Lizzo headlined Summerfest in Milwaukee last Thursday. Soon after her set she went to social media and shared that her stylist and hairstylist was attacked by the security at the venue.
Summerfest responded saying:
“Lizzo gave an incredible performance which she now feels is tarnished by events which occurred during the performance. We do not tolerate racism in uniform. We will conduct a thorough investigation. While there may be challenges during a performance, we expect those challenges to be handled professionally and respectfully. if thosestandards were not met, we will take appropriate action.”
Lizzo asked fans to send her any footage they may have gotten of the incident. Lizzo believes she saw her team getting “slapped” and “manhandled.”
She says “That was the best show ever but I feel like I can’t even celebrate cuz RACISM don’t matter if you a headliner….SMH”
