In addition to being a talented musical artist, Lizzo is known for spreading body positivity for all shapes and sizes. Earlier this year she took to Instagram to show love to her own curves by uploading a bikini picture with the caption “roll model”.
As positive as the Grammy-award winning artist’s body stance is, not everyone agrees with her message. It was previously reported that celebrity fitness coach Jilian Michaels publically shared her own opinions on Lizzo and her curvy figure. During an interview, she said that celebrating people being plus size is considered glorifying obesity. Instead, Jilian Michaels feels we should be celebrating Lizzo’s music and not her body.

Jilian Michaels never officially apologized for her comments but after receiving lots of backlash she did try to better explain what she meant.
Following her obesity comments, Lizzo posted a strongly-worded response to her Instagram page directed at her haters.
