I find it curious that #Adele was NEVER met with the same level of venom & vituperation, regarding her weight, that @lizzo receives. ????

It's sad that it takes someone losing weight for y'all to notice their beauty... @Adele has always been stunning but up until now she was just "talented" or "funny" YALL FAKE!

Celebrating Adele's weight loss is a garbage thing to do for a million reasons. Here are two: 1. It tells your fat friends you think their bodies are a problem to be solved. 2. The weight loss could be the result of physical or mental health struggles. Weird to cheer about!
