What the heck, TikTok!
Lizzo has accused bosses of video-sharing site TikTok of removing clips of her wearing bathing suits.
The 31-year-old singer took to the app on Wednesday to share a new video of herself lip syncing to a song which repeatedly features the words “I know”.
It was accompanied by text on the screen, which read: “TikTok keeps taking down my videos with me in my bathing suits but allows other videos with girls in bathing suits. I wonder why?”
Appearing to imply the videos were being taken down because of her weight, Lizzo added: “TikTok… we need to talk” and concluded her post with a single angry-looking emoji.
TikTok executives are yet to respond to the Truth Hurts hitmaker’s allegations.
It’s not the first time Lizzo has faced criticism of her weight. Fitness expert Jillian Michaels was accused of body-shaming the star last year, after the trainer admitted she was unsure why people were “celebrating her body”, adding: “I love her music. My kid loves her music. But there’s never a moment where I’m like, ‘And I’m so glad that she’s overweight.'”
While Lizzo never responded directly to Jillian’s remarks, she did appear on an Australian talk show shortly afterwards, and said: “I love the fact that kids love me, because I’m making music to make us better, to make us smile, to make you love yourself and I think that children need that more than anything so that they can teach the next generation how to love themselves. Love your body.”
