Summerfest investigating after Lizzo says security attacked her crew

Lizzo says a racist and "bigoted" security guard attacked members of her team at Summerfest, the event she headlined in Milwaukee on Thursday night. She said her team would be filing a complaint against the guard. She stated that she was unable to celebrate what she considered to be her "best show ever" because of the undeniable racism that is still very much present today.

On the upside, Lizzo starts her North American "Cuz I Love You Too" tour in July in OR before picking it back up in September for two months.

Summerfest issued a statement via Twitter Friday morning in response to Lizzo's tweets, apologizing to the singer and saying they would be conducting a thorough investigation into the incident.

'Tonight was attractive. You are lovely. We do not tolerate racism in any form. We have experienced crowd management staff who strive to protect performers & fans. "If those standards were not met, we will take appropriate action", the festival added.

Clash between liberal and authoritarian values at G20 summit
In addition to member nations, this year's G-20 summit has invited the leaders of such nations as Vietnam and Thailand. The finding lifted a cloud over the White House even as tensions have increased between Washington and Moscow.

Lizzo is now en route to the United Kingdom, where she will be performing at the Glastonbury Festival.

In 2014, Dev Hynes was assaulted by Lollapalooza security guards who had been privately hired for the stage - ironically, as he wore a shirt dedicated to police brutality victims Eric Garner, Jordan Davis, and Trayvon Martin.

And, in April, rapper Stomzy pulled out of the Snowbombing festival in Austira after claiming he and his entourage "were racially profiled, targeted and aggressively handled" by security.
