Lizzo’s Big Grrrls Crew Speaks Out In Support Of The Singer Amid A Lawsuit By Former Dancers:
Lizzo’s Big Grrrls dance crew’s official Instagram page shared a letter in favor of the singer after three former dancers filed a lawsuit against her.
The Special Tour, which had been going on for almost a year, ended on July 30. The letter praised Lizzo for “shattering limits and opening the door for the Big Grrrl as well as Big Boiii Dancers to perform what we love.”
“You’ve given us a place where we can combine our passions with a cause! Not just for us, but also for women and everyone else who breaks down obstacles,” the letter said.
On Instagram, Dancers Said They Were Proud To Share Their Performances Alongside Such Great Talent:
“The Special Tour was the best time of our lives. “It has been such an honor to be able to share stage alongside such amazing skills,” the dancers penned on Instagram.
“Being committed to character as well as culture over every action as well as moment was one of the best lessons we could have learned and one of the best gifts we could have asked for.”
The dancers also thanked Lizzo for making sure that the show included people from different backgrounds by including them.
The dancers wrote, “Thank you to Lizzo for breaking down barriers and opening the door for the Big Grrrl as well as Big Boi dancers to pursue what we love.”
The Big Grrrls Crew Says That Lizzo Gave Them A Place Where They Can Combine Their Desire With A Goal:
“You’ve given us a place where we can combine our passions with a cause! Not just for us, but also for women and everyone else who breaks down walls.”
The “About Damn Time” singer is being sued through a group of her former dances for putting them under too much pressure and making fun of their weight, so the dancers’ praise comes at an interesting time.
Plaintiffs Crystal Williams, Arianna Davis, as well as Noelle Rodriguez said in the lawsuit, which was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, that they were sexually, racially, and religiously harassed, assaulted, put in jail for no reason, and treated unfairly because of their disabilities, among other things.
Lizoo Rejected All Of The Claims In An Instagram Post On August 3:
Within an Instagram post upon August 3, Lizzo rejected the claims, calling them “sensationalized stories.” The singer said that she usually doesn’t respond to “false allegations,” but that “these are as unbelievable as they may sound as well as too outrageous rather than to be addressed.”
Lizzo added, “I know what it’s like to be shamed about my body every day, and I would never criticize or fire someone because of their weight.”
Lizzo and the Big Grrrl dancers first got to be in the spotlight together in her Amazon series “Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls,” which was about Lizzo’s search for backup dancers for her world tour.
Early This Month, Three Former Dancers Filed A Lawsuit Against Lizzo For Sexual Harassment:
In September 2022, the reality competition show won the award for best competition at the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards.
After the show won, Lizzo went on X, which used to be called Twitter, to say that the win was for “the big girls who now live within a world” where they are treated with dignity and not “the punchline” of a fat insult.
This month, three of Lizzo’s former dancers launched a claim against her, saying that she sexually harassed them and made their workplace unsafe. They say that this happened between 2021 and 2023.
Sophia Nahli Allison Additionally Stated That Lizzo Had Treated Her Badly A Few Years Ago:
The claimants are being accused because they took participating in a reality TV show contest to become one of Lizzo’s dancers during her shows and tours.
Sophia Nahli Allison, a director who stated she worked alongside Lizzo a few years ago, said that the pop star “treated her with such disrespect” that she quit the job shortly after only approximately two weeks.
Within a statement, Lizzo said that the lawsuit’s claims were false. Lizzo said, “These past few hours have been heartbreakingly hard and very disappointing.” “People have asked me about my work ethic, values, and respect.
Beyoncé And Grimes Have Also Said They Stand Behind Lizzo:
People have said bad things about me. Usually, I don’t react to fake accusations, yet these are as crazy as they sound as well as too ridiculous to ignore.” Before the Big Grrrls’ statement on Thursday, Beyoncé and Grimes additionally stated that they were there for Lizzo.
“The Special Tour was the best time of our lives. The letter said, “It has been such an honor to share the stage with this amazing talent.”
“Being committed to character as well as culture over every action as well as moment has been among the best lessons we could have learned and one of the best gifts we could have asked for.”
