Diddy shut down Lizzo‘s twerking, after letting Draya Michele twerk her body on his Instagram Live, and received a ton of backlash for it.
“when lizzo was twerking it’s not ‘family friendly’ but when a skinny girl does it, it’s all fun & games????,” one Twitter user wrote.
The Shade Room captured both moments, and you can watch embedded in this post.
Later, Diddy took to his Instagram Story to explain, saying,
“There’s one thing that I want to make clear. My queen, my sister Lizzo, when I stopped the music it was ’cause it had a lot of curses in there, not ’cause she was twerking. She’s one of the best twerkers in the world, okay? Let’s keep that clear. It wasn’t about twerking. You’re allowed to twerk on Easter. There was a lot of cursing in the record. And I don’t need child services knocking on my door right now, you understand? So that’s why I stopped the record. But Lizzo, we love you and everybody stop looking for the negative, look at the positive!” Diddy explained.
