“Because it isn’t going to be awesome if she gets diabetes” -Jillian Michaels
WOW, Jillian Michaels.

On Wednesday, fitness expert Jillian Michaels made an appearance on Buzzfeed News’ morning show AM2DM and speculated on Lizzo’s health, asking, “Why are we celebrating her body? Why does it matter? That’s what I’m saying. Why aren’t we celebrating her music? Because it isn’t going to be awesome if she gets diabetes.”
More people die from complications of anorexia than any other mental illness, but sure, let’s ask for Lizzo’s bloodwork.

Lizzo spends hours every night singing and playing the flute during intensive dance cardio. Just admit that the only self worth you’ve found for yourself is in your thinness, Jillian, then go to therapy & do the work to love yourself.

We celebrate @Lizzo’s body because she inhabits it with love & teaches us to do the same. She holds concerts that involve hours of singing, dancing & athleticism in a body that society has long profited off hating & stereotyping. Every body deserves compassion & celebration. 💞 https://t.co/aKvSaIw89F

Do let us know when you can twerk and play the flute at the same time, Jillian. Until then, shut your mouth. https://t.co/jvvYlNK5Fu
