What did Lizzo say?

The singer has been accused of using offensive language in the first verse of her latest song.

It’s like, “Hold my bag, b**h (girl)/Hold my bag/You see that shit? I’m a sp**z/I’m about to knock somebody out (girl).”

Fans have criticized the musician’s choice of words, particularly her use of the term “sp*zz”.

Why are people angry at their lyrics?

Her fans and the online community blamed her label, management, and publishers for the offensive language.

Although the song was intended to be uplifting, it has sparked debate about how artists use ableism terms.

The word “sp*zz” is a swear word often used to describe someone who suffers from neurological disabilities.

According to Sports Keeda, spasticity is a medical term used to describe spasms related to high muscle tone.

According to the outlet, high muscle tone is a condition afflicted by people with disabilities who live with excessive stiffness.

Medical professionals call this spasticity and it is common in people with cerebral palsy.

According to The Mighty, over 77 percent of people with cerebral palsy have spastic muscles.

This causes people to contract their muscles. It can also lead to reduced mobility and muscle twitching.

But the word “sp*zz” can also be used to describe people who are awkward, excitable, and uncool.

Now advocates for people with autism, cerebral palsy and other issues are holding the singer to account.

Some on the internet are calling for the song to be removed and re-released without insults.

“Ugh the normally brilliant @lizzo apparently used a disabled slur in her new song,” wrote one follower on Twitter.

“It hurts to see someone so body positive that they choose not to include disabled bodies. I really hope she takes the education on board, apologizes and removes the word. It’s 2022.”

“I’ve seen a few comments online about terminating Lizzo and that’s not what we want – we want to enlighten them and have them change the word,” wrote another.

Lizzo has not responded to the criticism.
