Baby Blue Of Pretty Ricky Defends Lizzo Against Backlash By Posting Shirtless Photo + Calls Out IG For Removing The Post: IG Just Fat Shamed Me!
Lizzo has recently received some support from Baby Blue through social media!
This past Monday (Oct. 11th), Cardi B (real name Belcalis Almánzar) celebrated her 29th birthday with a Dancehall-themed party. One of the most memorable looks of the night was Lizzo‘s (real name Melissa Jefferson), as she wore a sheer dress adorned with crystals. She commemorated the occasion with a number of Instagram posts, which you can see down below:

Since wearing the outfit, Lizzo has received a fair amount of backlash on the internet. However, another artist recently came to her defense: Pretty Ricky‘s Baby Blue! Earlier today (Friday, Oct. 15th), Baby Blue posted a now-deleted image on Instagram to defend Lizzo. Baby Blue uploaded a shirtless photo and stuck up for Lizzo by writing:
“Y’all leave @lizzobeeating alone and pick on me! These haters be so miserable in their own skin but wanna tear down others who are ‘COMFORTABLE’ in theirs. Beauty comes in all shapes, sizes and skin tones. Let’s normalize appreciating, loving and encouraging one other.”
Shortly thereafter, the post was removed from Baby Blue‘s account. On his Instagram Story, he clarified that the platform had taken down his post.
Then, Baby Blue made another upload where he showed that Instagram removed his image for violating the platform’s community guidelines regarding nudity. He also accused the site of body-shaming him:
“Can’t be real?!!!! @instagram there was nothing wrong with my photo or post! IG just fat shamed me! I guess I wasn’t fine enuff for my post to stay up! I see ripped guys with they shirt off everyday! I see what’s going on here! wow @instagram You deleted a post of me protecting a woman against #bodyshaming. [insert side-eye emoji] shame on you!”
