Lizzo Sued & Cancelled: From Fat-Shaming & Harassment to a Questionable Apology




Singer-songwriter Lizzo, is currently being sued by three of her former backup dancers for allegedly fat-shaming them.


YES, you heard that right. Lizzo, the Queen and face of fat-acceptance and body positivity is currently being sued for fat-shaming.


Specific claims made against Lizzo and her dance captain Shirlene Quigley in a lawsuit filed by her ex-dancers:



  • Accused of overworking dancers and making the group re-audition in an ‘’excruciating’’ 12-hour rehearsal. Those she was ‘’dissatisfied with’’ would be fired and sent home.
  • Accused of firing a dancer for challenging her claim that the group was drinking before performances.
  • Accused of making a ‘’thinly-veiled’’ comment relating to a dancer’s weight-gain and later firing her for recording a meeting while suffering an eye condition.
  • Accused of coercing a dancer into touching a woman’s breast at a strip club despite the dancer opposing.
  • Accused of inviting her dancers to a nude cabaret bar without disclosing the specifics of the performance.
  • Accused of trying to convert dancers to her religion
  • Accused of scolding dancers for having premarital sex.
  • Accused of unwarrantedly discussing masturbation and sexual fantasies with the group.

‘’These sensationalized stories are coming from former employees who have already publicly admitted that they were told their behavior on tour was inappropriate and unprofessional.’’ claimed the singer on Instagram.


And just when you think things couldn’t possibly get any worse, did we mention Lizzo also got dumped by her boyfriend over the S.A. allegations?


Lizzo's troubles have been spiraling, as not only are more individuals stepping forward to shed light on her actions, but she's also grappling with the absence of support from her partner. This sense of betrayal has triggered a breakdown for Lizzo, with sources suggesting that the breakup's impact has surpassed even the emotional toll of the lawsuit.
