The "South Park" Ozempic Episode Made Jokes About Lizzo — Here's How She Responded

This post contains discussion of body image issues.

So, over the weekend a new South Park special premiered on Paramount+. It's called South Park: The End of Obesity, and you can watch the trailer below:

As you might expect from the title and content of the trailer, the installment takes aim at the use of drugs like Ozempic and Mounjaro for weight-loss purposes — and, apparently, one of the episode's comedic targets is Lizzo.

Without going too far into it: The episode uses Lizzo's name as a name for a weight-loss drug that's prescribed to people who can't afford drugs like Ozempic.

So, naturally, Lizzo became aware of the show using her name in such a fashion — and she shared a TikTok of her reaction as she watched a clip from the special.

Obviously, South Park's jokes about Lizzo were pretty much as unflattering as it gets. Despite it all, though, her initial reaction to the clip suggested that she wasn't taking things too seriously.

“That’s crazy. I just feel like, damn, I’m really that bitch,” she said.

“I really showed the world how to love yourself and not give a fuck to the point where these men in Colorado know who the fuck I am and put it on their cartoon that’s been around for 25 years.”
