Lizzo has threatened to give up her music career because of negative comments about her weight on social media.
The “Good as Hell” singer said she was “tired” of the “bulls–t” after she spotted a cruel post Wednesday (May 31) on Twitter.
Her comment came in response to a tweet by author and podcaster Layah Heilpern, who shared a video of Lizzo wearing a sparkling green grown and removing the detachable skirt while singing and dancing on stage.
Heilpern captioned the post: “How is Lizzo still THIS fat when she’s constantly moving this much on stage?! I wonder what she must be eating.”

The tweet was viewed millions of times, prompting Lizzo to become a trending topic on the platform.
The Grammy-winning artist reposted Heilpern’s tweet and included a caption saying she was sick of the online abuse.
“JUST logged on the app and this is the type of s–t I see about me on a daily basis,” Lizzo wrote. “It’s really starting to make me hate the world.”
Lizzo responds to the onslaught of fatphobic comments she faces daily:

She added, “Then someone in the comments said I eat ‘lots of fast food.’ I LITERALLY STOPPED EATING FAST FOOD YEARS AGO… I’m tired of explaining myself all the time and I just wanna get on this app w/out seeing my name in some bulls–t.”
The singer said she’s considering completely leaving the spotlight.
“Y’all don’t know how close I be to giving up on everyone and quitting and enjoying my money and my man on a F–KING FARM,” she wrote. “The Love definitely do not outweigh the Hate on social media… all because I’m fat???? This is CRAZY.”
She followed up with “I hate it here.”
The singer set her Twitter account to private sometime last month, according to published reports in April. But Pop Crave made a screen grab and reposted her May 31 tweets.
Lizzo, 35, is known for advocating body positivity and launched an inclusive shapewear line in 2022.
