In a video posted on TikTok yesterday, Lizzo implied the social media platform was removing her videos in bathing suits because of her body type.
The caption of the video reads, “Tiktok keeps taking down my videos with me in my bathing suits,” she says. “But allows other videos with girls in bathing suits,” then adding, “I wonder why?” And finishing the video with, “Tiktok…we need to talk,” all while slyly lip-syncing the words “I know.”
A spokesperson from TikTok said that the removal of the videos had nothing to do with Lizzo’s body size, but rather that it looked like Lizzo was in her underwear and therefore breaking community guidelines. The video has since been reviewed and restored.
Watch the clip below.
