Lizzo Dropped From 2024 Super Bowl Halftime Show Amidst Harassment Claims
Lizzo has been dropped from the 2024 Super Bowl Halftime lineup following recent sexual harassment and fat-shaming allegations made by former dancers. The hostile work environment allegations have caused the NFL to remove the pop singer from the lineup swiftly.
Lizzo Dropped From The 2024 Super Bowl Halftime Lineup
In early August 2023, Lizzo found herself amidst controversy as her former dancers, Crystal Williams, Noelle Rodriguez, and Arianna Davis, filed a lawsuit against the singer, claiming she created a “hostile work environment.” These allegations have caused significant backlash and have resulted in the pop singer’s removal from the highly anticipated Super Bowl Halftime performance in 2024.
The NFL quickly distanced themselves from the singer and addressed the claims against her.
Lizzo’s team stated that they are “desperately trying to come up with a strategy to save her sinking ship” amidst the growing number of accusations against her. An undisclosed music executive from Lizzo’s team expressed:
“It is becoming more and more difficult with more people coming forth accusing her of extremely inappropriate acts.”
Amidst the backlash, there have been various reactions from industry insiders and fans. Music executive and internet personality Wack 100 defended Lizzo on Instagram, stating:
“Way to much heat on the sista. @lizzobeeating your courage got you to where your at. Use your courage to fight through these dilemmas . Woman has done nothing wrong . We all have a right to make decisions. Entertainers take note to this. I rather your circle not like you for not inviting them than try to destroy your career for allowing them to be there .. Be responsible for you . Let them find their own way after the business is done. #Jigga #Lizzo needs to be placed back on that #SuperBowlShow.”
Lizzo has yet to speak publicly on the matter.
