After backlash over the Ableist slur, Beyonce will modify the lyrics to HEATED

After backlash over the Ableist slur, Beyonce will modify the lyrics to HEATED ...

Beyonce has responded to criticism over a song from her new album Renaissance, which included an ableist slur. On the outro of the song, Beyonce raps, Spazzin on that a, and spazz on that a. Some listeners took to Twitter to lambast the lyrics, claiming that the disabilities they suffer from are not the basis for song lyrics.

Hannah Diviney, a disability advocate from Sydney, said her heart sank when she heard the song's slur used twice. This time the stakes are higher, she wrote, referring to Lizzos recent use of the term on her album Special. I'm so weary. Disabled people deserve better. I don't want to have this conversation again.

Fans thanked Beyonce for changing the words and eliminating the slurs.

This is why it is so important to make a complaint or cancelling an offer. It's not about cancelling or resigning, it's about educating and forming a more accepting society for disabled people.

Lizzo responded to the same outcry over her song Grrrls in June, which included the same term. She swiftly removed the words from her song and changed the lyrics.

I have been warned that my new song Grrrls contains a harmful word. Let me just state one thing: I never want to promote derogatory language, the singer stated on June 13. As a fat black woman in America, I have experienced many derogatory words.

This is the result of me listening and taking action, Lizzo added, stating that she is dedicated to being a part of the change she has been waiting for in the world.
