Lizzo changes ‘Ablist Slur’ song after cancellation of Culture Outrage

After being dragged down by disability advocates on social media on Monday, Lizzo has reacted to her use of an “able” song.

His statement comes after social media users nearly canceled him for the song: “Do you see this s–t? I’m a sp-z.”

“It has been brought to my attention that there are [sic] There’s a Harmful Word in My Song ‘GRRRLS’, “Truth Hurts” lyricist wrote on twitter,

“Let me make one thing clear: I never want to promote abusive language. As a fat black woman in America, many hurtful words have been used against me, so I understand that power words can be (whether intentionally or in my case, unintentional.)

“I am proud to say that the song is a new version of Girls with Change. It is the result of my listening and taking action,” she continued. “As an influential artist, I challenge myself to be a part of that change. Dedicated to what I have been waiting for in the world.”

The word “sp-z” is a generic American colloquialism for “spastic”, meaning something more offensive in the UK, as Lizzo learned the hardest way.

In the US, “sp-z” is commonly used as slang to indicate “go crazy” or “get out”.

However, in the UK, the term is considered an overly offensive adjective intended to disparage people living with cerebral palsy – a congenital disorder of movement, muscle tone or posture due to abnormal brain development during pregnancy.

Earlier in the day, after fans deemed it “About Damn Time”, the curvy singer opted for a different song.

“Lizzo’s use of competent slurs is completely irresponsible, coming from someone with Tourette syndrome. To rectify the matter, she would have to make up in the music video, then eat a cheese sandwich.” One Twitter user said, “This is the only way she will receive my personal forgiveness,”

“Hey @lizzo my disability cerebral palsy is literally classified as spastic diplegia (where spastic refers to painful stiffness in my legs) Your new song makes me very angry + sad. ‘sp-z’ Doesn’t mean crazy or insane.” Another blaster wrote. “It’s a competent abuse. It’s 2022. Do better.”

“GRRRLS” will appear on the singer’s upcoming album “Special” on July 15.
