Lizzo who is currently facing a sexual harassment lawsuit from her former backup dancers shared an Instagram clip of herself twerking on Sunday whilst rocking a blue floral bikini.
In the clip, the star was shaking her massive butt to Bongos, a new song by Cardi B featuring Megan Thee Stallion. She captioned the video “My back sounds like a bongoooooooo.”
Instead of fans praising her dance moves, the singer was in for a huge shock as several fans blasted her for her risqué twerking video. The risqué video comes after Lizzo was accused of sexual harassment by three former backup dancers which led to a lawsuit.

One fan blasted her saying, “Are we really just going to go on like she didn’t pressure her team into sexual acts?” Another wrote, “Exactly why I’m unfollowing her now as we speak. So unnecessary.”
The third critic wrote, “Really wish you would address what’s going on with some seriousness.” “We all looked up to you and need you to show us that your words are true.” Although Lizzo spoke about the lawsuit earlier last month calling the claims made by her 3 former dancers — Crystal Williams, Arianna Davis and Noelle Rodriguez — “outrageous.”
“My work ethic, morals and respectfulness have been questioned. My character has been criticized,” she wrote in a statement posted to Instagram at the time. “Usually I choose not to respond to false allegations but these are as unbelievable as they sound and too outrageous to not be addressed.”
It seems that there’s an element of truth in what the dancers are saying as several fans asked her to apologize. In fact, another critic called Lizzo out to apologize for the incidents. “Still waiting on that apology,” one person posted Sunday.
Unlike several critics, few followers supported her with one saying, “Let that woman live her life.”“Keep [them] mad lizzo ignore and keep doing you like you supposed to do,” another wrote. This is not the first time, the star has made the news over her nonchalant attitude to the suit.
Instead, she let her legal team do their thing which is countersuing the dancers which their lawyer has called an “insidious attempt at intimidation,” in a statement to Page Six on August, 25.
Then continued, “The scare tactics, bullying and victim shaming coming from Lizzo team are exactly the behaviour employees face in the entertainment industry who feel they have no choice but to ‘suck it up’ for access and success.”
