Lizzo attends the 51st NAACP Image Awards, Presented by BET, at Pasadena Civic Auditorium on Feb. 22, 2020 in Pasadena, Calif.

Lizzo is calling out TikTok.

The songstress noticed that her videos in a swimsuit have been deleted by the social media platform, and in a new post on Tuesday (March 3), she seems to shade the platform for taking down her content in particular.

The video shows Lizzo lip syncing to an audio that repeat-sings the words, "I know," with a series of text overlays. “TikTok keeps taking down my videos with me in my bathing suits,” the clip reads.

"But allows other videos with girls in bathing suits," she continued, implying that her content is being targeted because of her body. "I wonder why? Tiktok... we need to talk."

The video currently has 8 million views.

Note: A TikTok representative informed Billboard after press time that the company loves Lizzo, and the swimsuit video in question, which features the songstress pulling up her skirt to reveal a two-piece, is now back on the site. See it below.
