A man (who else?) accused Lizzo of being popular just because of her weight, and she completely called him out.The concern troll attributed Lizzo's popularity to the obesity epidemic in America.#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.Unfortunately, Many of these people are dying from diabetes and heart disease pic.twitter.com/75TY8jJRIX— Dr Boyce Watkins (@drboycewatkins1) December 20, 2019 This is a wild suggestion to make, in part because there are only like three overweight celebs at any given moment. People are in awe of Lizzo because of her talent. Her refusal to be shamed into silence by shamers like Watkins is a major bonus. But without the immense talent and hard work, she probably wouldn't be where she is.Watkins didn't stop there. He added a few more nasty tweets implying she's a "buffoon" and bringing up the Lakers game thong that men just can't seem to get over.Key points on #Lizzo: 1) The issue is bigger than her, she's a product of a white supremacist system that rewards #blackpeople for being buffoons. 2) Being overweight is fine, there are plenty of overweight performers who don't show up to Lakers games with their booty out.— Dr Boyce Watkins (@drboycewatkins1) December 27, 2019 Then he threw in something about R. Kelly and female role models that I just cannot understand no matter how hard I try.3) She is very talented, but it's the gimmick that gets attention, not the talent, she was ignored for years. 4) In a world where R Kelly types are seeing our 12-yr olds as sex objects, we should realize the dangers of having them grow up idologizing women like Lizzo and Cardi b— Dr Boyce Watkins (@drboycewatkins1) December 27, 2019 Lizzo apparently saw the tweets and was not amused.She responded with a call-out and an appeal for him to do better:I’m popular because I write good songs and I’m talented and perform high energy hour and a half shows filled with love. 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 😏 https://t.co/zXnOv4f9Dr— Feelin Good As Hell (@lizzo) December 23, 2019 People are applauding her for putting the guy in his place.Honestly tired of hearing men’s opinions on women and girls. Never ending onslaught of opinions on our bodies, our appearances, our actions, and on the violence against us. I don’t care what letters are in front of your name, learn when to mind your business or how to listen. pic.twitter.com/8FgLa7EpL8— KpopTookOverMyLife (@mheiligm) December 23, 2019 And back on Watkins' page, people are roundly roasting him.Aren’t you fat though? Aren’t you someone who has been teaching for years & not one college will offer your lame, sexist & dumb ass tenure? Aren’t you someone whose “articles,” if you want to call them that, are only be featured on sites that end in .net. Nigga, worry about you.— Kellee Nicole Terrell (@kelleent) December 23, 2019 They're pointing out that even if Watkins really did genuinely care about Lizzo's health, shaming her is not the answer.As someone who has taken off a considerable amount of weight to save off diabetes, I have to tell you, a person absolutely can not hate themselves to better health. The type of self loathing your attitude instills actually makes it harder to make any change.— That One Ginger (@anniemare) December 23, 2019 Most of all, it's obvious to anyone that Lizzo's popularity is due to her hard work and talent.Lizzo is popular because she is a brilliant multi talented Queen. Lizzo is also a dancer so dehumanizing her for her weight is beyond dumb. She is more healthy and in shape than you are Boyce.— Jason (Your Gay BFF) (@EscaflowneClown) December 23, 2019 Hopefully in the next decade, men will get over Lizzo's body shape.
