Last week, personal trainer and author Jillian Michaels appeared on BuzzFeed News' morning show, AM2DM, where she was asked about Lizzo and body positivity.
"Why are we celebrating her body?" Jillian said. "Why does it matter? Why aren't we celebrating her music? 'Cause it isn't gonna be awesome if she gets diabetes." These comments immediately sparked backlash, and Jillian was called out for body-shaming:
Immediately after, Jillian issued a statement, saying that she "feels strongly that we love ourselves enough to acknowledge there are serious health consequences that come with obesity — heart disease, diabetes, cancer, to name a few."
And Lizzo issued a flute-dropping response of her own, saying, "If my name is in your mouth, so is my pussy, bitch. Enjoy the flavor!"
Well, yesterday, Jillian talked to Extra about the situation — clarifying her comments, but not apologizing:
"Here’s the reality. It was actually about The Biggest Loser and does that show work today. I said I don’t think so because I think the world has become so PC that we’ve gone so far to glamorize obesity. I think this is where things can become unsafe — that we’re denying the reality of certain health ramifications.”
