This weekend, Diddy hosted what he called "the world's biggest dance-a-thon," where he did Instagram Lives with various celebrities and encouraged people to donate to COVID-19 relief at teamlove.com.
But backlash came when Diddy had Lizzo stop mid-twerking and said, "Whoa, stop. It's Easter Sunday. Let's play something a little family friendly."
He then streamed with Draya, who twerked to "Back That Ass Up," and he said nothing.
Here's the snippets, one after the other, for comparison:
People on Twitter were quick to point out the double standard they thought they saw:
Diddy took to his Instagram story to clarify. "There's one thing I wanna make clear. My queen, my sister Lizzo. When I stopped the music, it was because it had a lot of curses in there — not because she was twerking," he said. "She's one of the best twerkers in the world. Let's keep that clear."
"You're allowed to twerk on Easter. It was a lot of cursing in the record. I don't need Child Services knocking on my door right now," he added.
"That's why I stopped the record. Lizzo, we love you. Everyone stop looking for the negative. Look for the positive. We love y'all!"
Lizzo reposted Diddy's story that clarified that situation, so it looks like there's no drama here.
