One of Jimmy Kimmel’s most iconic segments on his late-night talk show involves making celebrities read mean tweets about themselves. The responses have always been hysterical, but leave it to Lizzo to take things to the next level: The super-candid singer/rapper/flautist appeared on the show this week and delivered a razor-sharp response to a social media user who tried to body-shame her.
The mean tweet read, “Bus passes and Happy Meals. Two things that I imagine #Lizzo has seen a lot ” Lizzo took the tweet in stride, first laughing at it and then responding with, “Yeah, I’m a big bitch, and I ride a bus. A tour bus, motherfucker. Where’s yours?” A flawless clapback.
Lizzo is pretty much having the best year ever. She has two songs on the Billboard Hot 100 (one of which hit number one); her tour is selling like crazy; and she has a devoted legion of fans. No way is she letting a dumb tweet like this bother her.
Earlier this year the “Truth Hurts” singer talked to Glamour about why calling plus-size women “brave” is actually insulting. “When people look at my body and be like, ‘Oh my God, she’s so brave,’ it’s like, ‘No, I’m not,’” she said. “I’m just fine. I’m just me. I’m just sexy. If you saw Anne Hathaway in a bikini on a billboard, you wouldn’t call her brave. I just think there’s a double standard when it comes to women.”
Lizzo’s tweet read from this video is definitely the most memorable, but the segment also includes Billie Eilish, Green Day, Chance the Rapper, Monsta X, and Cardi B, who gets an honorable mention for her response to a user who said, “I just watched a muted performance of Cardi B, and that bitch just looks loud without any sound on.”
“How do I look loud? How do I look loud? I’m loud? I don’t even think I’m like loud. Suck my ass,” Cardi said in response. Mic drop.
