Lizzo says she's changing the lyrics of "Grrrls" following criticism the song contains an "ableist slur."
On the song, which is part of Lizzo's upcoming album "Special," the word "spaz" is used as a slur against people with disabilities.
She said on Instagram that she does not support derogatory language in her new song, "GRRRLS."
I understand the power of words (whether intentionally or unintentionally) as a fat black woman in America.
There's a new version of GRRRLS with lyric changes."
Spastic people have problems controlling their muscles, especially their arms and legs.
Now, most people refer to this disability as cerebral palsy.
Cerebral palsy is characterized by limb and trunk floppiness, unsteady walking, and involuntary movements.
Spastic Diplegia describes my disability (unrelenting leg pain caused by cerebral palsy). I dislike your latest song.
S--z is an ableist slur. It doesn't mean freaked out or crazy.
