Lizzo was recently photographed on the beach in her bikini whilst on holiday in Brazil.

Lizzo is just out here living her best life, but sadly she's constantly the victim of cruel trolls who comment on her weight. In December last year, Lizzo was forced to defend an outfit she wore to a basketball game that was deemed "inappropriate" for her size. The following month she left Twitter after the harsh comments from "too many trolls" got to her.

Thankfully, there are many in Lizzo's corner, including Lauren Jauregui. The 'Expectations' singer dragged the trolls over "fatphotbic" remarks made about Lizzo, who was recently photographed wearing a bikini.

Basically, Lizzo is currently on holiday in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She's been documenting her vacay on Instagram, sharing photos of herself in a bikini because… what else would you wear on the beach? However, professional photos were taken of her and they've been circulating Twitter. Many left disgusting comments about Lizzo's body assuming that she is "unhealthy" and saying that she shouldn't wearing a bikini.

Well, Lauren wasn't about to let the haters be nasty to the Grammy-winning artist. She reposted the photo on Twitter, with the caption: "These fatphobic comments are what’s disgusting. WHY DON’T YALL WORRY ABOUT YOUR UNHEALTHY ASSES BEFORE TELLING ANYONE WHAT A 'HEALTHY' BODY LOOKS LIKE. Imagine thinking someone needs to not enjoy their current bodies at the beach because ignorant fucks have opinions...?!? STFU."

Lauren was praised for standing up for Lizzo and she continued to spread more positivity. In response to a fan, she tweeted: "It doesn’t matter what people say. Fuck them. You are ALLOWED to be happy, you are ALLOWED to live in your body as it is currently, Healthy looks SO MANY different ways. And 'Health' is not something that is accessible to everyone !!! LET IT OUT BE FREE LOVE YOU."

In another tweet, she opened up about her own body image issues. She added: "I feel you babe, I struggle with this majorly. When there’s pictures of me from unflattering angles or I’m not feeling my personal best and other people comment about it I FEEL AWFUL. But, I’m learning that I can only be affected by what I allow and believe about myself.

"It’s about shifting the mentality from 'fuck they think I’m fat' which is really ME thinking I’m fat and 'fat' being ingrained into my existence as a woman as equating with undesirable. NONE of these stories are true, it’s just about reminding yourself and actively unlearning."

She continued: "I want you to know I love each and every one of you so much and I’m so grateful for a fandom that is so loving and open to these conversations and constantly striving to grow. UNAPOLOGETIC RADICAL SELF LOVE ALL 2020 and BEYOND!!"
