Lizzo has accused popular video-sharing site TikTok of removing video clips of her wearing skimpy bathing suits that barely cover her ample curves.
The 31-year-old singer took to the app on Wednesday to share a new video of herself lip-syncing along to a song which repeatedly features the words “I know”.
The clip was accompanied by text which read: “TikTok keeps taking down my videos with me in my bathing suits but allows other videos with girls in bathing suits. I wonder why?”
Implying the videos were being snatched down because of her morbid obesity, Lizzo added: “TikTok… we need to talk” and concluded her post with a single angry-looking emoji.
TikTok has yet to respond to the “Truth Hurts” singer’s allegations.
TikTok is a video-sharing app that is wildly popular with children, adolescents and teenagers. Adults have flocked to the app since that’s where children are.
It’s not the first time Lizzo has faced criticism of her weight.
Fitness expert Jillian Michaels was accused of body-shaming the star last year. The trainer admitted she was unsure why people were “celebrating her body”, adding: “I love her music. My kid loves her music. But there’s never a moment where I’m like, ‘And I’m so glad that she’s overweight.'”
Update: TikTok restored Lizzo’s swimsuit videos after intense pressure from the star and her social media followers.
