Lizzo was supposed to be celebrating this past weekend because she recently released her first single in almost two years, “Rumors,” which she co-wrote with Cardi B. But it was brutally interrupted by trolls who left cruel comments on her social media platforms. The singer was moved to tears by the posts, and she took to Instagram Live to express her feelings. “For the most part, it doesn’t bother me.” During the livestream, she stated, “I don’t care.” “I just think that when I work this hard, my tolerance, patience, and sensitivity all go down, and it gets to me.”
One social media network has already stepped up to protect her. According to TMZ, Facebook has defended the singer by removing a number of the harsh comments that had been left on her page. Furthermore, the company is going the extra step of deleting several trolls’ accounts. They also stated that the platform will continue to investigate additional allegations of offensive comments.
The news comes after Cardi defended Lizzo on Twitter after watching a clip of her Instagram Livestream. “When you stand up for yourself they claim your problematic & sensitive,” the rapper wrote. “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.” She added, “Remember these are nerds looking at the popular table.”
