Roommates, many were surprised to see Jazmine Sullivan back on the scene showing off her amazing weight loss, unfortunately several online trolls refused to let her have her moment an attempted to body shame her instead. Jazmine clapped back at the online critics and explained the reasoning for her weight loss and also got them together.
Earlier this week, Jazmine Sullivan debuted a much slimmer figure than what fans are normally used to seeing, and while many of the comments about her appearance were positive, there were those who disrespectfully insinuated that Jazmine was sick and an illness was the reason for her weight loss.
Getting wind of the hurtful criticism, Jazmine Sullivan responded with the following message on her Instagram story:
“Last week, some people dragged me saying I look sickly,” Sullivan wrote in an Instagram Story. “I’m honestly a size 12. 180 pounds. There’s nothing skinny about me but my neck. I’m 5’8, however, so sometimes I photograph a lil learner than I am but I ain’t skinny and that was never the goal.”
She continued, adding that her weight loss journey was as a form of support for her mother who is currently battling cancer:
“My goal was to support my mother through her battle with cancer by going vegan with her and, in turn, it helped me as well. And I feel really good,” she explained. “I have a lot of things to work on in my journey and I’m not nearly the model for health and fitness…But I’m trying. And I’ll continue to do so with my momma! Bless y’all. Love y’all. Stop talking about people. Vote in November.”
Meanwhile, Jazmine is currently in the studio and hard at work on her new album.
