Lizzo Slams Paparazzi After Misgendering and Offending Demi Lovato [FULL STORY]
Lizzo had been out and about in Los Angeles, catching the attention of nearby paparazzi because of her choice in shirts, which caused quite a stir.
The celebrity had been wearing a statement piece of a shirt which started the issue.
Before having dinner at Catch LA, Lizzo was seen taking pictures with fans, and some of them recorded the interaction between her and the reporters.
One of the photographers noticed her shirt and said, "Is that a message to Demi? Should she reach out?"
Lizzo decidedly ignored the question.
Instead, she corrected the person by saying mentioning the singer's pronouns after coming out as non-binary.
According to Billboard, Lizzo had held up her finger to silence the crowd, flipping her fabulous blonde hair before saying, "Demi goes by 'they' now."
Demi had caught wind of this and mentioned the "Juice" singer on her Instagram story with the caption "@lizzobeeating you f-cking queen I love you."
