Hitmaker Lizzo changed lyrics for her already released song ‘GRRRLS’!
This was brought up by the fans pointing an ableist slur in the song that might offend the ‘deemed’ disabled people.
The song was previously released four days ago.
“Hold my bag, b***h, hold my bag Do you see this s**t? I’ma sp**z.” ,the lyrics went.
Discussion surfaced on twitter with one user even explaining why the term is derogatory to people considered “disabled” on societal standards.
“Let me make one thing clear: I never want to promote derogatory language.
The artist went on to Instagram.
“As a fat Black woman in America, I’ve had many hurtful words used against me so I overstand the power words can have.”
Lizzo has given us a lot of hits like Truth Hurts, Good as Hell, Juice along with a recent hit, About Damn Time!
Aside that, she is also an advocate for plus sized women helping them embrace themselves and be happy the way they are.
Her new album Special is dropping this July 15.
