Lizzo faced backlash on social media on Monday when she took to TikTok to share her juice detox journey on TikTok.
The singer, who has been mocked and fat-shamed a million times over for being a plus-sized entertainer, is now being dragged for promoting “diet culture,” and for turning her back on her famed body positivity ethos.
Lizzo addressed her critics, saying that she was usually “afraid and ashamed” to share her experience with the 10-day detox “because I feel like as a big girl, people expect if you are doing something for health, you’re doing it for a dramatic weight loss, and that is not the case.”
She continued: “In reality, November stressed me the f*ck out. I drank a lot, I ate a lot of spicy things and things that f*cked my stomach up. I wanted to reverse it and get back to where I was. I’m so proud of myself. I’m proud of my results. My sleep has improved, my hydration, my inner peace, my mental stability, my f*cking body, my f*cking skin, the whites of my eyes, I feel and look like a bad bitch– and that’s it.”
“I’m a big girl who did a smoothie detox and I wanted to share it with you guys,” she concluded. “And every big girl should do whatever the f*ck they want with their bodies.”
You can’t please everybody and social media certainly has a lot to say about the matter. But if Lizzo wants to go on a juice cleanse — we fully support her choice.
Fortunately, Lizzo’s fans had her back.
