Lizzo took time to clap back at community leader Dr. Boykins after he claimed that the reason people love her and her music is because she is obese.

"Lizzo is popular is because there is an obesity epidemic in America," he wrote. "Rather than encouraging people to do better, we are simply lying to them and telling them that they are just fine the way they are. Unfortunately, many of these people are dying from diabetes and heart disease," Dr. Watkins tweeted.

Lizzo caught wind and fired back at the political commentator:

"I'm popular because I write good songs, and I'm talented and perform high energy hour and a half shows filled with love," she quipped. "The only person who needs to do better is you. Keep my name out ya mouth & look in the mirror before you come for me. Here's the attention you ordered."

Is Dr. Watkins right of is Lizzo really killing it out here?
