Facebook has reportedly begun to delete many accounts of Lizzo haters after the singer faces fat-shaming and racist abuse since the release of her new single.
Lizzo recently released her first single Rumors on Friday after two years. On the track, Lizzo targets how her appearance and actions are discussed by the public and criticized those who spread gossip online.
After dropping the song, haters and trolls attacked the singer on the internet and Lizzo haters targeted her appearance and race. The harassment grew so severe that Lizzo broke down in tears on Instagram Live on Sunday (August 15), telling viewers, “Sometimes I feel like the world just doesn’t love me back.”
“These people who are saying this are probably the same people who are mad when I’m being hyper sexual and the mammy trope is actually completely desexualised.”
According to TMZ, Facebook has supported the singer by deleting the comments that increase hate speech on the internet on her Facebook and Instagram accounts.
