Lizzo defended by fans after attacking comic Ram Spears

Comedian Ram Spears is under fire for comparing Lizzo to the “st-emoji.”

Fans of the ‘Juice’ hitmaker were quick to defend her when Spears, 47, took some very personal jabs at her during an interview with the ‘Art of Dialogue’.

“I can’t help but think she looks like the s–t emoji,” he told the YouTube channel, which claims to “elevate hip-hop culture.”

‘She’s got a really pretty face, but she keeps showing off her body, come on, man. Come on, dude.”

He continued: ‘I’m sorry. Listen, I’m not the most in shape after in the world, but still me, if you’re funny and you’ve got swagger and confidence and you look decent – I think I’m pretty at the very least – you’ll get py. But a woman built like a plate of mashed potatoes is in trouble.”

Spears did not take his foot out of his mouth and chose to condemn women who supported Lizzo and were inspired by her self-confidence.

“You know what kills me about women is the hypocrisy and the contradiction,” Spears said, visibly starting to sweat.

F— diabetes, f— heart problems, f— heart disease, cholesterol. You claim femininity and about sisterhood and support for your sister, you know, when it comes to those ridiculous s—. But if you really gave…why not go, ‘Black girl, we love your confidence, boo, but this ain’t it. This isn’t it,” he said.

“That’s the real love!” Spears further claimed. “You’ll jump on me because I’m joking, but you won’t be real and say, ‘Sister, put the eclair down. This isn’t it. It’s treadmill time.’”

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

“I’m really stunned that Ram Spears had the audacity to attack Lizzo because she was fat. He’s a fat black man who encourages us to arm fat phobia against Lizzo, the math just isn’t math,” they wrote.

A second person chimed in: “The Lizzo hate still really gets under my skin because all that woman does is make good music, love her beautiful self AND encourage everyone to win,” while another user replied: Meanwhile, Lizzo is twerking and jumping on stage playing a wind instrument and this guy 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.
