Lizzo’s “worst fear” has come true after being referenced in a recent South Park episode. The episode titled “The End Of Obesity,” aired on May 24, and centers around the influx of Ozempic users. Lizzo’s music is presented as an alternative, encouraging users to embrace their weight just like the body-positive singer.

Lizzo Reacts on TikTok

In her TikTok reaction, Lizzo declared, “I’m so scared,” before playing the episode. The clip begins with a conversation between Sharon and Sheila, the moms of main characters Stan and Kyle. Sharon explains her lack of willpower to be active like her husband, Randy, and her inability to get Ozempic because she doesn’t have diabetes. As an affordable alternative, she’s now on “Lizzo.”

“I controlled all my cravings to be thinner with ‘Lizzo.’ I’ve lowered my standards and my expectations,” said Sharon, as Lizzo watched in shock. A parody commercial of the diet supplement starts with the narrator explaining how “Lizzo” costs “90 percent less than Ozempic” and “in a case study, 70 percent of ‘Lizzo’ users no longer care about their weight.”

Embracing Self-Love and Confidence

The ad continues, “‘Lizzo’ helps you eat whatever you want and keep physical activity to a minimum.” At one point, it cuts to someone listening to Lizzo’s latest album, Special, prompting Lizzo to exclaim, “Not the f***ing album!” Sharon ends the commercial stating, “Ask about the power of not giving a f*** with ‘Lizzo.’”

Lizzo responded, “Period,” and added, “I just feel like damn, I’m really that b****.” She expressed pride, saying, “I really showed the world how to love yourself and not give a fk to the point where these men in Colorado [South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone] know who the f*** I am, and put it on their cartoon that’s been around for 25 years. I’m really that b**** and I show y’all how to not give a f*** and I’m gonna keep on showing you how to not give a f***.”

Lizzo wrapped up her TikTok reaction with a playful jingle to the tune of the infamous O’Reilly Auto Parts one, “O-o-oooo Lizzoooo b***h.”

Despite the satire, she took the reference in stride, affirming her commitment to self-love and body positivity. She stated, “I really showed the world how to love yourself and not give a f**k.”

Facing Challenges

Lizzo, a long-time advocate for self-acceptance, frequently celebrates her body and encourages physical activity, as seen in her song Fitness. Despite enduring toxic comments about her weight, she remains a beacon of body positivity and neutrality, emphasizing that “my body is nobody’s business.”

Amid her success, she is currently facing two lawsuits from former employees alleging sexual harassment, racial discrimination, and a hostile work environment, which she denies. Her lawyers have called one lawsuit “a bogus, absurd publicity stunt,” while the singer described the other as containing “sensationalized stories.” In February, a judge blocked Lizzo’s motion to dismiss one of the lawsuits, a decision she has since appealed.
