Lizzo Says ‘Cancel Culture Is Appropriation’

Lizzo took a moment on a Sunday morning to share her concerns about cancellation culture.

“This may be a random time to say this but it’s close to my heart.. cancel culture is appropriation,” Lizzo tweeted on Sunday (January 8).

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

Lizzo continued: “I hope we can phase this out and focus our outrage on the real issues.”

Days before, the “About Damn Time” singer had taken to social media to shut down the “tired” “discourse around bodies.”

“I’ve seen comments go from, ‘Oh my god, I liked you when you were fat. Why did you lose weight?’ ‘Oh my god, why did you get a BBL? I liked your body before’. ‘Oh my god, you’re so big. You need to lose weight, but for your health’ to ‘Oh my god, you’re so small. You must have one – or breasts or something.’ ‘Oh my God, why did she get all that work done? It’s too much work,'” she said in a TikTok video Friday.

She continued: “Are we okay? Can you see the delusion? Do you realize that artists are not here to fit your standards of beauty? Artists are here to make art. And this body is art. I have to do what I want with this body I wish comments would cost you all money so we could see how much time we are wasting on the wrong thing Can we leave it back there?
