Lizzo addressed social media trolls who have been harassing her for days about the sheer purple dress she wore to Cardi B’s dancehall-themed birthday party. During an Instagram Live session last night (Oct. 14), the “Truth Hurts” star shut down body-shaming comments and even went as far as to flash her bare behind to her thousands of viewers.
“Kiss my fat Black ass, bitch,” Lizzo said on Live, pulling down her pants and twerking on camera.
Lizzo has shut down body-shaming trolls in the past, but some fans are saying her recent mooning stunt went too far.
“Lizzo now come on why you pull your pants down,” one person tweeted. Others asked why Instagram allowed the brief nudity during Lizzo’s Live, while Boosie Badazz has been banned from the app for similar offenses.
However, plenty of fans supported the Cuz I Love You crafter.
“I Stan Lizzo because if she was thinner y’all would praise her and support her,” one person commented on Instagram. “… We just can’t love ourselves enough to see that it’s not cool to online bully these celebrities. Y’all have no idea what they mentally go through. You are one comment of millions of bullies on a daily.”
“For the most part, it doesn’t hurt my feelings. I don’t care,” she continued. “I just think when I’m working this hard, my tolerance gets lower, my patience is lower, I’m more sensitive, and it gets to me.”
Lizzo received support from Cardi, Offset, T.I. and others who encouraged her to ignore the hateful comments. Watch Lizzo moon her haters during her Instagram Live below.
