Lizzo Calls Out ‘Bigoted’ Summerfest Security Guards For Attacking Her Team ‘They Slapped And Manhandled My Hairstylist, I’m Out For Blood’
Truth Hurts singer Lizzo had a few words for a handful of security guards she claims attacked her team. While she was a headliner at Milwaukee’s Summerfest, it’s safe to say that she feels that she and her team didn’t get the superstar treatment. Instead, Lizzo took to Twitter to not only bring the attention to light but ask for witnesses.
She wrote Thursday,
“DID ANYBODY GET FOOTAGE OF THE SECURITY GUARD THAT TACKLED AND ATTACKED MY TEAM @SUMMERFEST ?! THEY SLAPPED AND MANHANDLED MY HAIR STYLIST AND STYLIST AND IM OUT FOR BLOOD”
She added that she couldn’t even enjoy what she described as “the best show ever” because of her team’s run-in with security guards.
“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 @Summerfest please send footage”
She was still able to post one of the best moments of the night. She wrote,
“Nothin like 10,000people screaming I WILL NEVA EVA EVA EVA E-VA BE YO SIDECHICK”

She went on to salute the audience before calling out the security guards involved.
“Tonight was beautiful. You are beautiful. But the struggle ain’t over. Racism and bigotry don’t care if you’re a headliner. Thank you @summerfest. We will be filing a complaint against that bigoted “security” guard and I hope you’ll be cooperative in seeking justice. xoxo”
She also said Summerfest has since responded and is investigating the incident.
Jennifer Lopez is scheduled to perform at the same event on July 3.
