  • Huddah addresses Yummy Mummy after her fat-shaming comments.
  • The socialite had referred to American singer Lizzo as fat terming the body type as unhealthy.

Socialite Huddah Monroe has apologized for her fatphobic comments that were aimed at American singer Lizzo.

Huddah was forced to make the apology after Vlogger Joan Munyi alias Yummy Mummy called her out while reviewing her lipstick line.

The Kenyan businesswoman based in Dubai admitted she was wrong over the comments and also blamed the media and netizens for amplifying the situation.

"I am truly sorry for asking inconsiderate questions on body types several years ago and apologize to anyone I hurt... But thanks to that, I used that experience to grow, helping others to understand how some statements are completely unacceptable as you never know who you hurt here on social media,” she said.

Huddah called out

Joan shared a PR package of Huddah Lippies she had received from the socialite's company. Yummy Mummy expressed her dislike for Huddah's comments adding that she loved her beauty line.

"PR package from a brand I love at the same time. Love coz the products are amazing. One of the best affordable local makeup available. Hate coz Huddah openly fat shames and said she doesn't care if fat people never use her products, in her words we should all go to the gym and lose some weight," she said.

KOT called out Huddah for reposting a naked picture of American singer Lizzo on Instagram calling her obese.

“If you are fat you are fat if you are skinny you are skinny! Stop lying to yourselves It’s criminal to call people fat but its okay to tell people they are skinny? Fat is unhealthy. So many skinny people are unhealthy too. I’m unfit, as skinny as I am, I call that spade a spade. Ati thick, are you porridge? Let's promote healthy living,” Huddah had shared while criticizing Lizzo.

She further claimed not to care whether Kenyans bought her products or not adding that the cosmetic business wasn't the only means of earning to her.
