MILWAUKEE (CelebrityAccess) Lizzo, who was the headlining act at the Harley-Davidson Roadhouse Stage at Milwaukee’s traditional Summerfest June 27, says that a security guard harassed her staff with racial motivations.

Lizzo reportedly performed to more than 10,000 people.

She took to Twitter to say that a security guard attacked her two stylists, saying it was a racist act.

“This racist bigot put his hands on my people and used hurtful language while tackling and dragging my team off the festival grounds,” she said, requesting footage of the alleged incident.

It wasn’t the only tweet she sent:

She followed it up with this:

“Lizzo gave an incredible performance which she now feels is tarnished by events which occurred during the performance,” Summerfest responded. “We do not tolerate racism in any form. We will conduct a thorough investigation.”
