Jillian Michaels Says She Was Wrong To Criticize Lizzo, But…..
Jillian Michaels is here to make it clear! Yes, she did talk about how we shouldn’t be “celebrating” Lizzo for being a fat and proud woman. But that’s not because she hates Lizzo… specifically. Jillian just hates obesity and we should never look at is a good thing. Well, Jillian is an “expert in her category.” Her category I’m assuming being verbally abusing non-skinnies into working out until they drop as she sucks the life out of them.
Jillian previously stated that her issues with Lizzo were purely medical, saying that being accepting of Lizzo’s size was bad because it, quote: “wouldn’t be awesome if she gets diabetes.” Sure, people were in Jillian’s mentions pointing out that thin hot woman, Halle Berry, is diabetic as is thirst-trapper and gay-baiter, Nick Jonas. But hey, that doesn’t matter! Fat people equals bad because it’s not just diabetes. The New York Post says Jillian spoke to former CNN host anchor Carlos Watson on his YouTube show and of course he had to bring up Lizzo. And Jillian condescendingly started by saying this:
“This poor woman, every single time I do an interview her name comes up–she must want to die.”
I wonder why Lizzo might not enjoy hearing a former Biggest Loser torturer tear into her every few months? Is that not fun? And then Jillian proceeded to rip into Lizzo again–but not Lizzo specifically–just fat people in general:
“I’ve never once actually brought her up, she has been brought up to me. I would like to separate her from the issue, if at all possible… I should have done that the first time I was asked, I should have said, “Let’s separate an individual from a conversation about health.” That is genuinely where I went wrong. That is literally the only place that I will tell you that I went wrong if the conversation is about celebrating obesity… Obesity is just unhealthy. That’s it.”
Jillian wasn’t done. She told Carlos that obesity was the biggest killer on the planet, saying it’s the biggest contributor to mortality rates in the whole world. Um… I want to say that poverty is probably one of the biggest contributors, but I don’t need Jillian yelling at poor people too.
She went on to spout facts about fat-induced health complications, saying: “Seven out of 10 Americans are on medication for obesity-related diseases,” and that “obesity is the top contributor to mortality over anything else going on in the world.”
Jillian acknowledged that people are going to hate on her for being a warrior against political correctness, but she will never stop telling the truth about the fat:
“When you are an expert in a category, you have a responsibility to tell the truth… Whether it makes you popular or not.”
Meanwhile, Lizzo remains unbothered:
What a savior, Jillian Michael is! Move over, Jesus! Heard of dying for our sins? Jillian is being a bitch for our waistlines. When the politically correct come to crucify Jillian for her disobedient bravery she’ll shout to the Heavens: “Forgive them, God! For they know not what they eat!”
