Cape Town - We wouldn’t have expected it to go any other way.

Lizzo lashed out at trolls recently who had an issue with the dress she wore at a recent LA Lakers game.

The Truth Hurts singer was spotted flashing her butt cheeks in a thong as she twerked courtside at the Lakers vs Minnesota Timberwolves game in Los Angeles.

The moment was caught on camera and quickly went viral. But while some loved it, others didn’t and she faced a barrage of criticism for showing her bare booty to the audience.

Not one to keep quiet, she immediately shot back at her haters in a lengthy message on Instagram Live, saying they can go "kiss [her] ass" if they don’t like what they see", and the criticism has "no effect" on her.

"Laker Girls came out and they started dancing to Juice, and I just got so excited, and I wanted to show them how much I appreciate and support and love the fact that they wanted to do that for me, so I stood up and I danced, and I turned around and I shook my tonkle-kwa-kwa," she quipped. 

She then went on to say that what the haters say have "no stake in my life, no control over my life or my emotions". 

"I’m the happiest I’ve ever been. I’m surrounded by love. And I just wanna spread that love and also spread these cheeks.

"And you know, if you really, really don’t like my ass, you can kiss it, 'cause kissing it makes it go away, I promise."

Thundering ahead, she said, "I just want y’all to know, like, it doesn’t matter what goes on the Internet. Like, nothing really breaks my joy."
