I think people need to understand that the problem here isn’t Lizzo but the fact that the Daily Mail said it’s a “trend set by Kim Kardashian” because she didn’t do anything like that. https://t.co/Wqz7qIyS5R

Some of you have to stop with this crap like K*M and his daughter didn’t invent this “trend”, it’s a traditional accessory worn by Indian women, not a reality TV star and her kids fashion statement made by https://t.co/qi5fpdmUX0

When desi wear nose rings/studs it is rude and unprofessional but when they do it is a trend that can’t outweigh the doer https://t.co/2S7S0ucixB

South Asian women have been wearing nose rings for centuries, and I’m pretty sure African women are too, but no it’s Kim (not sure about Lizzo in this case) who are clearly the trend setters. Well done, Daily Mail! https://t.co/E0kEoyxqVg

Most were unsure how Lizzo fits into the conversation as nose rings are also worn by some African tribes. Much of the social media anger was directed toward the publication, meaning the “trend” was set by Kardashian and her daughter.
