Diddy stopped Lizzo from twerking during his Instagram Live session on Easter and is facing some rather heavy backlash.
P Diddy ain’t SHIT ? When Lizzo started twerking he brought that to an end with the quickness but had nothing to say to Draya when she was shaking bum ????????????????????????? pic.twitter.com/W2BAskCYSX

The circulated clip sees Lizzo dancing and twerking and generally enjoying the vibe before being told to “stop the music” because it happened to be Easter. “Let’s play something a little bit family friendly,” Diddy said in the clip, which juxtaposed the moment via editing with another one from the livestream.
While many Lizzo fans started speculating that Diddy was specifically asking for the music to pause due to the fact that some twerking was going on, that wasn’t the case. As Diddy explained, it was due to the nature of the music itself.
“There’s one thing that I wanna make clear,” he said later. “My queen, my sister, Lizzo, when I stopped the music, it’s because it had a lot of curses in there. Not because she was twerking. She’s one of the best twerkers in the world, okay? So let’s keep that clear. It wasn’t about twerking. You’re allowed to twerk on Easter. There was a lot of cursing on the record and I don’t need child services knocking on my door right now, you understand?”
Diddy added that he loves Lizzo and urged everyone to “stop looking for the negative” and instead seek the positive.

Diddy already said clearly it wasn't because of her twerking. Y'all done reaching? https://t.co/T6wS1bNZyd
