Facebook and Instagram remove abusive comments from Lizzo’s accounts

Facebook and Instagram have come for body positive singer, Lizzo.

The social platforms have reportedly removed several hateful comments on the US singer’s accounts.

The move comes after the singer spoke tearfully about the “hurtful” abuse she’d received on social media.

A spokesman for Facebook told The Hollywood Reporter the comments which had been removed broke the company’s rules about hate speech and harassment.

Earlier this week, Lizzo said she had received attacks online which were “fatphobic” and “racist”.
