Before we begin, I feel compelled to make an announcement. This is not The Babylon Bee. I repeat; this is not a piece from America’s premier satire site. Okay; let’s proceed.

On the crazy-train ride we call 2020, nothing should surprise us, anymore. Sadly, this story doesn’t surprise me, at all; neither should it surprise you.

Grammy award-winning singer Lizzo, who is morbidly obese — I do not say that as ridicule or condemnation; it is a simple fact — is being castigated by the ever-woke PC police for trying to lose weight, as reported by The Blaze.

Her “crime”? Lizzo, whose real name is Melissa Viviane Jefferson, is “succumbing to ‘fatphobia.” And with that crime, Lizzo is betraying the so-called “body-positivity movement.”

Lizzo recently spoke candidly to her fans on Instagram, explaining that her weight and “stress-eating” are “self-harming,” including the onset of “gastrointestinal issues.”

“I think I just wanted to stress eat and do things that were like, kind of self-harming. I think that it’s just great to reset your stomach and reset things, especially when you deal with gastrointestinal issues like I do. But I think I look f***ing great, too.”

And on Tuesday, Lizzo said the following on Instagram:

“I detoxed my body and I’m still fat. I love my body and I’m still fat. I’m beautiful and I’m still fat. These things are not mutually exclusive. To the people who look to me, please do not starve yourselves.

“I did not starve myself. I fed myself greens and water and fruit and protein and sunlight.

“You don’t have to do that to be beautiful or healthy. That was my way. You can do life your way. Remember, despite anything anyone says or doesDO WHAT YOU WANT WITH YOUR BODY✨”

Yet? Check this out:

“Fans were surprised that the body-positive artist had tried the diet & said that posting it online was ‘triggering’ for people with eating disorders.

“I detoxed my body and I’m still fat. I love my body and I’m still fat. I’m beautiful and I’m still fat.”

That is insane. As is the case will “Dr.” Jill Biden, I’m not a doctor, but common sense and a modicum of knowledge suggest that this young woman might not see age 50 if she doesn’t — wait for it, left-wing loons — lose some serious weight.

It gets worse.

Enter, Stephanie Yeboah, author of “Fattily Ever After: A Black Fat Girl’s Guide to Living Life Unapologetically“. An understanding of what Yeboah and her book are about is necessary to fully understand her lunacy.

The truth is, body positivity is for white women. White female bodies being safe is paramount to maintaining white supremacy.”

Se what I meant when I referenced The Bee?

Twenty-nine-year-old plus-size blogger Stephanie Yeboah has experienced racism and fat-phobia throughout her life. From being bullied at school to being objectified and humiliated in her dating life, Stephanie’s response to discrimination has always been to change the narrative around body-image and what we see as beautiful.

In her debut book, Fattily Ever After, Stephanie Yeboah speaks openly and courageously about her own experience on navigating life as a black, plus-sized woman – telling it how it really is – and how she has managed to find self-acceptance in a world where judgment and discrimination are rife.

Apparently, Stephanie Yeboah was crestfallen upon learning that an obese young woman is concerned because her weight and stress-eating are harming her body, and has decided to lose weight in what most likely would be a life-saving decision.

Yeboah implored: “Lizzo….girl. Why?”

Alas, in Yeboah’s warped mind, an overweight human being trying to lose weight for health purposes is proof positive of “violence towards fat women.”

“Every Big Girl Should Do Whatever the F— They Want.”

Lizzo, on the other hand, declared on Monday: “Every big girl should do whatever the f**k they want.” You go, girl.

Yeboah, meanwhile, went on and on and on, on Twitter. Here are several of her “highlights.”

“I think the disappointment lies in a lot of us (especially fat, black women) seeing ourselves in a woman who was so proud and confident in her body.”

“It made us want to do the same to ours,” she lamented.

“I have empathy for those who succumb to the pressures of fatphobia — especially when you are in the public eye.”

Especially when you exist within several intersections that carry little privilege,” she added. Translation: “Especially when you don’t have white privilege.”

The true enemy here is fatphobia.”

Wrong, Steph-O. The “true enemy” here in Lizzo’s case is “death phobia,” you moron.

After a while, Steph-O said, “That’s all.”

Then again… “We all recognise [sic] the benchmarks of the beginnings of fatphobia,” she continued, “and in this case it seems it’s slowly beginning to happen here, whether intentionally or unintentionally.”

The woman is a lunatic. Again, what’s “slowly beginning to happen here,” is a young woman beginning to understand that her health, if not her life, is in danger if she doesn’t make some very significant changes.

And you know what else, Stephanie? Too bad if “a lot of people are upset.” That’s on them, not on Melissa Viviane Jefferson.

During a recent appearance on “Inside Edition,” Lizzo revealed that she’s been struggling with her body image.

“I just started having all these really negative thoughts about myself,” the 32-year-old singer revealed in a video posted to social media. The Grammy winner is famous for embracing her curves, but now she’s reminding her fans that she’s human, too. “I know I’m beautiful. I just don’t feel it, but I know I’m gonna get through it.”

For starters, Lizzo needs to block Stephanie Yeboah on all of her social media accounts.
