Lizzo reacts to ‘South Park’ episode that referenced her as Ozempic alternative

American rapper, singer, and four-time Grammy awardee Lizzo blindly reacted to an episode titled “The End of Obesity” from the hit and long-running American sitcom “South Park” in a TikTok video.

“South Park” is an animated American sitcom not entirely suitable for children due to its mature themes involving drugs, sex, violence, and the like. The storyline is set in South Park, Colorado, and revolves around the mishaps of four 10-year-old boys named Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny. Additionally, the sitcom is known for being offensive, often referencing celebrities and politicians. Recently, Lizzo became one of their targets.

“Guys, my worst fear has been actualized. I’ve been referenced in a South Park episode,” Lizzo took to TikTok her raw reactions on the episode

The episode premiered May 24th on Paramount+ showing Cartman struggling to find an effective and cheaper medication for weight loss other than anti-obesity drugs. His doctor directs him to an alternative medication called “Lizzo” and the episode represented this in a form of an album. Then a commercial of the said medication was shown.

Cartman even said “Rich people get Ozempic. Poor people get body positivity.”

“FDA-approved Lizzo makes you feel good about your weight, and it costs 90% less than Ozempic. … In case studies, 70% of patients on Lizzo no longer cared how much they weighed,” the jolly voice-over mentioned.

“Lizzo helps you eat everything you want and keep physical activity to a minimum. Some patients report constipation while listening to Lizzo. Stop listening to Lizzo if you experience suicidal thoughts. Serious side effects may include pancreatitis, hypothermia and literally excreting out your ears.”

The unhinged statements on eating excessively while keeping physical activities at minimum, stopping the medication if suicidal tendency occurs, and disclaimers of side effects left Lizzo shell-shocked.

The commercial ended up with a line saying: “Ask about the power of not giving a fuck with Lizzo.”

“Period! That’s crazy… I just feel like d*mn I’m really that b*tch,” the singer retorted. “I really show the world how to love yourself and not give a f*ck to the point where these men in Colorado know who the f*ck I am and put it on their cartoon that’s been around for 25 years.”

At the end of the episode, Cartman and Kyle decide to “not be critical of anyone over their weight ever again.”

Lizzo is known for being a vocal body positivity advocate. Last year, she was accused of sexual harassment and weight-shaming by her former dancers, which she denied.
