And then there’s Lizzo and her followers who are convinced she is a “full figured” celebrity fighting the evil body shamers.
No. She is morbidly obese and her health is at risk and she’s taking others down with her rather than admit that, in spite of her talent in her chosen fields, she is a monumental failure at keeping her weight within a healthy range and she may die far too young because of that.
She is the (literal) poster girl for more than acceptance. She doesn’t push to make obesity accepted, her deal is to make obesity NORMATIVE. And, with an obesity epidemic in this country, she has combo fans…her music fans and her fans who want to hear that obesity is normal at the same time that the death rate from COVID-19 is triple that of the non-obese patient.I don't know her or anyone else doing this currently, but somebody needs to be fighting for acceptance for people no matter what size they are.
