Lizzo’s swimwear videos have been restored on social media site TikTok after she suggested her posts had been removed due to her size.
The Truth Hurts hitmaker, who is known for flaunting her curvy figure, shared her frustration about the deleted clips in a post uploaded to the app on Wednesday, in which she was shown having her hair styled while lip syncing along to a track which repeatedly featured the words “I know”.
Lizzo captioned the footage, “TikTok keeps taking down my videos with me in my bathing suits but allows other videos with girls in bathing suits. I wonder why?”
She then addressed site officials directly, adding, “TikTok… we need to talk,” concluding her post with a single angry-looking emoji.
It appears Lizzo’s pointed complaint caught the attention of TikTok bosses, who have since reviewed her content and restored the footage.
A spokesperson informed the New York Post’s Page Six that they have been in touch with the 31-year-old’s representatives, insisting her body type had nothing to do with her video removals.
Instead, they had flagged her clips for what they believed was the flashing of underwear, a violation of TikTok’s community guidelines. Yet, after revisiting the footage, moderators realised Lizzo had actually been wearing a bathing suit, and allowed all of her previous posts to be restored.
