Lizzo has posted her live video reaction to a recent South Park skit in which they mocked her as part of an episode about the celebrity use of Ozempic.

On Friday, an episode of the adult animated show titled ‘The End of Obesity’ aired on Paramount+, containing parodies around the so-called weight loss drug Ozempic. It includes a spoof sketch where Eric Cartman can’t afford the drug, so his doctor prescribes him ‘Lizzo’, to train him in body positivity so he can stop worrying about his weight.

“I want you to listen to Lizzo five times a day, and watch her videos just before bedtime,” the doctor says. “I’m afraid you’ll have to be on Lizzo for the rest of your life.”

Lizzo, who has long advocated for body positivity, has now posted a video where she watches the skit for the first time.

“Guys, my worst fear has been actualised,” she begins by saying. “I’ve been referenced in a South Park episode.”

As the scene plays out and the ‘Lizzo’ drug is unveiled, the singer clasps her mouth in shock. “That’s crazy!” she exclaims.

“I just feel like, damn, I’m really that bitch,” she says. “I’m really that bitch. I really showed the world how to love yourself and not give a fuck, to the point where these men in Colorado know who the fuck I am and put it on their cartoon that’s been around for 25 years.”

“I’m really that bitch and I show you all how to not give a fuck and I’ma keep showing you how to not give a fuck,” she continues, before singing the jingle from the sketch.

Lizzo recently spoke out in support of college protesters in the US, as well as the causes in Palestine, Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

“I just want to take a second and give a personal thank you to all of the activists who have been working tirelessly to help the liberation and the freedom of the people who have been genocided all over the world, specifically Palestine, Sudan and the Congo,” she said.

“As someone who has worked closely with activists, I know the toll it can take on your mental and your physical and it can feel thankless so if you have not heard it today, thank you. Your work is not in vain. You have helped so many people, you have saved literal lives and, on a personal note, you have activated me.”

The singer also noted how seeing activists across the world has been “motivating” her amidst her “deep, dark depression” which she’s experienced over the last year. The singer recently hit out against online trolls in an announcement she had “quit” in March. Lizzo later clarified she meant “quit giving any negative energy attention”, and not music as many initially believed.

The message came after Lizzo’s request to dismiss her upcoming sexual harassment and discrimination lawsuit was denied by a judge in February. Lizzo was originally sued in August 2023, having been accused of creating a hostile work environment and sexual harassment at a strip club in Amsterdam.

In response, Lizzo said she was “hurt” and called the allegations “false”. Since the first lawsuit, lawyers have reviewed more complaints from other backup dancers. Lizzo was also named in a new lawsuit from a former hairstylist in September, which she further moved to dismiss.
