Jillian Michaels learned real quick, you don’t mess with Lizzo. Jillian who you remember used to be a trainer on “The Biggest Loser” appeared on a Buzzfeed show called “AM to DM” and was asked about Lizzo and how it’s great people are learning to celebrate bodies of all shapes and sizes, Jillian was quick to shut that down.

As you can expect, Jillian was flooded with backlash with one Twitter user saying “If I had been exposed to more Lizzo and less Jillian Michaels when I was younger, maybe I wouldn’t have spent half my life hating my body.” Lizzo herself has yet to comment but Jillian did posting stating that she thinks everyone is “beautiful, worthy, and equally deserving” but “I also feel strongly that we love ourselves enough to acknowledge there are serious health consequences that come with obesity.”
