Lizzo Says She’s Tired of “Being Dragged” Online: “I Quit”

Last year, Lizzo was accused by her backup dancers of sexual harassment and fostering a hostile work environment. The singer denied the allegations, calling them “false” and “too outrageous not to be addressed.” Now, after months of criticism, she shared a statement on Instagram insinuating she may be quitting music.

“I’m getting tired of putting up with being dragged by everyone in my life and on the internet,” Lizzo wrote. “All I want is to make music and make people happy and help the world be a little better than how I found it. But I’m starting to feel like the world doesn’t want me in it. I’m constantly up against lies being told about me for clout & views… being the butt of the joke every single time because of how I look… my character being picked apart by people who don’t know me and disrespecting my name.”

She added: “I didn’t sign up for this shit — I QUIT.”

The message comes nearly two months after a judge denied Lizzo’s motion to dismiss the lawsuits filed by three of her former dancers.

Earlier this month, Lizzo posted a message telling fans she is “writing some of the best music and I’m so excited for y’all to hear. I’m almost ready to be a normal human again … to be outside … to love and trust people … to try and make new friends … to sing and talk about my pain and joy. Just give me a lil more time. Thank u for the patience, and to the ones who unfollowed, thank u too, cus now I know where we stand.”
