Lizzo Deletes Her Tweet Questioning Future & Swae Lee’s Legitimacy As “Rappers”
A day after insulting Swae Lee and Future
Certainly, all three individuals have done enough to warrant the designation, with the consensus being: Lizzo’s derision is based on gender bias, and understandably so.
On the other hand, she could have chosen a better specimen to run her comparison, as Future for one, is a beloved character in the male-centric forum of rap.
As a consequence of the backlash, Lizzo has taken down the Tweet in question, but not without causing a bluster of in-fighting on social media. Swae Lee and Future have shown up ready to do battle, and so have Lizzo’s supporters, even though she seemingly recanted on her position.
“Sometimes I get pissed that there are people who call future & sway lee (sic) rappers and still question whether or not I belong in the rap conversation…but then I remember I have the #4 song in the country, laugh, go back to my dream job and log-off,” she wrote in the since-deleted post.
Worth noting: Future and Swae Lee aren’t exactly paragons of gender equality, the former, due to his treatment of Ciara and their offspring, following their split. Swae Lee well… he’s just a Hot Boy whose training wheels went unhinged. How do you feel about Lizzo’s remarks, or her decision to do away with the post?
