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.

"I deal with that - deal with anxiety and depression," she said. "A lot of people may not know that. It's not always glitter and gold. It's a lot," she said in a livestream interview with XXL magazine during the Covid lockdown.

She said her immediate family has a history of mental health problems, and she believes in "self healing".

"I don't believe in, like... a therapist, I done had that, like I've had therapy. It just never worked for me."

Tennis superstar Naomi Osaka withdrew from the French Open after she was fined $15,000 and threatened with disqualification for refusing to take part in a press conferences.

The 23-year-old tennis champ, who plays for Japan, was a no-show during her post-match press conference on Sunday, May 30, after defeating Romania's Patricia Maria Tig.

Tournament officials at Roland Garros threatened Naomi and warned her that higher fines and a possible suspension could be issued if she refused to speak to the press.

Osaka made headlines last week when she issued a statement saying she would skip post-match press conferences at the French Open, citing mental health concerns.

"I've often felt that people have no regard for athletes mental health and this rings very true whenever I see a press conference or partake in one.

"We're often sat there and asked questions that we've been asked multiple times before or asked questions that bring doubt into our minds and I'm just not going to subject myself to people that doubt me."

And in an email to French Open officials Naomi insisted her actions are "100 percent nothing against the French Open or even the press members themselves."

In a statement posted on social media on Sunday, the world's No. 2 women's tennis player wrote:

"Hey everyone, this isn't a situation I ever imagined or intended when I posted a few days ago. I think now the best thing for the tournament, the other players and my well-being is that I withdraw so that everyone can get back to focusing on the tennis going on in Paris.

"I never wanted to be a distraction and I accept that my timing was not ideal and my message could have been clearer. More importantly I would never trivialize mental health or use the term lightly. The truth is that I have suffered long bouts of depression since the US Open in 2018 and I have had a really hard time coping with that."

Tournament bosses released a statement that read: "We have advised Naomi Osaka that should she continue to ignore her media obligations, she would be exposing herself to possible further code of conduct infringement consequences."

Officials said "repeat violations" could result in "tougher sanctions including default from the tournament and the trigger of a major offense investigation that could lead to more substantial fines and future Grand Slam suspensions."

Naomi was scheduled to play against Romania's Ana Bogdan during the French Open on Wednesday.

Snoop Dogg's daughter, Cori Broadus, opened up about having suicidal thoughts in a post on Instagram over the weekend.

Cori, 21, shared a series of photos that show her having a romantic seaside picnic with a friend.

In the post caption, Cori explained that she nearly took her own life in the last few weeks. She said her family and social media followers gave her "a purpose to live & helped me realize Iife is much more than materialistic things..."

"The last few weeks my mental has not been so great at one point I tried to end my life but you & my family really give me a purpose to live & helped me realize Iife is much more than materialistic things & you gotta just keep pushing through the bullshit. THANK YOU... #mentalhealthawareness."

Although Cori changed her mind about ending her life, she is not out of the woods yet.

Mental health experts say most people who have suicidal thoughts do not go on to attempt suicide. But suicidal ideations are a risk factor for suicide.

Expressing suicidal thoughts publicly means they may already be in the planning stage, and intervention is necessary.

Cori followed in her father's footsteps by recording a single titled "Do My Thang" in 2011. Snoop was featured on her single "Daddy's Girl" and she and rapper Drake were both featured on Snoop's No Guns Allowed album.

The tragic suicides of two Black teenagers prompted calls for more mental health services in one of the most neglected communities.

16-year-old Mikayla Miller (right) was found hanged from a tree just steps away from her apartment in Hopkinton, Massachusetts.

Mikayla's death touched off rumors that she was "jumped" by 4 white teens -- two boys and two girls -- who then carried her body into a wooded area and lynched her.

Just hours before she died on April 18, Mikayla fought with a group of white teens, including her ex-girlfriend, in the clubhouse of her apartment complex.

She suffered a bloodied lip, police said. The clubhouse showed signs of damage. Hours later, Mikayla walked into the woods and hanged herself with her belt.

Her family said Mikayla was a member of the LGBT community.

State law enforcement officials initially ruled her death a suicide. But pressure from her mother, Calvina Strothers, and community activists prompted police to take a closer look at the evidence.

Tracking her steps on her iPhone's Health app, investigators discovered she walked about 1,316 steps -- roughly the distance from the complex into the woods where her body was found the next morning.

Additionally police traced the GPS signals of the teens she fought with. None were in the woods that night.

"As to who else may have been in the woods or that area on Sunday, we do not have any information as to that," said Middlesex district attorney Marian Ryan.

Ryan doesn't believe Mikayla's death was the result of foul play.

A week later, Saniyya Dennis, a 19-year-old Buffalo State sophomore (pictured), went missing from her dorm room.

Saniyya's father, former Dipset rapper 40 Cal (Calvin Byrd), offered $10,000 for information on his missing daughter.

At an afternoon press conference on Thursday, police said Saniyya apparently jumped to her death from Niagara Falls after calling an ex-boyfriend 66 times.

A text she sent to her ex read: "I'm not feeling good - I think I'm going to kill myself."

Surveillance video from Saniyya's dorm in her final hours on April 24 showed Saniyya throwing personal items into a garbage can.

Police retrieved the discarded items and concluded that she didn't plan to return to her dorm room.

Hours later, she took a bus to Goat Island where she made a 45 minute phone call to a male friend. The male friend later told police he thought he'd convinced her not to take her own life.

Saniyya sent a text message to her mom telling her she loved her. Her cell phone pinged a tower close to the edge of Niagara Falls.

At 1:22 a.m. she sent her friend a final text message, assuring him she was back on the bus.

A minute later her phone left the cell phone network -- an indication that she either turned the phone off or it was destroyed.

"It appears that this poor girl took her own life," said Erie County DA John Flynn at a press conference on Thursday.

Flynn said her body may never be found because it is likely wedged in jagged rocks below.

A body recovered from the Mississippi River has been identified as 18-year-old Louisiana State University student Kori Gauthier.

Police say they don't suspect foul play in the disappearance of the LSU freshman.

She was last seen alive on April 6 by her boyfriend after the two had an argument.

Gauthier's car was found abandoned on the eastbound side of I-10 on the Mississippi River Bridge in Baton Rouge on Wednesday, April 7.

Police towed the car to a junkyard after another driver rear ended the vehicle on the bridge about 1 a.m.

Gauthier's family had offered $10,000 for information on her whereabouts.

Surveillance video footage and cellphone tracking were among the evidence that police presented to Gauthier's parents to support their theory that she jumped.

There is also "other evidence we shared with Kori's parents that we are not liberty to disclose publicly out of respect for their privacy," LSU chief of police Bart Thompson said at a press conference on Wednesday.

Kori's father, Levar Gauthier, told NOLA.com he had no idea his daughter was missing until she failed to show up to an orthodontist's appointment.

He said her former roommate used an app to track her cell phone to the junkyard where police had towed her car on Wednesday.

Her cell phone, keys, and wallet were found inside the car.

Gauthier's uncle Spencer said finding her body means the family can have closure. He asked her friends and supporters to continue to pray and uplift the family during their time of grieving.

He also urged his Facebook followers to honor his niece by listening to Stevie Wonder's song, "These Three Words."

The search for missing LSU student Kori Gauther has ended after human remains were found in the Mississippi River.

The 18-year-old Louisiana State University student was last seen alive on Tuesday, April 6. Her car was found abandoned around 1 a.m. on April 7, after another car crashed into it on the Mississippi River Bridge.

The abandoned car - with her cell phone and wallet inside - led investigators to speculate that she jumped off the bridge.

The body was found in the Mississippi River in Reserve, Louisiana, about 50 miles southeast of where the searchers were looking for Gauthier.

LSU police said the search focused on the area of the river after a cadaver dog targeted a dangerous stretch of water twice, Fox News reported.

The remains have not yet been identified by the coroner.

Police said late Saturday they do not suspect foul play in Gauthier's disappearance.

Gauthier's family and friends want answers.

The family said she went missing after arguing with her boyfriend, Tyler Toussant. He was the last person to see her alive.

Gauthier's sister defended Toussant in a social media post.

"STOP attacking her boyfriend. He has been in her life for a long time now. The way y’all are attacking him is sick. He is hurting just as much as us. He’s her family too. repost the posts and pass out a flyer and let the police do their job."

Women everywhere sympathize with Iyanna "Yaya" Mayweather (right) who is depressed and longing for her baby's father, NBA YoungBoy -- even though he's moved on with someone else.

Yaya, who recently gave birth to the 21-year-old rapper's 8th child, Kentrell Jr., took to social media to share a throwback photo of herself and YoungBoy when they were smitten with each other.

The 20-year-old's hopes and dreams were shattered when YoungBoy impregnated another woman -- while Yaya was still pregnant with his seed.

Yaya's followers begged her to let him go. They told her he's no good and he doesn't care about anyone but himself, but she doesn't care.

"I post what I want," she told her concerned fans on Instagram.

Yaya is content to be a loving single mom who waits by her phone for that one call that will never come.

Like most rappers, NBA YoungBoy has a plethora of children and baby mamas. When he's not making time for them, he's shacking up with his latest concubine, Instagram model Jazlyn Mychelle.

The couple was seen grocery shopping together in Houston, Texas last month.

Lizzo is just like you. The "Juice" singer admits she is still struggling with body image issues and negative thoughts. She's in a depressing head space so close to Christmas.

Speaking in a video to fans on TikTok, she said:

"I came home, and I took my clothes off to take a shower, and I just started having all of these really negative thoughts about myself. Like, you know, 'What's wrong with me?' 'Maybe everything, all the mean things people say about me are true.' And, you know, 'Why am I so disgusting?' and hating my body. I'd normally have some positive thing to say to get out of this (but I didn't this time). And that's OK, too. I think these are normal. They happen to everybody. They happen to the best of us. We are the best of us. I can only hope that it changes for the better. But I know I'm beautiful. I just don't feel it. But I know I'm going to get through it."

Meanwhile, Lizzo previously admitted fame "puts a magnifying glass" on her negative thoughts.

She shared:

"You can be the coolest, most richest person ever and it doesn't buy you f**king happiness. Money doesn't buy you happiness. Fame only puts a magnifying glass on the s**t that you already have. And if that s**t is f**ked up, you're just going to have even more magnified f**ked up s**t in situations where it doesn’t even seem valid or like you're even like supposed to feel that way and so it f**ks you up even more because you feel super f**king ungrateful."

Fans pleaded with Lizzo to seek help. The holidays can be the most depressing time of the year for many Americans.

Losing a job is always difficult. Last month, NeNe Leakes tearfully admitted she was fired from Real Housewives of Atlanta, the reality TV series she helped to create in 2008.

After calling bloggers liars for months, 55-year-old NeNe finally came clean during an episode of Tamron Hall. She confessed that she was forced off RHOA by the show's producers.

She stopped short of saying why (hint: her attitude needed adjustment).

Now NeNe claims she is "losing sleep" because of the "trauma" she's been through.

In a heavily filtered post on her Instagram stories, NeNe said, "I haven't slept well lately! Kinda in a daze. Sometimes when you've been thru [trauma] it's hard to sleep."

NeNe's followers expressed their support for her, saying she has a lot to live for despite being kicked off RHOA.

Others begged her to stay off social media due to its addictive and manipulative environment.
