Aries Spears is getting roasted for commenting on Lizzo’s weight.
The comedian angered the singer-songwriter’s fans after mocking her body during an interview with “The Art of Dialogue” podcast.
Spears was asked about Lizzo’s music and her songwriting, but instead commented on her figure. It didn’t take long for the interview to unravel.
“I can’t get past the fact she looks like the sh-t emoji. She’s got a very pretty face, but she keeps showing her body off, like c’mon man,” Spears said.
The MADtv alum admitted his own body is not exactly ripped, but said he still gets dates.
“I ain’t the most in shape n—a in the world, but when you funny and you got swagger and confidence and you decent looking, I think I’m at least handsome — you get p—y. But a woman that’s built like a plate of mashed potatoes is in trouble,” he continued.
Unfortunately, his tirade wasn’t over.
“You know what kills me about women? The hypocrisy and the contradiction,” he added. “’Yes, queen.’ ‘Slay, queen.’ Yeah girl, you’re confident. F–k diabetes. F–k heart problems. F–k heart disease, cholesterol. Y’all claim womanhood and about sisterhood… but if you really loved your sister, you’d go ‘Black girl, we love you and your confidence, but this ain’t it.’”
A clip from the interview was posted on “The Art of Dialogue” Twitter feed Friday. It generated thousands of replies — with Lizzo’s fans telling Spears it’s “About Damn Time” he shut up.

“What’s really sad to me is how the interviewer specifically brought Lizzo up to praise her music and songwriting skills, but Aries jumped over all of that to talk about how fat she is,” one person replied.
“Comedy?? The guy is talking about someone else’s weight when he is breathing heavy just sitting?” another Twitter user responded.
“She can sing and dance in heels for 2 hours… He can barely make it through this video. So maybe apply those notes to the mirror because no one sees that swagger he speaks of. Just plain old ugly… inside and out,” someone else said.
“So, what I’m hearing is he is in jeopardy of having diabetes and heart issues due to HIS obesity and is upset that Lizzo can literally run circles around him while playing the flute,” another person added.
