    Trevor, if you read this..I can not thank you enough for being the person who “has dialog” about balance. So much of people’s conversations end up in going to extreme to prove a point.
    Context and kindness!!! Thank you Trevor

    I’m from the bay area and grew up during the hyphy movement.
    The definition for spazz in my area is exactly what Trevor described.
    When this story broke, I was so confused until the word was defined as offensive in other cultures. Lizzo did the right thing!! 💕 I’m always going to be her fan

    This is cancel culture at it’s worst. She never should’ve bothered changing the lyric. People need to grow up and not be so sensitive.

    You’re totally right about the toxicity of piling on people after they’ve corrected behavior. Especially when it’s not intentional, and that correction is both swift and fully acknowledged.

    I do want to point out that there actually IS an instance where the “N-word” is in common use as something with a totally different meaning. Ask any native Chinese person what the equivalent of “uhm” is. They’ll tell you it’s the Chinese word 那个, which when pronounced quickly (and repetitively) as is common in normal Chinese speech, sounds VERY much like the N-word. One of the first things a Chinese person needs to unlearn when speaking Chinese in primarily spoken English locales is to avoid using “uhm”, which is VERY hard to unlearn if you’ve been doing it most of you life.

    Im disabled. Lizzo did everything right. We all make (mistakes/asan); we all learn and grow. It’s part of being human. She apologized and even corrected her mistake; that makes up for it, the end.

    They are just miserable people. Who the heck knew? She was more than gracious! Lizzo was amazing in her response. She could have said I am Black and we don’t use that word that way in our culture and kept the word. However she didn’t. That’s amazing. Not sure if many other artists would have changed their word, especially those in the rap genre. Kudos to Lizzo! Those calling her fat so what. You can not hurt her by calling her fat. It is what it is! If that’s all you got then be quiet! Don’t nobody care! You can call me fat and I will say thank you!! Fat is not an insult in our culture!!

    This angry lynch mob mentality on the web is ridiculous.

    I really like the production of this segment. And his approach of this topic is brilliant too. Keyboard warriors are the worst.

    As a South African, this man makes me believe that I can achieve anything as long as I put in the work.

    It’s not just black people in America, I’ve used “spaz” to mean “go crazy” for forever. It just goes to show that you cannot appease the internet mob. You should just ignore it.
