Ex-NHL Star P.K. Subban Faces Backlash for Body-Shaming Lizzo on Live TV

Subban Under Fire for Body-Shaming Lizzo on Live TV

What's up, my fellow celebrity gossip enthusiasts? It's your boy CelebDan here, and I've got some tea to spill. Ex-NHL star P.K. Subban is under fire for making a crass comment about none other than the queen of body positivity, Lizzo.

During a recent appearance on ESPN's "First Take," Subban was asked about his thoughts on Lizzo's recent appearance at a Lakers game, where she wore a revealing outfit that showed off her curves. Instead of taking the high road and praising Lizzo for her confidence and self-love, Subban chose to make a joke at her expense.

"I just love how she's so confident," Subban said sarcastically. "I mean, it's great that she's comfortable in her own skin and all that, but come on. Have a little self-respect, you know?"

As soon as Subban's comment hit the airwaves, social media exploded with criticism. Fans of Lizzo were quick to come to her defense, calling out Subban for his body-shaming and double standards.

But this isn't the first time that Lizzo has faced criticism for her body. In fact, she's been a target of body-shaming for years, simply because she doesn't fit into the narrow beauty standards that society has set for women. And yet, she continues to rise above the hate and spread a message of self-love and body positivity.

So, what can we learn from this latest incident? Here are a few takeaways:

  • Body-shaming is never okay. No matter who you are or what your platform is, it's never okay to make someone feel bad about their body. We should be celebrating diversity and promoting self-love, not tearing each other down.

  • Confidence is key. Lizzo's confidence is infectious, and it's a big reason why so many people look up to her. We could all learn a thing or two from her self-assuredness.

  • Double standards are alive and well. Let's face it: if a male athlete had worn a revealing outfit to a game, no one would bat an eye. But because Lizzo is a woman, she's held to a different standard. It's time to break down those barriers and start treating everyone equally.

At the end of the day, we should all be taking a page out of Lizzo's book and embracing our bodies, no matter what shape or size they may be. And as for P.K. Subban? Well, maybe he needs to take a long, hard look in the mirror and ask himself why he feels the need to tear others down to make himself feel better.
