‘lies being told about me for clout and views'

— Lizzo

She announced her departure from entertainment via a post on her Instagram that ended with: “I QUIT.”

I’m getting tired of putting up with being dragged by everyone in my life and on the internet,”

“My character being picked apart by people who don’t know me and disrespecting my name. I didn’t sign up for this shit.”

Can’t let the haters win, Mama Lizzo. You are loved: keep going,” Mooring said.

May last year, Lizzo locked her Twitter account and threatened to leave the music industry amid a wave of body-shaming comments

Despite the scrutiny, Lizzo has led a successful career. She has won  four Grammy awards, an Emmy for Watch Out for the Big Grrrls,

and she performed the opening song in last summer’s Barbie movie.
