P.K. Subban strongly criticized for his on-air remarks against singer Lizzo

Do you know the singer Lizzo? We’re talking about a famous American singer who is overweight.

The reason I’m bringing it up this morning is that P.K. Subban was in the news last night on ESPN when he made a reference to the singer. And not for the right reasons.

Asked what the Maple Leafs need to do to beat the Panthers in the series, Subban said the guys need to put on their work boots.

He said this by mentioning that the players had topack a lunch, which means, in the jargon, work hard. He even added the nuance on his Twitter account.

The problem? He didn’t say it like that.

To demonstrate how hard the club was going to have to work to win, he mentioned that the “lunch” he was referring to was going to have to be Lizzo-sized. He clearly meant… ah well, you get the idea.

I don’t think I need to tell you that in 2023, comments like these don’t go unmentioned.

Subban’s comments have been making the rounds on the web, and a simple search of the words “Subban” and “Lizzo” on Twitter shows that the former Canadiens player has offended a lot of people.

Many are calling for him to lose his job over his grossophobic comments. Others, without asking, expect him to get a slap on the wrist for his comments.

On the other hand, some people find it funny, mention that it’s not what he said, or call the offended people soft. Yes, Subban did start a debate with all that.
