Lizzo is extremely irresponsible tweeting that girl’s picture knowing how huge her platform is and how crazy and dangerous the Internet is. She could’ve excluded the screeshot in her complaint. Use your celebrity responsibly.— ramada lynn whitfield (@wholel0ttaMANI) September 17, 2019

I apologize for putting that girl on blast. I understand I have a large following and that there were so many variables that could’ve put her in danger. Imma really be more responsible with my use of social media and check my petty and my pride at the door. 🥺— |L I Z Z O| (@lizzo) September 17, 2019
So, what actually happened? The world may never know. But a source revealed to Rolling Stone that Tiffany did in fact wait at the confirmed delivery location for five minutes but failed to reach Lizzo or the others who had been affiliated with the order.
This, of course, is not the first apology the “Good As Hell” singer has issued after being quick to pull her Twitter trigger. In April, Lizzo took aim at Pitchfork's contributing editor, Rawiya Kameir, who scored Cuz I Love You a 6.5.
"PEOPLE WHO 'REVIEW' ALBUMS AND DONT MAKE MUSIC THEMSELVES SHOULD BE UNEMPLOYED," Lizzo demanded in a now-deleted tweet, only to issue an apology hours later. Oh, she also invited all music journalists to experience her world. That tweet has also been deleted.
At the end of the day, maybe Lizzo should just log off and blame it on the dang juice.
