Lizzo Reissues Song with Updated Lyrics

Singer and songwriter Lizzo recently released a new track called “Grrrls.” However, the song quickly sparked controversy due to the inclusion of the word “spaz” in the lyrics. While “spaz” is commonly used in slang to describe random, flailing movements, it is also recognized as an ableist slur targeting individuals with Cerebral Palsy.

Following the release of the song, disability advocate Hannah Diviney expressed her concerns on Twitter, pointing out the negative impact of using such language. Similarly, autism advocate Callum Stephen called out Lizzo for including an ableist insult in her song.

In response to the backlash, Lizzo decided to release an updated version of “Grrrls” with the controversial lyric replaced. She took to Twitter to address the issue, emphasizing that her intention was never to promote harmful language and that she was open to rectifying her mistake.

Lizzo made it clear in her statement that she is committed to avoiding derogatory language and acknowledges the impact hurtful words can have. She expressed her dedication to being an agent for positive change and promoting inclusivity through her influential platform.
