Lizzo Claps Back at Troll Who Says She's Only Popular Because of 'Obesity Epidemic': 'I'm Talented'

Lizzo doesn’t have time to people trying to diminish her hard work.

She took to Twitter to clap back at someone who said she’s only popular because “there is an obesity epidemic in America.”

The insult came on Monday when a Twitter user wrote, “#Lizzo popular is because there is an obesity epidemic in America.”

“Rather than encouraging people to do better, we are simply lying to them and telling them that they are just fine the way they are,” the user continued. “Unfortunately, many of these people are dying from diabetes and heart disease.”

Lizzo, 31, was quick to clap back, explaining that her fame has nothing to do with her appearance.

“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 tweeted.

“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,” she added.

The Twitter exchange comes just a few days after Lizzo reflected on how far she’s come in her career.

On Saturday, the “Truth Hurts” singer hit another career milestone with her Saturday Night Live debut — the special moment leaving her to reflect on her journey to success.

In a motivational post on Sunday, Lizzo shared a throwback photo of herself dressed as Lady Liberty while working as a sign spinner before fame. She juxtaposed the pre-fame photo alongside the TV art from her recent SNL appearance.

“On the left was when I worked for liberty taxes, as a sign spinner…,” she wrote. “on the right is my @nbcsnl debut.”

Lizzo then reminded her fans that if they follow their dreams, anything is possible. “Don’t stop.. we need you,” she added. “Your time is coming.”

It’s unfortunate she even gave that negative criticism the time of day. She’s winning right now!
