Hey Hollywooders! What’s Good in the ‘Wood? With the steady rise of social media, we know it can be a positive place for growth and connection. Sometimes though, having access to the web can have its consequences. When people are behind a screen, they can say whatever they want without fear, hurting people in the public eye.

Usually, the easiest targets for scrutiny are celebrities. They are expected to put their lives out for people to see, even if they don’t get respect in return. Recently, Lizzo has been caught in the fire of mean-spirited social media users.

Lizzo broke down on social media about “racist” and “fatphobic” trolls

While most fans shared their excitement about Lizzo’s new single “Rumors” with Cardi B, some social media users posted some pretty mean and distasteful comments about the singer.

Lizzo got honest with her fans, hopping on Instagram Live to share how painful the negative comments felt. While the Instagram video has since disappeared, fans have saved portions of the video to share on Twitter.

“I’m putting so much loving energy into the world, and sometimes I feel like the world just don’t love me back,” Lizzo said on her Instagram LIVE, which has since been posted to YouTube. “It’s like it doesn’t matter how much positive energy you put into the world, you’re still going to have people who have something mean to say about you.”

Lizzo also shared advice to fans about the difficulty of finding self love within yourself:

“Loving yourself in a world that don’t love u back takes an incredible amount of self awareness & a bullshit detector that can see through ass backwards societal standards,“ Lizzo tweeted. “if u managed to love yourself today I’m proud of u. If u haven’t, I’m still proud of u. This shits hard”

We feel ya, Lizzo. We love your positivity and vulnerability!
