Lizzo already knew “Truth Hurts,” but she’s also learning the risks of getting hangry.
The hip-hop sensation is apologizing after she went to Twitter to accuse a Postmates driver ― incorrectly, as it happens ― of stealing her food.
In a now-deleted tweet on Monday, the 31-year-old rapper angrily called out the food delivery app and the driver who was supposed to drop off a meal:
Hey @Postmates this girl Tiffany W. stole my food. she lucky I don’t fight no more.
Postmates quickly responded on Twitter asking for more info.
A company spokesperson told Page Six that the delivery person did show up and waited five minutes, but wasn’t able to reach Lizzo so she moved on.
“As soon as Lizzo reached out, we looked into the matter and quickly resolved the issue. We apologize to Lizzo for any inconvenience,” the spokesperson said in a statement.
However, many Twitter users called out Lizzo for publicly shaming the driver.
By Tuesday, Lizzo had seen the error of her ways and apologized for the hangry response: “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.”
