Lizzo defended by fans after attack from comic Aries Spears

Comedian Aries Spears has come under fire for comparing Lizzo to the “s–t emoji.”

Fans of the “Juice” hitmaker were quick to jump to her defense when Spears, 47, took some very personal jabs at her during an interview with the “Art of Dialogue.”

“I can’t get past the fact that she looks like the s–t emoji,” he said on the YouTube channel, which claims to be “elevating Hip-Hop culture.”

“She’s got a very pretty face, but she keeps showing her body off like, come on, man. Come on, yo.”

He continued, “I’m sorry. Listen, I ain’t the most in-shape n—a in the world but I still, when you funny and you got swagger and confidence and you decent looking – I think I’m at least handsome – you get p—y. But a woman that’s built like a plate of mashed potatoes is in trouble.”

Spears didn’t take his foot out of his mouth, choosing to condemn women who supported Lizzo and were inspired by her confidence.

“You know what kills me about women is the hypocrisy and the contradictions,” Spears said, as he began visibly sweating.

“’F— diabetes, f— heart problems, f— heart disease, cholesterol. Y’all claim womanhood and about sisterhood and support for your sister, you know, when it comes to that ridiculous s—. But if you really gave af—, why wouldn’t you go, ‘Black girl, we love your confidence, boo boo, but this ain’t it. This ain’t it,” he said.

“That’s the real love!” Spears further claimed . “Y’all jump on me for making jokes, but y’all won’t be f—ing real and go, ‘Sister, put the eclair down. This ain’t it. It’s treadmill time.”

One Twitter user was quick to hit back at the comedian.

“I’m really blown away that Aries Spears had the big mouthed audacity to attack Lizzo for being fat. He’s a fat Black man encouraging us to weaponize fatphobia against Lizzo, the math just ain’t mathing,” they wrote.

A second person chimed in, “The Lizzo hate still really gets under my skin because all that woman does is put out good music, love her beautiful self, AND cheer for everyone else to win,” while another user replied, “Meanwhile, Lizzo is twerking and jumping around onstage while playing a whole ass wind instrument and this man is dealing with labored breathing just sitting and hating.”

This isn’t the first time Lizzo has been in the headlines in recent weeks, after Kathy Hilton blamed her “terrible” eyesight for confusing Lizzo and “Precious” actress Gabourey Sidibe.
