Lizzo was dragged on social media this past weekend after being accused of using an ableist term “spazz” in her new song “Grrls.” The word “spazz” is a word that people with disabilities in the UK deem as offensive.
People reacted to Lizzo using the term, with one person tweeting, “I’m disappointed in
@lizzo for using the word 'sp@z' in her new song “Grrrls”. There’s no excuse for using an ableist insult in a song in 2022. As someone who champions women, plus size people and others whom society treats poorly, Lizzo preaches inclusivity and should do better.”
