Lizzo's FAT victimhood

Lizzo's FAT victimhood

According to the CDC, the U.S. obesity rate was 41.9% from 2017 to 2020 and growing. However, the rise in obesity doesn’t seem to correlate with a rise in worry for fat activists.

One of those activists is Lizzo, who recently took to Twitter to fight back against users questioning the singer's larger size.

Twitter user Layah Heilpern recently posted a video of Lizzo dancing in a barely-there outfit, writing, “How is Lizzo still THIS fat when she’s constantly moving this much on stage?! I wonder what she must be eating.”

Lizzo responded that those kinds of tweets are really starting to make her “hate the world.”

The singer also claimed that she had stopped eating fast food years ago, despite numerous recent selfie videos of her eating large portions of what appears to be fast food.

Lauren Chen of "Pseudo-Intellectual" says Lizzo “definitely has not given up fast food” if “she’s operating under the same definition of fast food as everyone else.”

While Chen admits some of the comments on Lizzo’s appearance are slightly mean-spirited, she also believes that “none of the controversy she’s in would exist without her own actions.”

The actions she’s referring to include Lizzo’s very loud stance on fat positivity, which again ignores all health problems associated with obesity.

The singer even has a show called "Lizzo's Watch Out for the Big Grrrls," where the singer scouts for oversized or plus-sized dancers.

Chen believes people like Lizzo are to blame for the rise in obesity.

“I know this may surprise some people. Our actions do contribute to our weight and our overall health. It matters what you eat. It matters how much you exercise, and people like Lizzo out here spreading frankly lies about how she eats clean without fast food but is just naturally ... 350 pounds. It’s actually doing damage to public health,” Chen says.

“Honestly, if we care about someone we should want them to be healthy and we shouldn’t lie to them about what the health outcomes they are inflicting upon themselves,” she continues.

According to the CDC, those obesity-related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer.

“So,” Chen continues, “I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that yeah, Lizzo is literally putting people’s lives, including her own, at risk with her fat acceptance nonsense.”
