She's not trying to be rude, but expect a Lysol shower.
Lizzo is not taking the rise of the more contagious Delta variant lightly. The singer/rapper posted a seven-minute "public service announcement" Instagram video on Tuesday (July 27) in which she politely asked fans to stay six feet away so that she can make sure her mom stays healthy. With the nation overrun by the COVID-19 variant, Lizzo said don't take it personally, but also don't get anywhere near her.
"I don't care who you are. You could be the nicest person. You could be vaccinated," she said. "You could be quadruple vaccinated. If you see me, please give me 6 feet. This s--- is coming back. COVID. And people being real sloppy with personal space." As if to prove her level of seriousness, Lizzo busted out a small spray bottle and promised to use it on anyone who gets too close.
"Because it's not you. It's me," she said. "I'm not trying to catch nothing. I don't even want to catch feelings, b---h. You think I'm trying to catch COVID?" The post comes as U.S. COVID-19 cases have spiked by 170% over the past two weeks as less than half of the country is fully vaccinated and the Delta variant has surged to represent more than 80% of new COVID cases in the U.S., according to the nation's top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci.
