Lizzo has made it pretty clear that she won’t be bowing down to what the haters say. On the heels of catching flack for twerking in a thong at a Lakers game, an old video has surfaced of Lizzo twerking at a fast food restaurant. Naturally, people have thoughts.
The video, which Lizzo originally shared on Twitter in April, shows Lizzo wearing booty shorts and an off-the-shoulder top as she bends over and twerks by the register of what appears to be a Jack in the Box. She’s wearing a bright green thong which you can also catch the action in the restaurant’s security camera, which the video pans to. “YALL SICK OF ME YET?! #ASSCHELLA,” she wrote in the tweet.
Even though the video was posted back in the spring, people are now commenting on it all over again. And many of them are letting her know they’re not OK with the video.
“Hate people who get famous and think they can do and act however they want, just cause they got some spotlight and money,” one person wrote. “I’ll pay you to stop please,” another said. “When I worked at McDonald’s, I put people out the restaurant for stuff like this. Now, they have to clean the counter,” another said.
Others said they were once fans of Lizzo, but are now turned off by her recent behavior. “I liked Lizzo at first because she had such a powerful voice and was a very good performer but lately im just confused why she’s acting like this???” one wrote. “This kind of behavior is gross from anyone of any size.”
It’s unclear why people are suddenly commenting on this video again, but it seems like it’s linked to Lizzo twerking at a Lakers game earlier this month. At the game, Lizzo wore a black T-shirt dress that had a cut-out in the back to show off her thong. Her song “Juice” played at one point, and Lizzo got up and twerked. People also had thoughts about that one.
Lizzo later spoke out about the controversy on her Instagram Story and made it clear that she didn’t care what people thought. “Who I am and the essence of me and the things I choose to do as a grown a** woman can inspire you to do the same,” she said at the time. “You don’t have to be like me, you need to be like you and never ever let somebody stop you, or shame you from being yourself. This is who I’ve always been.”
Lizzo hasn’t publicly addressed the most recent criticism.
