Lizzo fat-shamed for wearing see-through purple gown at event: 'Grossly obese'
Lizzo attended Cardi B's dancehall-themed 29th birthday celebrations in a see-through purple gown, with briefs and pasties beneath it
Lizzo astounded social media users as she attended Cardi B's dancehall-themed 29th birthday celebrations in Los Angeles on Monday, October 11, in a see-through purple gown and pasties. The 33-year-old Grammy-winning musician did not leave much to the imagination as she walked in barefoot, dressed in sheer, glittery purple gown, with briefs and nipple pasties beneath it. The star-studded event also saw Cardi B dressed in a shimmering purple Chanel top and leggings, showing off her sparkling diamond jewellery.
Lizzo's gown and overall look did not seem to go well with social media users. "Stop embarrassing yourself woman and have some self respect," one user wrote on Twitter. "#Enough The grossly obese Lizzo shows her ass and everything else in a see-through purple ‘gown’ #PublicIndecency #GetTheHose," another user wrote, while another wrote, "Mother of good! That beast is not for beginners."

This is not the first time that Lizzo has been criticised for her dress sense. Back in 2019, viewers were shocked as The 'Truth Hurts' singer wore a thong dress that exposed her backside at the Los Angeles Lakers vs. Minnesota Timberwolves game. Lizzo flaunted her looks by twerking while the Lakers Girls performed to her song "Juice".

Lizzo is known for her risque outfits both on and off stage, even at events like the Grammys or the BRIT Awards. She also speaks up and often about body positivity and being a plus-sized icon.
Lizzo recently faced backlash after she was spotted posing with Chris Brown backstage at the Oakland, California stop of his Millennium Tour. At the event, featuring performances from Ashanti, Bow Wow, B2K and more, Lizzo took a moment before their photo opp to tell Chris Brown that she is a great fan.
In a video that surfaced, Lizzo was seen talking to Brown, asking him, "Can I get a picture with you because you're my favorite person in the whole f---ing world." Lizzo posed for a solo picture with Brown, before her friends join in for a group photo. Fans, however, were irked by the fact that Lizzo posed with the 'Look At Me Now' singer, especially after the controversy in which he was accused of assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. He was later also accused of threatening a woman with a gun at his house in 2016. He also faced rape allegations in 2019.
Melissa Viviane Jefferson is professionally as Lizzo, and is a renowned American singer, rapper, songwriter, and flutist. The release of 'Cuz I Love You' in 2019 was a turning point in Lizzo's career, following which she started attracting more mainstream attention. This album debuted at number six on the Billboard 200, and three months after its initial release, it peaked at number four on the chart.
