Lizzo Says Cancel Culture Has Become ‘Trendy, Misused, and Misdirected’

This previous weekend, Lizzo took to Twitter to share her ideas on cancel tradition.

As you already know, the singer is just not one to maintain quiet on particular matters.

Most not too long ago, the “About Damn Time” singer mentioned that cancel tradition has turn out to be “trendy” and takes away from extra critical points.

“This may be a random time to say this, but it’s on my heart … cancel culture is appropriation,” she tweeted.  “There was real outrage from truly marginalized people, and now it’s become trendy, misused, and misdirected.”

She continued, “I hope we can phase out of this & focus our outrage on the real problems.”

Final summer time, Lizzo confronted backlash after utilizing the insensitive time period “sp-z” in her music “Grrrls.”

A number of incapacity advocates on social media attacked the singer for utilizing the slang time period which suggests “going crazy” and “freaking out,” a extremely offensive time period within the UK towards these with cerebral palsy.

“It’s been brought to my attention that there is a harmful word in my song ‘GRRRLS,’” she mentioned on the time.  “Let me make one thing clear: I never want to promote the derogatory language.  As a fat black woman in America, I’ve had many hurtful words used against me, so I understand the power words can have (whether intentionally or, in my case, unintentionally).”

She continued, “I’m proud to say there’s a new version of girls with a lyric change.  This is the result of me listening and taking action.  As an influential artist, I’m dedicated to being part of the challenge change I’ve been waiting to see in the world.”
