Popular American singer Lizzo has slammed netizens who criticised her for sharing details of her detox juice cleanse on social media.

The 32-year-old singer had shared a series of videos on various social media platforms, documenting her 10-day smoothie cleanse regime. Netizens, however, blamed her for endorsing diet culture.

Responding to the backlash, the Cuz I love You singer took to TikTok to share yet another video and explained that her cleanse routine was not about losing weight. “I feel like, as a big girl, people expect if you are doing something for health, you’re doing it for a dramatic weight loss, and that is not the case,” she said.

Lizzo went on to talk about how she was stressed all throughout the month of November. “I drank a lot, I ate a lot of spicy things and things that f***ed my stomach up.”

And the 10-day cleanse was about getting back to routine. “I wanted to reverse it and get back to where I was. I’m so proud of myself. I’m proud of my results,” she said, adding that her sleep and skin health had improved, including her mental wellbeing.

Lizzo expressed how body positivity was about having control over one’s own body, without having to worry about what others would say. “I’m a big girl who did a smoothie detox and I wanted to share it with you guys. And every big girl should do whatever the f*** they want with their bodies.”

The Truth Hurts singer’s latest video garnered a lot of praise on social media, and many came forward to defend her. Here’s how they reacted:
