Lizzo Responds in the Most Lizzo Way Ever to Candace Owens Sexist, Transphobic and Fatphobic Comments

by Carmella D'Acquisto

Republican cuck and conservative commentator, Candace Owens, is back on our timelines spewing more hateful nonsense; and this time she came for the queen herself: Lizzo. 

Last week, twitter user @FlorioGina tweeted a photo of a nude Lizzo holding a mug of coffee (that has a nude butt on it) with the caption “Obesity is on the rise and yet women are told by celebrities and the media that being obese is normal and ‘healthy.’ You never see this with men. Only women are insecure enough to fall for it.” 

Candace Owens saw this tweet as an opportunity to dig her heels in and retweeted the post with additional commentary: “Only women could be emotionally manipulated into supporting their own eradication via support for ‘trans men.’ Only women could be fooled into supporting a death cult of ‘fat acceptance.’ Today’s cultural battles prove that women are more irrational and emotional than men.”  

Owens is so spiteful and backward that she was able to fit transphobia, fatphobia and sexism in only 42 words. Candace doubled down on her hate, writing “If you peep comments on any of Lizzo’s ‘fat acceptance’ photos, you will undoubtedly find a score of batshit insane women telling her she looks beautiful. Men do not lie to other men in this way. They do not pretend that clinic obesity is beauty.” She then retweeted this meme: 


But even among the slew of hateful and inaccurate retweets, Lizzo’s fans (and just decent people) defended her in the comments, and made great points about how damaging Owen’s point of view is. 


Our calm and collected queen Lizzo responded with an instagram video that she took after a shower and a self-care routine and said “you know what I realized? I am fucking gorgeous. I am the beauty standard. Catch up bitch!” She then captioned the post “I’m sorry that my perfect face & rockin body offends you.. I can’t help that I’m God’s favorite ?”



This isn’t the first (or will it be the last) time Lizzo had to defend herself in the media. Good thing she’s too busy being a four-time Grammy Award winner, Guinness World Record holder, and successful entrepreneur to let bigoted haters get to her.
