Facebook and Instagram have been removing hateful comments under pop superstar Lizzo's accounts after she broke down in a video about the hate she's faced, a Facebook company spokesperson confirmed to Billboard.
Upon the release of her first single in two years, "Rumors" featuring Cardi B, on Aug. 13, Lizzo hopped on Instagram Live over the weekend and shared an emotional confession about how much vitriol she's suffered from online trolls. The Grammy-winning pop superstar said that after grinding so hard on the new music she's put out, she feels more sensitive to the comments she receives.
"Sometimes I feel like the world just don't love me back. It's like it doesn't matter how much positive energy you put into the world, you're still gonna have people who have something mean to say about you," she said. "People saying s--- about me that doesn't even make sense. It's fat-phobic, it's racist and it's hurtful."
