AceShowbiz - Lizzo is believed to have responded to Jillian Michaels' controversial comments about her weight in her own fashion. The rapper, who is known for her unfiltered posts on social media, recently shared an NSFW message on her Instagram Stories.
The 31-year-old star reportedly said in a video, "If my name is your mouth...so is my p***y, b***h...enjoy the flavor!" A fan noticed that Lizzo also shared the brief clip on her main Instagram page with the caption, "PSA," before deleting it.
It's not clear whom the message was directed at, but many suspected that it was her strong response to Jillian's recent remarks about her.
In another Instagram post shared on Wednesday, January 8, Lizzo appeared to brush off criticisms against herself. "At the 25 second mark I want you to take 5 deep breaths… in through the nose… out through the mouth..," she wrote along with a video showcasing a hotel she was staying at. "today’s mantra is: This is my life. I have done nothing wrong. I forgive myself for thinking I was wrong in the first place. I deserve to be happy."
Jillian previously came under fire after expressing her disagreement about people celebrating the trend of body-positivity. "Why are we celebrating her body?" she said of the "Juice" raptress. "Why does it matter? Why aren't we celebrating her music? 'Cause it isn't going to be awesome if she gets diabetes." She went on sharing her thoughts on the rap star, "I'm just being honest. I love her music, my kid loves her music, but there's never a moment when I'm like, 'I'm so glad she's overweight.' Why do I even care? Why is it my job to care about her weight?"
After her comments sparked backlash, she took to Instagram to double down on her initial statements. "As I've stated repeatedly, we are all beautiful, worthy and equally deserving. I also feel strongly that we love ourselves enough to acknowledge there are serious health consequences that come with obesity-heart disease, diabetes, cancer to name only a few," so she wrote. "I would never wish these for ANYONE and I would hope we prioritize our health because we LOVE ourselves and our bodies."
On "The View" on Thursday, January 9, Whoopi Goldberg jumped to Lizzo's defense, calling the "Truth Hurts" hitmaker "fabulous." "She is who she is ... and if you don't get it, then you don't get it," the actress said. "I'm thrilled that she's a big-figured woman. I'm thrilled that she is and that she has no compunction about wearing whatever she wants to wear and she’s comfortable." The comedian added, "So I do celebrate her."
Co-host Joy Behar agreed with Whoopi, saying, "Jillian Michaels is entitled to her opinion, but not everyone can be a skinny (expletive)."
