“Let these beautiful Black women be great, stop judging,” he said. “We work hard to be entertainers for the world. Let us be.”
The Migos rapper also gave kudos to Facebook for deleting the comments from their platform.
"People saying s**t about me that just doesn't even make sense,” she said in the post. "It's fatphobic, and it's racist and it's hurtful. If you don't like my music, cool. If you don't like 'Rumors' the song, cool. But a lot of people don't like me because of the way I look."
Lizzo spoke candidly about the abuse she’s received while wanting to be an agent of change with her music.

“It's like it doesn't matter how much positive energy you put into the world, you're still going to have people who have... something mean to say about you,” she continued. “And for the most part it doesn't hurt my feelings; I don't care. I just think when I'm working this hard, my tolerance gets lower. My patience is lower. I'm more sensitive and it gets to me."
Cardi B, Chloe Bailey and many others took to social media to encourage and affirm Lizzo’s beauty and greatness.
Lizzo received a timely letter from Missy Elliot who offered some empowering words in her moment of difficulty.
“Once every few decades, someone breaks the mold. And you are one of those people,” Elliot wrote. “Continue to shine and be blessed through your next journey."
