Okay, we’re beginning to understand why Lizzo needed a break from the interwebs for a bit…

Celebrity fitness trainer Jillian Michaels came under fire on Wednesday for making a very controversial comment on BuzzFeed‘s AM to DM show where she seemed to fat shame the Truth Hurts singer.

The drama started when host Alex Berg praised the songstress and others who promote body positivity and self-acceptance, but the 45-year-old Biggest Loser star countered to get this sentiment off of her chest:

“Why are we celebrating her body? Why does it matter? That’s what I’m saying. Like why aren’t we celebrating her music? ‘Cause it isn’t gonna be awesome if she gets diabetes.”

In a follow-up comment, she continued:

“I’m just being honest. I love her music, my kid loves her music. But there’s never a moment where I’m like, ‘I’m so glad that she’s overweight.’ Like why do I even care? Why is it my job to care about her weight?”

Oof.

So, as a fitness and health enthusiast, it’s not your job to care about the entertainer’s weight, yet you felt the need to make such a tone-deaf comment like that?

This is… bad. We’re just going to call it right now. But of course, we’ll let you make your own informed decision.

Unsurprisingly, the harsh remarks were immediately met with backlash!

Tons of social media users accused Michaels of perpetuating inaccurate stereotypes and fat-shaming Lizzo, who recently took a hiatus from Twitter over internet trolls and bullying.
