Lizzo has been at the forefront of the body positivity movement in America. Now plus sized women everywhere are embracing their shapes and becoming less self conscious about what they wear in public.
And while most agree that’s a good thing, Media Take Out has learned that someone are threatened by this movement.
In a new Youtube video, comedian Aries Spears roasted Lizzo on the Art of Dialogue. During the interview, Spears talked about LIzzo having a pretty face but the body of the “poo” emoji on iPhones.
The comedian goes OFF on Lizzo – in a manner that many online find troubling. In addition to comparing Lizzo to a pile of excellent, he also said her body looks like a plate of mashed potatoes and welcomed whatever internet ire is sure to come his way as a result of his comments.
