“This is disapointing (to say the least) because Aries used to be funny. IDK if he thought a “Lizzo is fat” joke was low hanging fruit or if he’s triggered seeing her get the support he wishes he got when his career stalled as a result of his weight, bu this ain’t it,” says user @bombusername. Another user @SupernovaMomma wrote: “I’m not RTing that video but Aries Spears is filled with a bunch of self hate. That was disgusting to watch. I couldn’t even finish. So hateful, hypocritical, and delusion.”
Eventually, Aries doubled down on his critique, posting videos addresing the Lizzo fanbase. But Lizzo came with the classiest of all clapbacks, in true Lizzo form.
During her acceptance speech for ‘Video For Good’, Lizzo addressed the body-shaming controversy. “And now, to the bitches that got something to say about me in the press,” she says as the crowd roars. “You know what, I’m not gonna say nothing. They be like, why don’t you clapback, why don’t you clap back? Bitch, because I’m winning, I’m winning…”
Good for you, Lizzo. Beyonce said it best: “Always stay gracious, best revenge is your paper.”
