Kathy Hilton Going through Backlash for Complicated Lizzo With “Valuable”

A different Twitter user wrote, “Precious isn’t even a real person and this was not funny,” while another stated, “Now, I know Kathy Hilton doesn’t know much, but how the hell did she manage to confuse Lizzo with Gabourey Sidibe? That certainly plays into the ‘we all look alike to them’ trope.”

Others came to Kathy’s defense, arguing that she didn’t know who Ryan Reynolds or Justin Timberlake were either while playing the game. That, and the fact that Kathy once mistook RHOBH co-star Garcelle Beauvais for her own sister, Kyle Richards. “if you watch the show,” one tweet read, “you know kathy can barely see and sometimes cannot even recognize her own staff.” 

Acknowledging this point, another person tweeted, “She does mistake people a lot, but saying Precious is something very insidious. It’s not just linking Lizzo to a fat black person solely on her weight, but erasing Gabourey’s identity.”
