“Seen a lot of slim chicks posting they workouts on here so I thought I’d join the fun,” captioned Lizzo on her workout TikTok video.
Lizzo, who’s known for championing body love and acceptance, shared a compilation of her workout routine with her song “Tempo” playing in the background. The singer isn’t calling anyone out, but she did bring up a good point that the fitness space on social media is mostly dominated by people who are conventionally fit.
Look, we believe that anyone can work out if they want to and plus-sized people really shouldn’t be shamed when they’re doing it. According to Shape, fat-shaming in the gym is common and is usually disguised as backhanded comments. One of the common ones is telling a plus-sized person that they shouldn’t wear activewear pieces that show too much skin because “no one wants to see that.”
