Lizzo shared an emotional message on Instagram Live claiming that "the real story not being told fully" amid protests across the country against racism and police brutality.

Protests are being held in cities across the country following the death of an unarmed black man named George Floyd in police custody.

Speaking about racism, Lizzo said, "What they just told me is at this point all the violence, the majority of the violence that's happening in that city, is coming from the KKK and the heavily militarized police."

"There are people coming from the south, there are white supremacist terrorist groups coming from the south, patrolling the streets, shooting people. Follow some people in Minneapolis, 'cause the real story is not being told fully."

"It's never black people, it's always white people using the term 'race war,'" she added. "We don't want that sh*t. We want what we've always wanted from the beginning of being in this f---ing country, the same right that all these other people have. It's not this difficult."

She added, "It's not that hard to see. The people that don't see it don't want to see it. I don't have sympathy for people who don't see it anymore. Black people are tired. We are so tired."

"I'm tired of putting myself in danger," Lizzo said. "It's not danger from the protesters, [it's] danger from the police who don't value me. Danger of the white supremacist groups who are shooting at people, who are running people over with their cars. How do we not see where the issue is? Why is everyone being so — in the media — political?"
