Lizzo, who is one of the top advocates for body positivity, got all emotional during her Instagram Live session on Sunday, August 15 while talking about all the hate she was getting for her comeback single ‘Rumors’ featuring Cardi B. The ‘Truth Hurts’ hitmaker had a breakdown over fat-shaming, racism while also speaking about the accusations of catering to White audiences.

In her Instagram Live video, the 33-year-old crooner stated, “For the most part, it doesn’t hurt my feelings. I don’t care. She continued, “I just think when I’m working this hard, my tolerance gets lower, my patience is lower, I’m more sensitive and it gets to me.” Cardi B, who had faced a similar situation for her collaboration with Normani on ‘Wild Side’, jumped to rescue the singer as she slammed the haters with multiple tweets. For the unversed, Lizzo and Cardi B’s song ‘Rumors’ was dropped on Friday, August 13 and soon peaked at number two on the US charts.

"I'm not even going to say them, to give them power" Lizzo said in her Instagram Live. "People saying s*** about me that just doesn't even make sense," the star shared. "It's fat-phobic, and it's racist and it's hurtful. If you don't like my music, cool. If you don't like 'Rumors' the song, cool. But a lot of people don't like me because of the way I look... "
The singer noted that it was frustrating to face all this hate because she's been working "quadruple" the time, but feels unappreciated. "Sometimes I feel like the world just don't love me back," she shared. 

"I think I'm just overwhelmed," she vented. "I think I've been in shock ever since the song came out... and I haven't really been able to sit and just congratulate myself. Like, I did it. I dropped a song, I said everything I wanted to say, I make music that I like, that's important to me, and I make music that I hope helps people. Period. I'm not making music for white people. I'm not making music for anybody. I'm a Black woman making music. I make Black music, period. I'm not serving anyone by myself... Everyone's invited."

‘They do this all the time,' says Cardi B

Cardi B, who remains unfazed despite getting canceled several times, waged a war on haters as she took to Twitter to extend support to Lizzo. She first stated, “When you stand up for yourself they claim your problematic & sensitive. When you don’t they tear you apart until you crying like this. Whether you skinny, big, plastic, they going to always try to put their insecurities on you. Remember these are nerds looking at the popular table.”

The ‘WAP’ hitmaker then said that body-shaming Lizzo was mean as ‘f**k adding that their song was doing great. “Rumors is doing great. Stop trying to say the song is flopping to dismiss a woman emotions on bullying or acting like they need sympathy. The song is top 10 on all platforms. Body shaming and callin her mammy is mean & racist as f**k.”  The Grammy-winning rapper further slammed the haters and tweeted, “They do this all the time. It’s a new tactic. They like to fill the comments with fake hate to persuade people opinions same way they harass every artist that works wit me try to scare people from workin with me but THE NUMBERS DONT LIE! what God Bless no man can’t curse .”

Lizzo, who was all vulnerable during her Instagram Live session, also took to Twitter later sharing an encouraging message to her fans and followers. “Loving yourself in a world that don’t love u back takes an incredible amount of self-awareness Loving yourself in a world that don’t love u back takes an incredible amount of self-awareness & a bulls**t detector that can see through a** backwards societal standards… if u managed to love yourself today I’m proud of u. If u haven’t, I’m still proud of u. This sh**s hard.”

Singer Chloe from the R&B duo Chloe x Halle also backed Lizzo as she thanked her for inspiring her. “I’m so proud of you @lizzo people are gonna talk, but you have power in your voice. thank you for inspiring me.” Lizzo soon returned the favor while also canceling the haters. “Thank uuu u know how it is out here but f**k the haters We Rise.” Lizzo also did not forget to thank Cardi B for coming to her rescue.

‘Cardi everything is not about you drop the sympathy’

Despite Cardi B taking down on the haters, it looks like social media users were in no mood to slow down. Continuing spewing venom, one troll stated, “Kinda feel like Cardi B did that song with Lizzo so she didn’t look as big. Chicks do that shit bro, trust me.” Another shared, “And you made it about you @iamcardib lizzo been getting this shaming since truth hurt and am not saying is okay but Cardi everything is not about you drop the sympathy.”
 
The next one tweeted, “That Lizzo & cardi song sucks idc ..” One user added, “How can you talk body positivity and then do a song with a plastic model called RUMORS and be mad that people don’t understand the mixed messaging. Cardi constantly talks about girls being wack and corny body wise.” One, however, spoke in the rapper’s favor and posted, “Y'all started bullying & dragging the artists that work wit cardi not because the song is bad it's because y'all hate seeing Cardi win.”
