Facebook and Instagram have got behind our queen Lizzo.

The social media companies made this decision after they saw the effect that comments were having on her mental health.

Following the release of her new single, "Rumors" featuring Cardi B, Lizzo hopped on an Instagram Live and shared an emotional confession about how much she's suffered from online trolls. 

The Grammy-winning pop superstar said that after grinding so hard on the new music she's put out, she feels more sensitive to the comments she receives.

"People say s**t about me that doesn't even make sense. It's fat-phobic, it's racist and it's hurtful."

Facebook and Instagram will be monitoring comments under her accounts that go against the rules of their platforms like hate speech, bullying, and attacks on one's characteristics, including race.
