Lizzo Says She Was Thrown Out of Vacation Rental Early Due to Racial Bias
Lizzo opened up about being forced to leave a rental house early, after allegedly being profiled by the property’s owner.
On Sunday, the singer clapped back at the man she says forced her and her friends to leave. She claims the homeowner ridiculed her for her dance moves and claimed she and her friends could “hurt him.”
“This is for the man that kicked me out of my seven-day rental three days early yesterday,” she captioned a clip of herself twerking in a red swimsuit. “This is for mocking the way that I dance and for using Instagram footage of me and my six black homegirls to say that we could ‘hurt him’ and threaten to call the police.”
“I know you’re watching my page,” she continued, “so I just want you to know you can’t stop this black girls’ shine. Thanks for kicking us out cus this house is better anyways. Xoxo 🖕🏾.”
Lizzo didn’t identify the rental homeowner or where she traveled for her girls’ trip, but she did clarify that everyone in her party got tested for COVID-19 beforehand.
“Just a group of melanated girls soaking up the sun. No rhyme or reason,” she wrote at the time, sharing footage of herself smiling with five of her pals. “(We all took the responsibility to get covid tests and luckily we’re all negative. Please be safe and wear your masks.”
