Jillian Michaels Stands By Her Lizzo "Diabetes" Comment

Jillian Michaels

After Alex Berg, host of BuzzFeed's AM2DM show, mentioned Lizzo's body-positive politics, Michaels launched into a lengthy tirade. At one point in the conversation, the topic shifted to the popularity of body positivity, with the message of self-acceptance being encouraged by a number of stars like Ashley Graham and Lizzo. During their chat, Lizzo came up.

"The unhealthiest thing about Lizzo is the unrelenting national obsession with whether her body is "acceptable, '" tweeted singer Brad Walsh". "Why does it matter?"

"Here's what I'm going to say. Why don't we celebrate her music?" "'Set off it isn't gonna be superior if she's going to get diabetes", she boldly acknowledged. "I'm sure she's a cool, awesome chick", Michaels said.

Critics quickly shammed the fitness expert, noting that not only do people already celebrate Lizzo's music, but both her music and her body can be celebrated at the same time. The successful personal trainer shared her controversial opinion when she sat down for an interview with AM3DM by BuzzFeed News and explained that although she loves the talented artist's songs, she doesn't think we should care about her figure. "But there is never a moment when I'm overweight".

And that's most of what was in the clip that circulated on Twitter, which was what most people seemed to be reacting to when they started condemning Michaels for, well, everything. She just doesn't understand why she's supposed to celebrate Lizzo's body as well. "She made her fortune out of only celebrating one type of body, created through intense restriction and shame". "Part of that, especially as a plus-sized person in this culture, is rejecting the fatphobic hatred exemplified by Jillian Michaels".

Lizzo recently announced she was quitting Twitter because of trolls and people were quick to pummel Michaels for her comments. "Fat doesn't equal diabetes".

"Good Place" actress Jameela Jamil, who's always been an outspoken body positivity advocate, also chimed in on the controversy, asking for the world to "get off Lizzo's d***". Followers can't wait to see her deal with 2020 with that exact same verve she launched to the world! "Stop concern-trolling fat people and get in the bin".

"Jillian Michaels hates her own body and is anxious that if other people hate their bodies less, they'll stop buying [what] she peddles".

"As I have said repeatedly, we are all attractive, worthy and deserve it equally", she wrote. I moreover actually really feel strongly that we love ourselves adequate to acknowledge that there are extreme healthful penalties that embody weight issues - coronary coronary heart sickness, diabetes, most cancers to name only a few.

The fact that she's able to sing, dance, play the flute, and put on an entire show without getting winded is proof alone that Lizzo is healthier than many of her naysayers claim.

"Today's mantra is: This is my life. I have done nothing wrong", the music star captioned the post. "I deserve to be happy".
