Lizzo announces break from Twitter because of trolls

06 January 2020, 14:58 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Lizzo has announced that she's taking a break on Twitter because of trolls.

The Cuz I Love You singer has been targeted by online trolls, with many body-shaming Lizzo.

It seems the trolling has become too much for Lizzo, as she announced last night (5 January) that she's leaving Twitter for the time being.

She wrote, "Yeah I can’t do this Twitter shit no more.. too many trolls... I’ll be back when I feel like it."

Before Christmas, a doctor tried to claim that Lizzo's fame was only due to the "obesity epidemic in America." Lizzo shut him down, writing, "I’m popular because I write good songs and I’m talented and perform high energy hour and a half shows filled with love."

Last month, Harry Styles covered Lizzo's "Juice" for BBC Radio 1. He said of Lizzo, "I just think she’s amazing; she’s one of the most exciting artists working now for sure. She’s exactly what you want an artist to be, which is themselves."
