Lizzo Says Cancel Culture Is Appropriation, misused and misdirected
On a Sunday, Lizzo took time to voice her displeasure with cancel culture.
In a tweet sent out on a Sunday, Lizzo wrote, “This may be a random time to say this but it’s on my heart.. cancel culture is appropriation,”
“There was real outrage from truly marginalized people and now it’s become trendy, misused and misdirected,”
The rapper said, “I hope we can phase out of this & focus our outrage on the real problems.”
The “About Damn Time” singer had turned to social media only a few days prior to stop the “tired” “discourse around bodies.”
“I’ve seen comments go from, ‘Oh my gosh, I liked you when you were thick. Why did you lose weight?’ ‘Oh my gosh, why did you get a BBL? I liked your body before.’ ‘Oh my gosh, you’re so big. You need to lose weight but for your health’ to ‘Oh my gosh, you’re so little. You need to get a– or titties or something.’ ‘Oh my gosh, why did she get all that work done? It’s too much work,’” she remarked in a TikTok video on Friday.
Her next question was, “Are we OK? Do you see the delusion? Do you realise that artists are not here to fit into your beauty standards? Artists are here to make art. And this body is art. I’mma do whatever I want with this body. I wish that comments costed y’all money so we could see how much time we are f—ing wasting on the wrong thing. Can we leave that s— back there please?”
