Lizzo is not trying to change her body; she’s trying to scroll social media without seeing disparaging comments about it.

Though that doesn’t seem like a hard ask, the Grammy winner, 35, often finds herself clapping back at trolls who use their small platforms to shame her for her weight.

Most recently, Lizzo went off on one specific hater who tweeted a video of her performing and wrote, “How is Lizzo THIS fat when she’s constantly moving this much on stage?! I wonder what she must be eating 🤣.”

“I JUST logged on [on this] app and this is the type of s–t I see about me on a daily basis,” the “Truth Hurts” singer replied Wednesday. “It’s really starting to make me hate the world.”

“Then someone in the comments said I eat ‘lots of fast food,’” she went on. “I LITERALLY STOPPED EATING FAST FOOD YEARS AGO.”

The Yitty shapewear line founder said she’s “tired of explaining” herself and “seeing [her] name in some bulls–t.”

In response to someone who claimed that Lizzo doesn’t want to change her appearance because her size is “her brand,” the hitmaker fired back, “I’m not trying to BE fat. I’m not trying to BE smaller. I’m literally just trying to live and be healthy. This is what my body looks like even when I’m eating super clean and working out!”

She admitted she was “starting to get heated,” adding, “I HATE IT HERE.”

“The Love definitely do not outweigh the Hate on social media,” Lizzo lamented, going on to reveal just “how close” she is to “giving up on everyone and quitting and enjoying [her] money and man [Myke Wright] on a F–KING FARM.”

One fan encouraged the famed flutist to not search herself online, but she insisted she “literally” NEVER” does.

“This stuff just comes up on my [timeline] & my [for you pages],” she explained. “I swear I just wanna look at dance videos and science news and this s–t comes in every day.”

She then turned her sights to “the people who haven’t had an original thought or fresh air in years” and reiterated, “BEING FAT ISNT MY ‘BRAND.’ BEING FAT IS WHAT MY BODY LOOKS [LIKE]. THATS IT. THATS ALL.”

According to the “About Damn Time” rapper, her “brand” is actually “FEEL GOOD MUSIC,” “CHAMPIONING ALL PEOPLE” and “BLACK GIRL LIBERATION.”
