Big Time Rush Scrutinized Online Over New Song

A song by the band Big Time Rush is under fire before it has been officially released.

Critics say the song’s title, “Paralyzed“, and its lyrics are ableist. To sum it up lyrically, the tune is about the boys being too stunned to speak after seeing a girl.

The trending conversation on Twitter also brought attention back to Lizzo spirit Beyonce‘s recent lyric changes due to ableist accusations; with many users questioning whether the public’s treatment of Big Time Rush’s situation has been different.

Some online observers did call out the band’s song for its ignorance, but not until after it was already trending due to fans’ excitement–across the globe–about its potential release.
