‘Truth Hurts’ is a lesson Lizzo may be learning the hard way as a result of a perceived diss launched in the direction of Rap hitmakers Future and Swae Lee.
Taking to social media, the burgeoning diva stated:
“Sometimes I get pissed that there are people who call future & swae lee rappers and still question whether or not I belong in the rap conversation…,” she wrote. “But then I remember I have the #4 song in the country, laugh, go back to my dream job and log off.”
Needless to say, the “shade grenade” set off a firestorm of comments in defense of the emcees. Once the fire got too hot, Lizzo deleted the original message and later attempted to clarify her statements. Read it all inside:
After comments like these bombarded her Twitter handle:
Lizzo quickly deleted the tweet after seeing the backlash. “I forgot that the internet is not the place for my emotions anymore —-♀️ I love everybody goodnight,” she wrote in response.
She then took it a step further by making it very clear original her tweet wasn’t intended as a diss toward Swae Lee and Future.
“I LOVE future & swae bruhhhhhh… the point went straight over y’alls heads…I’m just saying we all share a similar rap sing style…,” Lizzo tweeted, adding that people should listen to Swae’s “Sunflower” and Future’s “The Wizrd.” [source]
