PSA for all Americans… In case you were unaware, this is what oppression looks like:

On Sunday, at the annual MTV Video Music Awards, multi-millionaire singer Lizzo won an award and, during her acceptance speech, began complaining about being oppressed.

“I don’t know what, uh, ‘Music Video for Good’ means, but I do know what your vote means. And that’s a f***ing lot,” said the pop singer. “Your vote means everything to me, it means everything to making a change in this country. So remember when you’re voting for your favorite artists, vote to change some of these laws that are oppressing us.”


Lizzo failed to specify in her speech exactly what laws were “oppressing” her. Was she talking about Roe v. Wade? Are the abortion laws oppressing her? She can always hop on her private jet and go to a state where abortion is legal.

While people throughout the United States face real problems, and struggle to make ends meet in everyday life, please don’t forget about the real victims in our society: the multi-millionaire celebrities.

Lizzo is so oppressed, in fact, that she owns a private jet and has a home in Los Angeles that’s worth a whopping $26 million.

Maybe someone should take Lizzo away from her fantasy world where she is worth $12 million, and introduce her to some of the people who are actually suffering in today’s horrible economic climate. Maybe she’d realize that her problems aren’t as oppressive as she thinks and quit trying to play the victim.
