Lizzo is hitting back at body-shamers once again. 

On Monday, the 33-year-old responded to a backhanded compliment via Instagram, implying that while she is beautiful, she might still want to lose weight in the future.

"Lizzo really fine AF," the person wrote, adding, "And if/when she decides to slim down, she'll be sh—ing on all of y'all harder than she does now, dead—-."

The "Juice" singer is no stranger to shutting down body-shamers, so naturally, it didn't take her long to address the remark. 

Lizzo shared a set of photos for her more than 11 million followers, wearing a bold, formfitting dress.

"And here's the body...ain't sh— slimmin' down over here sweetie," she captioned the photo. "Pockets fat, pu—- fatter."

Fans praised Lizzo for combatting fatphobia and spreading body positivity.

"I'm honestly annoyed that people think if you were thinner you'd be more conventionally beautiful. Like, don't ppl know that 'conventional beauty' is something made up by the patriarchy — a bunch of old white dudes — to control women and make them think they're not good enough?" one person commented

"Slim down for what?" added another.

"Yes! Ee love a confident, bad b—-h! Don’t do anything for anybody but yourself. We love to see it," someone else wrote.

"It infuriates me that people make you feel like you have to defend yourself about your body constantly," another chimed in.

Following the release of her latest single, "Rumors," Lizzo took to Instagram to share a live video addressing some of the hateful comments she had received.

“It’s like it doesn’t matter how much positive energy you put into the world, you’re going to have people who have something, something mean to say about you,” she said. “It’s fatphobic, it’s racist and it’s hurtful.”

In a recent subsequent interview with Good Morning America, she added that the way she is treated is "unfair."

“I don’t mind critiques about me — my music,” she said. “I don’t even mind the fat comments, you know. I just feel like it’s unfair sometimes, the treatment that people like me receive.”

“Just remember that self-love is a journey. It doesn’t happen miraculously one day,” she continued. “It did not happen for me. There are gonna be beautiful days where you’re lookin’ in the mirror-like, 'ooh,' and then there are days where you’re like, 'unh-uh.' But all of those days is an opportunity to love yourself.”
