In response to the claims he’s fatphobic, Diddy said:
There’s one thing I want to make clear. My queen, my sister Lizzo when I stopped the music it’s because it had a lot of curses in there. Not because she was twerking. She’s one of the best twerkers in the world. OK, let’s keep that clear.
It wasn’t about twerking, you’re allowed to twerk on Easter. It was about, it was a lot cursing in the record and I don’t need child services knocking on my door right now. You understand. That’s why we stopped the record. Lizzo we love you. Everybody stop looking for the negative.
Then, in an Instagram Live video with rapper Tory Lanez, he said:
Diddy did not stop Lizzo from twerking last night.
Lizzo chimed in:
The music was explicit. He didn’t want songs about “suck my dick” etc being played around children.
