Aries Spears Body Shamed Lizzo
In case you missed it, Aries had some very nasty comments about the singer during a recent ‘Art of Dialogue’ interview. The comedian said,
“I can’t get over the fact that it looks like the shit emoji. He has a very pretty face, but he still shows his body like, come on, man. Come on me.
He continued: “I’m sorry. Listen I’m not the fittest nigga in the world but still when you’re funny and you’re swagger and confident and you look decent I think at least I’m handsome you get p***y. But a woman who has the complexion of a bowl of mashed potatoes is in trouble.”
Shortly after Aries trended for his comments, backlash came and of course he responded but didn’t issue an apology.
Several people came to Lizzo’s defense, including comedian Mike Epps. Mike called out Aries for looking dirty and a failed run.
Congratulations Lizzie! Keep handling the haters with class!
