Summerfest is investigating an incident after ESSENCE digital cover star Lizzo accused a “bigoted” security guard of attacking her team.

The “Juice” singer shared on Instagram, “Tonight was beautiful. You are beautiful. But the struggle ain’t over. Racism and bigotry don’t care if you’re a headliner.”

Lizzo then had a warning message for Summerfest.

“If you lay hands on my team again I hope you ready for the wrath of God. Thank you @summerfest. We will be filing a complaint against that bigoted ‘security’ guard and I hope you’ll be cooperative in seeking justice,” she wrote.

The singer later updated the post after the Milwaukee festival reached out, adding, “UPDATE: @Summerfest responded and will be investigating the guards who attacked my team! Thanks for the support and please send any footage you might have it all helps!”

A rep for the festival tweeted Friday morning that they will “conduct a thorough investigation” and “do not tolerate racism in any form.”

“We have an experienced crowd management staff who strive to protect performers & fans. While there may be challenges during a performance, we expect those challenges to be handled professionally & respectfully. If those standards were not met, we will take appropriate action,” the festival added.

Hopefully, the issue is resolved quickly.
