Celebrity exercise and health guru Jillian Michaels expressed her concern about singer Kizzo’s weight druing an interview with AM2DM by BuzzFeed News:
“Why are we celebrating her body? Why does it matter? Why aren’t we celebrating her music? ‘Cause it isn’t gonna be awesome if she gets diabetes.”
Michaels got slammed for her comments on Twitter:
Here's what I hate about @JillianMichaels opinion here. She wants to celebrate Lizzo's musical talent, not Lizzo.— KorGhee (@KorGhee) January 8, 2020
Her musical talent is one aspect. The messages that she communicates are a different one. People shouldn't be shaming others, but Jillian is doing exactly that.
JM has a lot to lose if people begin demanding we treat all bodies with respect. how come you’re the only one that gets to talk about bodies, J? your outdated, stigmatizing fearmongering is tired.— KathleenMeehan MS RD (@kathleenmRDN) January 8, 2020
Almost a year ago to the date, Jillian Michaels was publicly criticizing Al Roker & Halle Berry for promoting the Keto diet. Does Jillian Michaels have a problem with Black people? Is she out here lambasting the Kardashians et al for them tummy teas and shit?— A.Robb (@Pisceanluvher) January 8, 2020
