Lizzo calls out fat shamers in the best workout TikTok video, as she states she is not working out to have the ideal body type others want to see from her.
The TikTok video shows a montage of Lizzo exercising in different forms, riding an exercise bike, jumping rope, lifting weights, doing jumping jacks, along with trying out lingerie and posing in her swimsuit.
The video also includes Lizzo sharing a powerful message as she calls out fat shamers in a voiceover where she explains that she is not interested in the negative things they have to say about her weight.
“I’ve been working out consistently for the past five years, and it may come as a surprise to some of y’all that I’m not working out to have your ideal body type,” Lizzo said in the video.
“I’m working out to have my ideal body type. And you know what type that is? None of your f—ing business because I am beautiful, I am strong, I do my job, and I stay on my job,” Lizzo continued
“So next time you want to come to somebody and judge them, whether they drink kale smoothies or eat McDonald’s, or workout, or not workout, how about you look at your own f—ing self and worry about your own body,” the singer said.
Lizzo concluded her TikTok workout video by telling viewers, “Health is not just determined by what you look like on the outside. Health is also what happens on the inside and a lot of y’all need to do a f—ing cleanse for your insides. Namaste, have a great day.”
