Lizzo says music festival guard 'attacked' her team: ‘Racism and bigotry don’t care if you’re a headliner’

Lizzo might be one of the biggest stars in the music scene right now, but she tells fans that “racism and bigotry don’t care if you’re a headliner” after a venue’s security allegedly attacked her staff at a festival.

The “Truth Hurts” singer took to Twitter after her Summerfest performance on Thursday night to ask if anybody who attended the Milwaukee, Wis. music festival had footage of the security guard who she says “tackled and attacked my team.”

“They slapped and manhandled my hair stylist and stylist and Im [sic] out for blood,” she wrote in one tweet, before writing in another, “We will be filing a complaint against that bigoted ‘security’ guard.”

Summerfest quickly responded to the claims on its Twitter account, writing, “We do not tolerate racism in any form.” Through the account, the Summerfest team also assured that they will be conducting a thorough investigation in order to take appropriate action.

Representatives of the music festival didn’t immediately respond to Yahoo Lifestyle’s request for additional information or an update on that investigation. Lizzo, however, thanked fans for their support.

The singer provided an additional statement about the nature of the incident after some people questioned if it was actually racist.

Still, Lizzo said that it was “the best show ever,” although the incident kept her from properly celebrating.
