Candace Owens, host of the Daily Wire podcast “Candace,” slammed singer Lizzo and her fans, along with the “fat acceptance” movement, for “advocating” for “depression” and ”unhappiness.”
Lizzo has consistently promoted and taken pride in her weight and fatness, once seeming to clarify her dedication to the fat acceptance movement after she went on a 10-day health detox, and getting significant backlash for apparently going against the movement.
“What she’s advocating for, really, is depression, unhappiness,” Owens told host Brett Cooper on The Daily Wire’s “Comments Section.” “Eating Oreos … and drinking Cokes all day is not going to make you a happy individual.”
“I feel like people should know that, because that’s what Hollywood does: They advocate lies that actually harm individuals,” she added.
“There is no way that somebody that is that size is happy, and I want to make that abundantly clear,” Owens asserted. “She may have all the things that she has, and she may have access to private jets, and she may be smiling in these commercials, and have a fat bank account … but at the end of the day, you cannot carry that much weight on you and wake up and be happy every day.”
Cooper and Owens agreed that Lizzo, real name Melissa Viviane Jefferson, is a talented performer, and has a “bubbly” personality, but has become a “symbol for overindulgence,” to many.
“I love food, I love being fat, I love to be fat in front of my private plane and be half naked — and if you don’t like it, it’s because you’re problematic and not me,” Owens said, mocking the singer’s previous controversy in which she stood in front of a private jet in photos wearing clothes revealing her backside.
Owens also slammed the singer’s fans for cheering on what she viewed as Lizzo’s eventual demise.
“Lizzo, your fans hate you, they’re obviously advocating for you to die, you just can’t see it because they’re cheering you on as you kill yourself.” Owens said, “Your music is great, but also your fans want you to die.”
Owens noted that she was, “not shaming fat people who want to be better. I am shaming fat people who are pretending that fat is a good way of living. It’s a lie. It’s just a lie.”
She went on to note that her father, who’s “struggled with obesity his entire life,” recently lost 80 pounds, and said that “He’s just so happy.”
“He had a wake-up call when he got really sick from COVID, because obesity impacts everything,” she said.
