Lizzo's camp reported the posts to Twitter, saying they "fat-shamed" the pop superstar on the social media platform.

Some of the posts contained memes featuring a photo that showed Lizzo posing in the nude. The photos were superimposed on images of B2 bombers and fighter jets. One illustration depicted Lizzo as a whale.

There was also a video of the aftermath of a nuclear bomb explosion. The video was captioned: "When Trump drops Lizzo's fat ass in Iran."

Many speculated that she was forced off social media by bullies who constantly reminded her of her spat with Dr. Boyce Watkins.

The 31-year-old Detroit native was the target of Watkins, who said she is popular because there is an obesity epidemic in America.

But my source said the real reason Lizzo left Twitter was the plethora of humiliating posts about Iran.

The source described Lizzo as "depressed" and "humiliated" over the online harassment. He said Twitter staff told her the messages didn't violate Twitter's policies on abusive content.

Lizzo quit Twitter.com after complaining about the negativity of "trolls" on the social media platform. Now she explains why.

"Yeah I can't do this Twitter s**t no more.. too many troll," she tweeted on Sunday. "I'll be back when I feel like it."

Speculation ran rampant as her fans debated the real reason behind her decision to leave social media.

Many speculated that she was forced off social media by bullies who constantly reminded her what Dr. Boyce Watkins said.

The 31-year-old Detroit native was the target of Watkins, who said she is popular because there is an obesity epidemic in America.

He criticized the "Truth Hurts" singer for glamorizing morbid obesity, which is among the top 5 causes of death for women over 300 pounds.

The singer, who is born under the Scorpio star sign, explained her decision to leave social media during a benefit concert at the Sydney Opera House in Australia.

"I just want you to know that I, you know, I just took a DNA test and it turns out I quit Twitter. I quit Twitter. I'm off it. All social media is not created equal," she said.

"I would love to be on Twitter 'cause I could connect with you people who positively support me not to mention spreading my own positive messages," she said as the crowd cheered. She added: "But now I've gotten to a point where I'm not just dealing with Internet bullies, I'm dealing with seeing a lot of negativity on the Internet dealing with everyone."

She said she has thick skin, but she worries about her fans who can’t handled the bullying.

"...when I see how, not just insensitive, but hateful and hurtful we are towards each other - when I just log on every day and see something devastating and something tragic every single day. Even from my well of positivity. I feel it and it doesn't feel good."

Lizzo is performing across Australia to raise money to combat the bushfires that have scorched at least 11 million acres since arsonists set the fires in September. 24 suspects have been arrested.

Lizzo quit Twitter after her online beef with Dr. Boyce Watkins, who claimed her popularity was due to the "obesity epidemic in America."

The "Good As Hell" singer announced she was quitting Twitter just one week into the New Year.

"Yeah I can't do this Twitter s--t no more," she tweeted before adding, "too many trolls. "I'll be back when I feel like it."

Lizzo's followers assumed she quit due to her run-in with Watkins, an author and financial expert.

On Dec. 20, Watkins wrote:

"#Lizzo popular is because there is an obesity epidemic in America. Rather than encouraging people to do better, we are simply lying to them and telling them that they are just fine the way they are. Unfortunately, Many of these people are dying from diabetes and heart disease."

The "Juice" singer clapped back, saying her immense "talent" was behind her widespread popularity.

"I'm popular because I write good songs and I'm talented and perform high energy hour and a half shows filled with love," Lizzo fired back. "The only person who needs to do better is you. Keep my name out ya mouth & look in the mirror before you come for me."

She added: "Here's the attention you ordered."

According to industry insiders, Lizzo tips the scale at 280-300 pounds and she has obesity-related health problems that caused her to cancel recent concert dates.

Kamala Harris is calling on Twitter bosses to suspend President Donald Trump's Twitter account, saying his sometimes brutal Twitter posts could put people in danger.

Trump is on the hot seat for asking the Ukraine president to investigate corruption by presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi officially declared an impeachment inquiry, which sent social media into a frenzy last week.

But the California senator, who is a long shot for the Democratic nomination, wants Trump silenced for good on the social media platform.

"The president's tweets and his behaviors about this are just further evidence of the fact that he uses his power in a way that is designed to beat people down instead of lift people up,' Harris told Anderson Cooper on CNN Monday night.

Harris pointed to one of Trump's tweets in which he demanded to meet with the CIA whistleblower who leaked the contents of his phone call with the Ukrainian president.

"Frankly, when you look at what he's been tweeting today directed at the whistle-blower, directed at so many people, you know, I, frankly, think that based on this and all we've seen him do before, including attacking members of Congress, that he, frankly, should be - his Twitter account should be suspended,' she added.

She followed up her interview by tweeting, "Look let's be honest, @realDonaldTrump's Twitter account should be suspended."

Did you know that every "private" message you send on any social media platform can be read internally by workers? Even though we have zero expectations of privacy online, some social media users sincerely believe their private messages are private.

According to a hidden camera report by Projectveritas.com, Twitter pays at least 400 workers to scour your DMs for content and other data (such as your IP, location, email addresses, etc) that they can use to tailor ad serving to you.

"The whole culture at Twitter is about abusing and laughing at users," says Project Veritas' founder James O'Keefe.
