Social media can be a very dangerous place. We have seen the affects of social media and cyber bullying lead to the loss of lives, broken self esteem and self hate. As much as a fun tool social media can be, it can be dangerous if not used correctly. Lizzo is an example of someone who has had enough and is completely stepping back from the harsh words on the internet.
“Yeah I can’t do this Twitter sh** no more.. too many trolls,” she wrote in one tweet. “I’ll be back when I feel like it.” Lizzo tweeted on past Sunday. This was in response to the constant hate she gets regarding her weight. We can see a conversation being held between Lizzo and a Twitter user where she is defending her talents.
The Twitter user states, “Rather than encouraging people to do better, we are simply lying to them and telling them that they are just fine the way they are.” He then continues, “Many of these people are dying from diabetes and heart disease.”
Lizzo claps back saying, “I’m popular because I write good songs and I’m talented and perform high energy hour and a half shows filled with love,” Lizzo replied. “The only person who needs to do better is you. Keep my name out ya mouth & look in the mirror before you come for me. Here’s the attention you ordered.”
We are sending out good energy to Lizzo as we hope this doesn’t kill her fun bubbly personality.
