Lizzo is sending a really clear message — she loves and helps “Black fats girls” — giving them a highlight as she accepted a humanitarian award.

As we reported, Lizzo’s just lately been focused in two separate lawsuits, accusing her of permitting racial harassment, sexual harassment and extra on her tour. Whereas she did not particularly point out the lawsuits, Lizzo gave a speech that actually addressed them.
Lizzo promised she’d proceed to, “Amplify the voices of marginalized individuals as a result of I’ve a microphone and I understand how to make use of it.” Whereas stating she is going to, “Proceed to placed on and symbolize and create secure areas for Black fats girls, as a result of that’s what the fuck I do.”

A rep for the singer known as the lawyer who filed the lawsuit and shamed them for, “recruiting somebody to file a bogus, absurd publicity-stunt lawsuit who, look forward to it, by no means really met and even spoke with Lizzo. We can pay this as a lot consideration because it deserves. None.”
