Jillian Michaels Doesn’t Want Us Celebrating Lizzo’s Body

January 9, 2020 / Posted by:

Jillian Michaels has finally stood up and bravely asked: “Why do we like Lizzo if she’s fat?” Well not really, but basically. During an extremely cringey BuzzFeed interview, Jillian wondered: “Why are we celebrating her body?” and that it’s going to be great when Lizzo gets Diabetes. And then after getting dragged on the internet, Jillian doubled-down.

When I first saw this interview 45-year-old Jillian did with Buzzfeed News’ AM2DM morning show, I was sweating for the host girl with the TERF bangs, Alex Berg. She’s like: “I love that people are showing different body types!” and Jillian looked her in the eyes and basically said, “Girl, even the fat ones?” This is their exchange:

Alex: “I love celebrities like Lizzo or Ashley Graham who are really preaching self-acceptance–”

Jillian: “I love her music! 100%. I don’t know anything about her–I’m sure she’s a cool, awesome chick.”

Alex: “…Yeah, and I love that they’re putting images out there that we normally don’t get to see–of bodies that we don’t get to see being celebrated–”

Jillian: “But why are we celebrating her body? Why does it matter? That’s what I’m saying–Why aren’t we celebrating her music? …’Cause it’s isn’t going to be awesome if she gets diabetes.”

Jillian went on:

“I’m just being honest! Like, I love her music–my kid loves her music. But there’s never a moment where I’m like: “And I’m so glad that she’s overweight!” Like, why do we–why do I even care? Why is it my job to care about her weight?”

Ask yourself, Jillian, since you’re the one who seems bothered. Here’s the clip:

Jillian then hopped on Instagram to apologize–JK, she said obesity is real and told us to fuck off basically:

And on Tuesday, Jillian was on PeopleTV’s Reality Check, talking about more body stuff. The topic was “body neutrality”–a movement encouraging people to “not care what their bodies look like, but to instead to own who you are.” Jillian thinks that’s absolute garbage:

“If I was 100 pounds overweight, I wouldn’t hate my body. I would work out because I love myself, not because I hate myself. I want to be healthy, and I would want all the benefit that brings… Things today have become so politically correct. …We’re like, “You’re 250 pounds and have hardened arteries and you love it! God, that’s inspiring!” No!”

But listen, she’s not judging:

“I don’t think I should judge that person or slap them on the back for being unhealthy. I think I should mind my own business. That’s up to that own person.”

So mind it, Jillian! But she wasn’t done. TMZ caught up to her Thursday in New York and she told them:

“Here’s what I’m going to say to you: I’m a health expert. For decades I have said repeatedly that your weight and your size have no bearing or merit on your value, your beauty, your worth, your ability. Where it does have relevance is: your health. And to pretend that it doesn’t is not only irresponsible, it’s dangerous. And it’s just not a lie I’m willing to tell because it’s politically correct.”

Because it’s a well-known fact that as a society we’re all very kind to fat people. She continued:

“Her health is her business, but again: I am a health expert. People come to me, they ask for health information.”

Did Lizzo? Like damn. And what do you want her to do? We can’t be fat because it’s gross. But don’t do Crossfit, Jillian thinks that’s cheating. You also can’t do keto which is stupid–sorry Vinny Guadagnino AKA Keto Guido, Jillian wants you to screw yourself just like Lizzo. So what? We’re all just supposed to be hyper-buff power-lesbians who are fit from working out constantly and redirecting all emotional output into muscular development and bitchiness? If being this fit makes you this sour: I’ll pass. Also I refuse any diet that doesn’t include the Popeyes chicken sandwich.
