Dulce Sloan Multiple Tweets and Posts About Her Weight

Dulce Sloan is one of the most forthcoming comedians, and her stand-up sets are hilarious.

With a successful career, she has amassed quite the public attention and not always the good kind. People have been making constant remarks about her appearance and obesity.

To shut the same people down, the comedian has tweeted multiple times regarding her weight and weight loss efforts.

In a Facebook status, Sloan admitted, in all honesty, “You’ll not meet a single fat person in the world who has not, at some point, either tried losing weight or been told to lose weight.”

She also said she had read 32 diet books in her life and that she knew more about how to lose weight than most others.

Sloan spoke openly in 2018 that she was “curvy, fat, plus-sized, full-figured, and thick.” To the dissatisfaction of internet trolls, she affirmed that she was okay with being all of those things.

“If calling me fat is the only response you have to be having an opinion you don’t like, you’re an idiot,” she said.

Sloan has always opened up about her body and doesn’t feel shame to say she is overweight.

Recently on January 2022, she tweeted, “And then he said I’m fat, so I should be glad ANY man is talking to me.”

Dulce Sloan Had No Interest In Telling Jokes

Initially, she had no desire to do comedy until she met Big Kenney, Quincy Bonds, and other Atlanta comedians. They told her she should be a comedian, which eventually changed her thought.

Fortunately, Kenney had a sketch comedy class while the comedian was free at the time. Furthermore, her mother encouraged her to join the class.

“I only got into comedy because a friend of mine worked at the Funny Farm, which was a comedy club in Atlanta,” Dulce Sloan said.

Sloan’s mother has been supportive her entire life. Her mother was a performer, whereas her uncle had been a singer since the early ’80s, so performing was in her family.

In addition, a few gigs at local Atlanta clubs helped sharpen her stand-up craft. Then her breakthrough StandUp NBC comedy showcase came in 2015 and pushed her journey to the next level.

Just two years later, she worked with Comedy Central on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah as a correspondent.
