Lizzo Believes Cancel Culture Is Widely Appropriated & 'Misused'

Lizzo Believes Cancel Culture Is Widely Appropriated: ‘It’s Become Trendy, Misused & Misdirected’

Public opinion on cancel culture has shifted a lot in the past few years, and Lizzo recently took to social media to share her thoughts on the subject.

Lizzo Says Cancel Culture Has Become ‘Misdirected’: ‘I Hope We Can Phase Out Of This’

The “Truth Hurts” singer’s comments came through Twitter on Friday morning, and Lizzo started off by straight-up expressing that “cancel culture is appropriation.”

“This may be a random time to say this but it’s on my heart.. cancel culture is appropriation.”

She proceeded to explain that, while cancel culture was once a useful tool employed by “truly marginalized people,” it’s deviated from its foundations.

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

Lizzo wrapped up her thoughts by noting, “I hope we can phase out of this & focus our outrage on the real problems.”

The artist was sure to not harp on the matter, though, as—just twenty minutes later—she was tweeting about Anetra’s recent talent show performance on Ru Paul’s Drag Race. We stan queen who can multitask so early in the morning!

Many Twitter Users See Lizzo’s Point, While Others Were Perplexed

On the heels of Lizzo’s tweet, various fans began chiming in on the matter. Some sided with her and noted how, while cancellation was initially about accountability, it’s been “exploited.”

The way that cancel culture promotes virus signaling was also brought up.

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

Other tweeters found the prospect of “cancelling” cancel culture to be humorous.

This sentiment was shared by a number of users.

Regardless, though, Lizzo’s statement resonated with many, and some even shared that cancel culture has been “co-opted by people who just want to bully.”

The Singer Also Recently Called Attention To A Social Media ‘Epidemic’

This online discourse comes just a few days after Lizzo spoke on another issue relating to social media.

Last week, Lizzo tweeted that “we need to talk about the epidemic of believing any and everything y’all see on social media.”

This statement garnered a good amount of support, with most agreeing that people need to be adamant about cross-checking information.

Do you agree with Lizzo’s statement?
