Lizzo, the pop star known for her advocacy of body positivity, recently addressed jokes made about her in a special episode of ‘South Park’. The episode, titled “The End of Obesity”, aired on Paramount+ last Friday. It humorously featured characters recommending ‘Lizzo’ instead of diabetes drugs like Ozempic and Mounjaro. Lizzo shared her reactions through a TikTok video last Saturday, revealing mixed emotions but ultimately embracing the parody as a testament to her influence.

During the ‘South Park’ special, characters humorously prescribed ‘Lizzo’ as a metaphorical treatment for self-acceptance issues related to body image. Phrases like “I’m going to write you a prescription for Lizzo,” and satirical endorsements such as “FDA-approved Lizzo makes you feel good about your weight,” were part of the biting humor. The show suggested that listening to Lizzo’s music and embracing her messages could psychologically benefit people struggling with body image.

Responding on TikTok, where she boasts nearly 26 million followers, Lizzo initially expressed fear. She said, “My worst fear has been actualized. I’ve been referenced in a South Park episode.” However, after viewing the episode, her tone shifted to pride over her reach and impact. She emphasized her role in promoting self-love by stating, “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.”

‘South Park’, known for its provocative and satirical approach to cultural topics, often uses public figures to amplify its critiques or comedic narratives. In adopting Lizzo as part of their storyline on societal obsession with diets and body image, they highlighted how mainstream media is increasingly addressing these complex themes. Meanwhile, Lizzo continues leveraging her platform to champion body positivity and inspire her audience.
