Lizzo threatens to quit music, move to ‘a F***ING FARM’ over ‘fatphobic’ comments

Plus-size pop star Lizzo has had her fill of comments about her body.

The last straw appears to be a post by podcaster Layah Heilpern who broadcasted her befuddlement at Lizzo’s size despite the amount of physical activity she engages in.

“How is Lizzo still THIS fat when she’s constantly moving this much on stage?! I wonder what she must be eating,” Heilpern tweeted.

The video racked up tens of millions of views with many people echoing the sentiments of Heilpern.

This set Lizzo off.

“JUST logged on the app and this is the type of s–t I see about me on a daily basis,” Lizzo tweeted. “It’s really starting to make me hate the world.”

“Then someone in the comments said I eat ‘lots of fast food.’ I LITERALLY STOPPED EATING FAST FOOD YEARS AGO… I’m tired of explaining myself all the time and I just wanna get on this app w/out seeing my name in some bulls–t,” she continued. “Y’all don’t know how close I be to giving up on everyone and quitting and enjoying my money and my man on a F–KING FARM. The Love definitely do not outweigh the Hate on social media… all because I’m fat???? This is CRAZY.”

Last month the singer put her Twitter account into private mode, meaning the only people who can see her tweets are those who were already following her.

In April, she posted a video to her Instagram account in which she declared herself to be “the beauty standard.” This quickly went viral with many claiming that rather than looking iconic, she looks incredibly unhealthy.

“I just finished showering and doing my little routine, and you know what I realized?” she asked. “I am f–king gorgeous. I am the beauty standard.”
