Lizzo Sees Cancel Culture as Appropriation

Lizzo recently took to Twitter to share her thoughts on cancel culture. “This may be a random time to say this but it’s on my heart.. cancel culture is appropriation,” the singer tweeted.

“There was real outrage from truly marginalized people and now it’s become trendy, misused and misdirected,” Lizzo wrote.

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

A few days prior to this, the ‘About Damn Time’ singer took to social media to put an end to the “tired” “discourse around bodies.”

In a TikTok video she said,  “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 ti****s or something.’ ‘Oh my gosh, why did she get all that work done? It’s too much work”

She continued, “Are we OK? Do you see the delusion? Do you realize 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?”
