Jillian Michaels on Blast for Making Fatphobic Comments About Lizzo


In an interview with AM2DM, a live morning show by BuzzFeed News, fitness guru Jillian Michaels, who rose to fame as a trainer on The Biggest Loser, drew intense criticism for her fatphobic and ignorant comments about Lizzo's body. The outspoken personal trainer has said before that she believes "obesity in itself is not something that should be glamorized."

She reiterated her shortsighted views on AM2DM when discussing Lizzo. "I love celebrities like Lizzo or Ashley Graham," host Alex Berg says in the clip, "who are really preaching self-acceptance. And I love that they're putting images out there that we don't normally get to see, of bodies that we don't get to see being celebrated." That's when Jillian Michaels interrupts with her nonsense.
