While her dance moves caught the eyes of many, it was her song choice that piqued Diddy’s interest. “Stop the music,” he said, interrupting her live feed. “It’s Easter Sunday, let’s play something a little bit family friendly.”

Lizzo apologized, even requesting her own hit “Juice” as a possible replacement.

Many fans were quick to criticize the father of seven for halting Lizzo’s live session as he had livestreamed with reality star Draya Michele, who was also seen twerking during her dance-a-thon moment.

Following the social media comments, Diddy clarified why he interrupted Lizzo’s cameo. “There’s one thing that I want to make clear—my queen, my sister Lizzo,” he said.

“She’s one of the best twerkers in the world, ok, so let’s keep that clear. It wasn’t about twerking. You’re allowed to twerk on Easter. It was a lot of cursing in the record and I don’t need child services knocking on my door right now, you understand? Lizzo, we love you. Everybody, stop looking for the negative. Look at the positive, man,” the music mogul concluded.
