Facebook has deleted thousands of comments and banned trolls who taunted Lizzo‘s wight and made racist comments about her.
The “Truth Hurts” singer broke down and wept in a YouTube video after trolls hurled “fatphobic and racist” remarks about her new single “Rumors” featuring Cardi B.
YouTube users rated the single a flop and called Lizzo “mammy” because she portrayed a goddess in the music video.

Wearing a stocking cap on her head and wiping tears from her eyes, Lizzo said:
“On the days that I should be the happiest, I just feel so down… I work so hard. I’ve been working triple time… doing 12 hours a day of promos and interviews… going to the studio with a f**king root canal…
“I’m putting so much love and energy into the world, and sometimes I feel like the world don’t love me back.”
The 33-year-old songbird returned to the Internet on Tuesday, after Facebook took action against her tormenters.
She thanked supporters for their positive energy and said it was “important” for her to express her anxiety and depression that day.
“We really need to check ourselves and how we treat people,” she said.
“I’m not crying for me. Yeah, I’m successful, I’m happy, I strive for joy every single day. I’m balanced, I’m blessed. But I just be feeling for the world. This sh-t ain’t right. We shouldn’t talk to people like that. We shouldn’t normalize treating people this way.”
Following her mental breakdown, social media bosses removed thousands of nasty comments on Lizzo’s Facebook and Instagram pages.
According to TMZ, Facebook officials banned the accounts of trolls from both social media sites.
They will continue to monitor Lizzo’s timelines and remove toxic comments, so the fragile singer doesn’t end up in a mental hospital.
