Conservative commentator Candace Owens has been getting flamed pop star Lizzo’s fans for body shaming the artist over a naked snap.
The Twitter drama began on Wednesday, after Owens commented on a photo fitness influencer Gina Bontempo shared of the “Truth Hurts” singer posing naked with a cup of coffee.
“Obesity is on the rise and yet women are told by celebrities and the media that being obese is normal and ‘healthy,'” Bontempo captioned her Tuesday post.
“You never see them try this with men. Only women are insecure enough to fall for it.”
A day later, Owens wrote that woke women were “more irrational” than men.
“Only women could be emotionally manipulated into supporting their own eradication via support for ‘trans men,'” the conservative author replied.
“Only women could be fooled into supporting a death cult of “fat acceptance”. Today’s cultural battles prove that women are more irrational and emotional than men.”
The “Good As Hell” singer’s fans came out in droves to attack Owens for the commentary.
“The point is about acceptance and love,” one person wrote. “Words you seem to have difficulty embracing in your life.”
“I guess being a self hating black grifter wasn’t enough, had throw misogyny into it as well. Neat,
“You always choose the narratives of white conservative men over yourself. It’s amazing to watch,” someone else added.
Owens was undeterred by the hate, and continued on a thread about how women will lie to each other about their appearances, while men will tell one another how it really is.
“If you peep comments on any of Lizzo’s “fat acceptance” photos, you will undoubtedly find a score of batshit insane women telling her that she looks beautiful,” she wrote in a follow-up post.
“Men do not lie to other men in this way. They do not pretend that clinical obesity is beauty.”
She note that men don’t “celebrate one another’s failures,” and must be exceptional at something to be lauded by other men.
“They strive toward excellence. Women? Not so much,” she continued. “We lie. Emotional-based lies that are ruining society.”
Owens shared a meme posted by the Daily Wire’s Alyssa Cordova, which depicted a woman asking another if she was fat, while the other cried and told her she was so beautiful.
In the same image, when one of the men shown below asked the same question, his buddy responded: “Bro, I know five fat people and you are four of them.”
Owens shared additional photos of Lizzo dressed evocatively late Thursday morning.
In one paparazzi snap, she seemingly twerked on a basketball court wearing a dress with a gaping hole in the backside, and her rear only covered by a thin black thong.
In another photo, the “About D–n Time” singer boarded a plane in bra and pants that once again had no coverage in the seat area.
“LOL to everyone telling me that Lizzo is allowed to be naked in public but the public is not allowed to comment on her body. Gaslight someone else,” Owens captioned.
“You don’t get to do outlandish things and then be offended when people comment on your outlandishness. She wants attention.”
This isn’t the first time Owens has publicly gone after Lizzo’s appearance. In an interview with Brett Cooper’s “The Comments Section,” the conservative pundit criticized Lizzo for apologizing to fans for losing weight.
“If you love Lizzo, you shouldn’t want Lizzo to die,” she remarked. “And she’s going to die, because the number one killer in America is obesity, so I don’t care about how you feel about your obesity, you’re going to die of heart disease.”
Cooper aired an Instacart ad that displayed Lizzo in a bath tub ordering groceries, and Owens said that the company selected the singer because she has “become a symbol for overindulgence.”
Later in the interview, Owens claimed that she wasn’t hating on the nation’s overweight population.
“I’m not shaming fat people who want to be better,” she stated. “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.”
