Lizzo tweeted a (since-deleted) photo of the driver with the message: "Hey @Postmates this girl Tiffany W. stole my food. she lucky I don't fight no more."
The food delivery service responded with an apology and asked for Lizzo's details to further look into the complaint.
Hi! We're sorry to hear you've had a less than satisfactory experience on our app. Would you mind DM'ing the email address linked to your account, so we can look further into this for you?— Postmates Support (@Postmates_Help) September 17, 2019
Some Lizzo stans leapt to the singer's defence, claiming that she deserves everything in the world (especially when it's an order of food she paid for), while others called her out for using her celebrity and power to likely get a service worker fired over what may have been a simple misunderstanding.
You betta give THE lizzo what she deserves and more. I don't play when it comes to the ones I love pic.twitter.com/Lzk0bbHLxy— carlos (@sleazycarloss) September 17, 2019
How about protecting your driver from doxxing and abuse for something you have no proof of occurring?— Tater Thot (@prayformojo) September 17, 2019
Lizzo has since responded, apologizing for publicly shaming the Postmates driver.
"I understand I have a large following and that there were so many variables that could've put her in danger," she wrote. "Imma really be more responsible with my use of social media and check my petty and my pride at the door."
I apologize for putting that girl on blast. I understand I have a large following and that there were so many variables that could've put her in danger. Imma really be more responsible with my use of social media and check my petty and my pride at the door. 🥺— |L I Z Z O| (@lizzo) September 17, 2019
