Imagine sending a tweet from your phone and watching the whole world react! It read:

"Hey @lizzo - My disability Cerebral Palsy is literally classified as Spastic Diplegia (where spasticity refers to unending painful tightness in my legs) your new song makes me pretty angry + sad. ‘Spaz’ doesn’t mean freaked out or crazy. It’s an ableist slur. It’s 2022. Do better."

What happens next changed the music heard around the globe. It wasn't just Lizzo who changed her tune, literally, Beyoncé felt the wrath of this incredible disability activist and she's just getting started!
