-d—n body because health is not just determined on what you look like on the outside, health is also what happens on the inside, she continued, concluding, “And a lot of y'all need to do a f—king cleanse for your insides. Namaste, have a great day."
Lizzo's haters have only fueled the superstar's practice of self-love, especially to encourage her fellow big girls on TikTok. Over the weekend, she gave BBWs everywhere a major confidence boost with a powerful shoutout video — watch it here.
