TikTok has restored a video of Lizzo after the singer shaded the social media platform for taking down content of her in swimwear — implying it was removed because of her body type.
In a clip posted ever-so-slyly to TikTok, Lizzo is getting her hair done with a caption that reads, “Tiktok keeps taking down my videos with me in my bathing suits,” adding, “But allows other videos with girls in bathing suits.” She continues, “I wonder why Tiktok…we need to talk.”
All the while, the body-positive songstress is mouthing the words to a song with the lyrics “I know” repeatedly, insinuating that video content was taken down because of the way she looks in a swimsuit. The 31-year-old is passionate about body positivity and is known for flaunting her curves and twerking in very little clothing as a way of embracing her figure.
A spokesperson from TikTok, however, told Page Six that the platform has since contacted Lizzo’s team and assured them that the removal of the now-restored video had nothing to do with her body type.
The spokesperson told us that one of the videos initially did not appear to meet TikTok’s community guidelines because it looked like Lizzo was flashing her underwear, so it was removed. However, after TikTok reviewed the video and saw that Lizzo was in fact, wearing a bathing suit, TikTok restored the video to her page.
Lizzbians were quick to side with the Grammy winner.
“Because you’re glowing queen, and people cannot handle,” one TikTok user wrote.
“It’s so disheartening when TikTok picks favorites and discriminates…it happens to me I can’t imagine how much more it happens to others,” said another.
“Oh wow! Wouldn’t think they’d pull videos from stars. Disappointing. I do hope they talk to you,” a fan added.
