That is so incredibly rude and judgemental of this woman. Unbelievable.

IMO, Lizzo would be crude and vulgar at any weight. I do not believe in "if you got it, flaunt it" is a good example to set.
I remember an obese singer named Kate Smith. She was very popular with the adults. Others were Pearl Bailey and Mahalia Jackson, both of whom had their sizes go up and down. Some get ahead with talent, others do not.

It’s interesting because Jillian is gay and has some PTSD or other things in her background that were very traumatic for her, so I’m surprised she would go the route of fat shaming someone.  Still, her whole career is based on promoting fitness.

You may not like her style of singing but she is a beautiful, talented woman.

She may be beautiful and talented singer but her taste in clothes is in poor taste, disgusting and downright lewd. Actress Chrissy Metz gas a great singing voice and dresses decently.

Not to argue, but I remember when Madonna was considered disgusting, lewd and outrageous.

She still is but having 5 or 6 children has mellowed her.
IMO, Madonna (and Miley Cyrus who has the same agent) and many like her, were very creative but unable to be noticed the way they wanted to be in music so they based their style on being outrageous. Madonna did a nice job in Evita but I was not a fan of hers.

I don't care what her job is. That is disrespectful to another human being and is completely inappropriate.
