Lizzo believes cancellation culture is widely adopted & ‘abused’


Opinion on cancellation culture has changed a lot over the past few years, and Lizzo recently took to social media to share her thoughts on the topic.

Lizzo says cancel culture has become ‘in the wrong direction’: ‘I hope we can get rid of this’

The “Truth Hurts” singer’s comment is made Twitter Friday morning, and Lizzo began by bluntly expressing that “the culture of cancellation is appropriation.”

“This may be a random moment to say this but that’s to my heart.. cultural destruction is appropriation.”

She went on to explain that, while the cancel culture used to be a useful tool used by “really disadvantaged people,” it has deviated from its foundation.

“There was real outrage from really marginalized people and now it’s become fashionable, abused and misdirected.”

Lizzo concluded her reflection by noting, “I hope we can put an end to this and focus our outrage on the real issues.”

The artist certainly won’t say much on the matter, however, as—just twenty minutes later—she tweeted about Anetra’s recent talent show on Facebook. Ru Paul’s Drag Race. We admire the queen who can multi-task early in the morning!

Many Twitter users see Lizzo’s point of view, while others are confused

After Lizzo’s tweet, many fans became interested in the issue. Some sided with her and noted that, while the cancellation was initially about accountability, it was “exploited”.

How to cancel the culture that promotes viral signaling is also shown.

However, others were largely put off by the whole sentiment. In fact, one user said that — while Lizzo was “not even wrong” — her statement “sounds like AI-generated discourse.”

Other tweets found the prospect of a “cancellation” culture to be humorous.

This sentiment has been shared by several users.

However, despite that, Lizzo’s statement resonated with many, and some even shared that the cancel culture was “co-opted by people who just wanted to bully”.

The singer also recently drew attention to an ‘epidemic’ on social networks

This online discussion comes just days after Lizzo spoke about another issue related to social media.

Last week, Lizzo tweeted that “we need to talk about the pandemic believing in anything and everything you see on social media.”

This statement has received a lot of support, with most agreeing that people need to be adamant about cross-checking information.

Do you agree with Lizzo’s statement?
