Because of negative criticisms and the cancel culture, most people may find social media to be a toxic environment. Lizzo recently spoke out on the subject at random, and many fans agreed with her.

The musician stated on her official Twitter account that it was a random time to say it, but she wanted to let it out because it was in her heart.

She continued:

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

The “Rumors” singer ended her post by expressing her desire for people to “phase out” the drama and focus their outrage on “the real problems.”

Many fans immediately took to the comment section to agree with her remarks after she shared her tweet.

One wrote:

“That’s a really great take. I hadn’t thought to look at it like that. And it’s very, very true. The power has gone out of it, and that’s a real loss for marginalized peoples.”

Another one wrote:

“Highly agreed. Crazy to live in a world where people who are extremely far from perfect themselves can be so unforgiving.”

Lizzo has not provided more context for her recent post.

The tweet above isn’t the first time Lizzo has expressed her personal feelings about other people this week; she previously used TikTok to respond to those who criticize other people’s bodies.

The 28-year-old pop star, who was wearing a bikini and a high ponytail while enjoying herself at the beach, shared a video of herself, saying the body discourse is “officially tired.”

She then mentioned that there have been several comments from online users criticizing various types of bodies, such as:

“Why did you lose weight?’ ‘Oh my gosh, why did you get a BBL? I liked your body before.’ ‘Oh my gosh, you’re so big. You need to lose weight but for your health.'”

According to the “Special” songstress, artists should not please others or conform to beauty standards because their sole purpose is to share their craft and art with the world.

In other news, the pop star will embark on a tour this year, which will begin on February 17 at the Oslo Spektrum in Oslo, Norway.
