Lizzo Doc Director Left Because Singer Was ‘Arrogant And Unkind’
Oscar-nominated filmmaker Sophia Nahli Allison says she quit as the director of a Lizzo documentary in 2019 after two weeks because she “was treated with such disrespect.” The post comes after Lizzo was sued by three ex-dancers who accuse her of sexual harassment and creating a hostile work environment. “I witnessed how arrogant and unkind she is,” Allison wrote. “I was not protected and was thrown into a shi–y situation with little support…This kind of abuse of power happens far too often. Much love and support to the dancers.”
The director elaborated on her claims against Lizzo in a second post, claiming the singer “creates an extremely toxic and hostile working environment and undermines the work, labor and authority of other Black and brown women in the process.” She added that Lizzo is a “narcissistic bully” who “has built her brand off lies.” Lizzo has not yet publicly commented on the lawsuit.
