It's a turbulent time in America, and two things have defined the day: the House Judiciary Committee impeachment hearing, and Lizzo's butt. One of these things is not like the others. TwitterOn Sunday night, Lizzo and her butt went to see the Lakers-Timberwolves game at the Staples Center in LA.While rooting for the Timberwolves on Lakers turf, Lizzo did something even more controversial: bare her butt in a thong dress.so lizzo showed up to the lakers game last night wearing a thong dress, AND I'M NOT MAD ABOUT IT! pic.twitter.com/9gT3Xb5uoh— hautelemode (@hautelemess) December 9, 2019 An a**-less dress sounds extremely unhygenic and uncomfortable, but Lizzo was happy, and twerking on the JumboTron as the Laker Girls danced to her song "Juice."Lizzo hits a twerk while enjoying the the Laker Girls routine to “Juice” at tonight’s Lakers game... pic.twitter.com/xdDQV8OqPJ— Karen Civil (@KarenCivil) December 9, 2019 Many people were not amused by the near-nudity, arguing that it's inappropriate to have your butt out at an event where there are kids.Regardless of Lizzo’s weight, being in a public place where there’s families and kids with your WHOLE ass out is indecent and y’all know this. You’re just being dense for the sake of being dense— Perk/ANTI MAGA ACCOUNT (@gregperkinss) December 9, 2019 If Lizzo wants her ass out at concerts or clubs, that’s her choice, but not at a Lakers game with Kids there— Wave God 🏁 (@TeejSmoothDude) December 9, 2019 People then accused the anti-thong dress debate of being hypocrites. Dancers at sporting events often have their cleavage, and boobs are the butts of the chest.“Lizzo is vulgar for showing so much skin at a Lakers game! children were there!” Meanwhile thin and conventionally attractive Laker girls literally dress like this at games Seems like you’re just mad that a fat girl doesn’t hate her body, Brad :/ pic.twitter.com/loxrRGzmWL— pride=prison abolition (@golden__ally) December 9, 2019 LIZZO! THINK ABOUT THE KIDS!!!meanwhile at every sporting event pic.twitter.com/VjYJElzsZ6— pow (@goddess2lucifer) December 9, 2019 I’m cracking up at all the “Lizzo was at a basketball game, children were there” y’all love protecting children when it’s convenient. Kids be around cigarette smoke, weed smoke, vulgar language, crackhead uncles, etc. But a fat bitch with her ass showing will harm them. Okay then pic.twitter.com/bHUI7lzOV2— Great Value Lizzo (@NieceJanel) December 9, 2019 To many people, the backlash to the back of Lizzo's dress was an expression of fatphobia, because thin women's butts are often revealed without incident.Lizzo unapologetically existing as a fat black woman has so many of you upset. The fact that she's upsetting the established order and refuses to get inside this preconceived box so many of you have tried to place her in, is hilarious.The fatphobia is jumping out!— Steph (@StephanieYeboah) December 9, 2019 Then came the inevitable backlash to the backlash, as other tweeters argued that the issue wasn't Lizzo's butt, but the time and place at which she chose to bare it. To paraphrase A League of Their Own, "there are no butts in basketball."are u trolling or are u deadass? U trynna make this a weight issue like everybody pissed off that Lizzo a lil healthier than most, nah. Lizzo ass was out at a family oriented event, Meg show her ass at her shows & those are age restricted. Stop making up narratives like a weirdo. https://t.co/w6SlQNfobm— |Trapphone|トラップ電話 (@Akaliltrapphone) December 9, 2019 One thing is for sure: people spent the day thinking and talking about Lizzo, a day on which she just happened to be dropping a new music video.GOOD AS HELL - https://t.co/Gyjk3pgpRj pic.twitter.com/uKkzYy81wt— Feelin Good As Hell (@lizzo) December 9, 2019 The timing is good as hell.
