Lizzo announces Twitter break after being targeted by trolls

American singer Lizzo

Lizzo has announced she’s taking a break from Twitter after being targeted by trolls.

The Truth Hurts hitmaker took to the micro-blogging site on Sunday to let her fans know she will be logging off for a while because she can’t take it anymore.

She told her 1.42 million followers: “Yeah I can’t do this Twitter s*** no more.. too many trolls … I’ll be back when I feel like it. (sic)”

“Too many trolls … I’ll be back when I feel like it.”

The Good As Hell singer’s Twitter silence comes after she clapped back at a troll after they claimed she’s only popular because there’s an “obesity epidemic in America”.

Trying to spread positivity

Lizzo shamed a social media user last month after they discredited her talent, stage performance and songwriting skills and said her plus-size body has made her famous.

The troll said online: “Rather than encouraging people to do better, we are simply lying to them and telling them that they are just fine the way they are. Unfortunately, many of these people are dying from diabetes and heart disease. (sic)”

Lizzo hit back: “I’m popular because I write good songs and I’m talented and perform high energy hour and a half shows filled with love. The only person who needs to do better is you.

“Keep my name out ya mouth & look in the mirror before you come for me. Here’s the attention you ordered. (sic)”

Days earlier, the ‘Juice’ singer claimed she’s been trying to spread positivity through her music for a “long a** time”, but thinks her message is only just starting to resonate now that the “culture” around shaming people for their looks has begun to “change”.
