Lizzo slams online troll
The actress is not here for anyone trying to put her down because of her physique. She continues to own her identity no matter what.
Recently a troll sent Lizzo a DM on Instagram accusing the singer of using her body to get attention. She didn’t hesitate to call out the troll and shared a screenshot of the DM on her page. The singer captioned the post: "Somebody come get this girl, I think she got lost in my DMs.”
From the message, the troll shared a video of what appears to be the singer twerking with several other women and wrote:
Lol I don't mind this. It's when she talks all ghetto I don't like. And what's with her talking about woman power but doing the exact opposite by objectifying them by only using her body to get attention. Isn't that defeating the purpose lol.
Fortunately, Lizzo’s post garnered dozens of sympathetic replies in the comments section. Fans came to her defense, and it looks like the cruel troll had no more words.
This is what fans had to say
I’m not sure what she’s looking at but I’m looking at power. You’re beautiful and the world is yours❤️
Woman power is doing exactly what you want with your body without putting other women down because they choose to do differently with theirs ✌️
We all know she at home trying to twerk in the mirror tho
So plus size woman not showing their bodies to inspire other girls to be comfortable in their own skin isn't woman empowerment?
Lizzo’s clap back is a fair warning to all trolls. Better think twice before you cross her or it might get prickly fast.
