Fans complained that Lizzo’s latest song used a slur against people with disabilities, so she changed the lyrics.
Grrrls came out last week. In the first verse, there was an insulting word for cerebral palsy, which is also called spastic diplegia.
The star took the criticism to heart and, on Monday night, released a new version that didn’t have the harmful word.
Instead of the original lyrics, “hold me back” is now in the version of Grrrls that was changed quickly.
Lizzo said the change was “the result of me listening and taking action.” Fans praised Lizzo for her quick reaction to their call to change the lyric.
Do you think Lizzo did the right thing by changing her lyric?
