Lizzo slams rental property owner who kicked out her since she could potentially 'hurt him'

African American singer Lizzo recently experienced extensive amounts of racism at the hands of a rental property owner who threatened to call the police on her and her friends.

In an attempt to call out the owner, Lizzo took to her Instagram and shared a video of herself twerking by the pool in a red bikini cover-up.

She wrote a caption scoffing at her property owner: "This is for the man that kicked me out of my 7-day rental 3 days early yesterday. This is for mocking the way that I dance and for using Instagram footage of me and my 6 black homegirls to say that we could 'hurt him' and threaten to call the police.”

She further wrote, "I know you're watching my page 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."

Previously, Lizzo had shared a video of her and her girls, lounging around in their bathing suits under the sun with a caption that read, “Just a group of melanated girls soaking up the sun. No rhyme or reason. (We all took the responsibility to get [COVID-19] tests and luckily we’re all negative. Please be safe and wear your masks.”
