Lizo Starting the new year with a list of grievances about the state of social media — “cancel culture” has become unrecognizable.
The singer has been making a lot of comments lately about how she looks completely stupid when people pay attention online — especially when it’s related to her. On Sunday, she had a new thought … namely, that cancellation culture itself is appropriation.
This may be a random time to say this but it is in my heart.. Cancellation culture is appropriation.
There was real outrage from people who were really marginalized, and now it’s trendy, misused and misdirected.
I hope we can step out of this and focus our anger on the real problems.

Here’s how Lizzo puts it … “There was real outrage from marginalized people, and now it’s become trendy, misused and misdirected.” He adds, “I hope we can step out of this and focus our anger on the real problems.” In the comments, many seem to agree.
His theory of null culture is the latest idea he has voiced on this issue. Earlier this week, he addressed the social media conversation at large — suggesting that users (probably Twitter people) do a better job of filtering fact from fiction before jumping to conclusions.
We need to talk about the epidemic of believing anything you see on social media…

This goes beyond the full-scale debates about her figure, BTW – it’s a constant topic of conversation. Now, it seems like talking about Lizzo’s music, and what groups he may or may not be catering to … not to mention opinions in his race.
Speaking of fat-shaming, Lizzo is at it again. Little by little she gets what Adele experienced when she lost a significant amount of weight. And championing body positivity. Actually, a lose-lose scenario.

Sure, some might say it’s better to tune out all this noise and go about your business — but Lizo never bit her tongue. Instead, she speaks her mind.
Something tells me she’ll call it a sight. But in this particular view of repeal culture being passed down improperly … it’s certainly an interesting point of contention.
