Simply as preface: We are able to in all probability add this cancel occasion to all the opposite foolish cancel events that contain petty followers making a difficulty out of a non-issue. Should you’re questioning what #LizzoIsOverParty is about, let’s unpack it, we could?
So, why is Lizzo cancelled?
A clip of Lizzo and Harry Types goes round (it appears to be from January) and it reveals Lizzo and Harry taking part in off of one another. What’s angering some individuals is that Lizzo pretends to seize Harry’s butt. Persons are “calling out” Lizzo for sexualizing Harry in addition to her “non-consensual” habits, however for those who watch the clip, you will see that Harry pretends to seize her proper again. Mainly, the routine was most definitely rehearsed (as most performances are, as “candid” as they’re made to appear), however nonetheless, there’s drama.
Here is the clip in query:
There’s additionally this video that folks have an issue with as a result of they assume Lizzo consuming a popsicle whereas jamming out to Harry is “predatory.”
Fortunately, most of Twitter has come to Lizzo’s protection (not that she wants it or in all probability is even conscious of the nonsense that is unfolding, as a result of Lizzo has method higher issues to do). Most followers are stating that Lizzo hate is coming from a spot of racism and misogyny. “Cease shaming black and large girls for speaking about intercourse,” one Twitter person argued.
Lizzo has been very outspoken about her sexuality, which is truthfully why we love her a lot. Again in February, Lizzo joked that she “collaborated” with Harry Types (i.e. slept with him). However in actuality, Lizzo made it clear she simply stans Harry, and it is a identified indisputable fact that he feels the identical method about her — the 2 are good, flirty buddies.

The underside line? Lizzo and Harry are good buddies, and have been collaborating for fairly a while, and it is harmful to imagine that Lizzo’s intentions are predatory as a result of the actual fact is that, if it had been Taylor Swift making the identical jokes, we would not be coping with this type of blowback from the Harry Types/One Course neighborhood. “pleasant reminder that he and lizzo are buddies and y’all simply hate black girls. i simply wanna know if y’all had this power when camille was moaning his identify on ig or if it solely applies to black girls,” a Twitter person argued.
Yup, that is the essential summation of the “LizzoIsOverParty.” Be at liberty to stroll away from the web for awhile. Blast some “Fact Hurts” and bear in mind: Lizzo is a QUEEN.
