Lizzo has been called out for trying to trademark the "100% that bitch" phrase after people found out it wasn't her lyric.

According to The Blast, Lizzo has filed to trademark the "100% that bitch" phrase from her 2017 song "Truth Hurts".

In the song, she sings, "I just took a DNA test / Turns out I'm 100% that bitch."

Apparently Lizzo is planning to print the phrase onto her forthcoming merchandise, including t-shirts, hoodies, jackets, hats, and more.

Pop Buzz report that people aren't overly happy with Lizzo's decision, after finding out that singer Mina Lioness had written the same phrase in a tweet seven months before "Truth Hurts" dropped.

Lioness caught wind of Lizzo's attempt to trademark the phrase, and wrote on Twitter, "What I cannot get over is how brazen Lizzo and her team have been in ignoring my whole presence. They’re doing it because they know I have no capital to address her. I’m just the poor Black girl from London that don’t have a dog in the fight."

She added, "I should have recorded the diss track huh."

Lizzo is yet to respond to the criticism.
