The Internet Slams Jillian Michaels For Obesity Comments Made Towards Lizzo

Jillian Michaels doesn’t think we should praise Lizzo’s body image.

The internet is coming for celebrity fitness trainer, Jillian Michaels after comments she made about our favorite girl, Lizzo.

On Buzzfeed News' "AM2DM,” Michaels made a few comments about how people are praising Lizzo’s body not knowing the health factors involved with her weight basically calling her obese. She said she doesn’t know why fans are “celebrating her body” and not her music.

“It isn’t going to be awesome if she gets diabetes,” she stated.

She also said that she and her kid loves her music but there will never be a moment when she says, “And I’m so glad that she’s overweight.”

People went in on Michaels saying she’s fat shaming Lizzo and calling her a bully. The trainer took to Instagram to I guess you can say defend her comments. She talks about how we need to take obesity seriously and how we should love and take care of our bodies. 

Personally, I think Michaels is missing the whole point with Lizzo embracing her body. 

Lizzo is proud of who she is and wants other girls who don’t fit what society deems are “healthy.” Everyone knows that at Lizzo doesn’t have a problem with showing off her body and dancing in front of big crowds with nothing but a thong on. 

I get it, we need to all eat healthy and exercise, but don’t put the next person down while trying to prove your point. We don’t know what 

Lizzo is going through personally so I don’t think it’s anyones business to cast judgment. 

What do y’all think about this?

i'm right with her! i'm tired of seeing this chick parading around in shit she KNOWS she shouldn't be wearing for her size. its cool to be comfortable in your own skin but when your acting proud to be overweight that's not a message these young women need to get. she does all this because shes famous shes setting some young women up for some harsh realities and body shaming if they're trying to follow in her footsteps.


“It isn’t going to be awesome if she gets diabetes"

Yoooo!!! 😆😆😆😆😆


she's brought up the physical health implications of being that overweight - Lizzo might emotionally be fine but there are realities to being that overweight and trying to keep up physically with the demands of her schedule. There are some people who are happy drinking a bottle of vodka a day it doesn't mean they're healthy and don't need to make better choices.


As one who is empowered by Lizzo, I must say Miss Micheals is missing the point in its whole entirety; simply because society shames bigger, thicker, fatter people doesn't mean said people should feel uncomfortable within themselves. Lizzo is simply being herself 🤷🏾 not to knock this lady, whose built her life to educate people on health, that's very admirable. My thing is her tone and somewhat standoffish personality - again I don't really know much of Miss Juliann.


its good Lizzo is happy with herself, that's without question as everyone should, but Michaels is telling the truth, she isnt even slightly overweight and with that your chance of having a lot of health issues is a lot higher.
