Monica Lewinsky added her vocals to Beyoncé’s backlash and pleaded with the singer to remove a lyric from her 2013 song, “Sheet Music,” which dealt with the scandal involving former President Bill Clinton.

Following criticism from the disability rights community about Beyoncé using a “capable” term in a new song from her album “Renaissance,” Lewinsky asked fans to look more into the singer’s story with offensive remarks.

“Uhmm, while we’re at it…#Sheet music,” Lewinsky tweeted Monday to his million followers, referencing the lyrics to the song off Bey’s self-titled fifth studio album.

“He popped all my buttons, and he ripped my blouse. He did everything with Monica Lewinsky on my dress,” Beyoncé sings in the title.

The word is often used as a negative reference to people with disabilities.

“So @Beyonce used the word ‘spaz’ in her new song Heated”, Hannah Diviney tweeted. “It’s like a slap in the face to me, the disability community and the progress we’ve been trying to make with Lizzo. I guess I’ll keep telling the whole industry to ‘do better’ until ableist slurs disappear from the music.”

“Yes, and me, a black autistic person was also called ‘spaz’ growing up to describe myself as irritating and annoying,” another user wrote online against people defending the word. “The word is an insult. Let it go and leave some compassion for people who have been hurt by that word instead.”

The 16 track albumwhich debuted on Friday, is Beyoncé’s first solo release since 2016’s “Lemonade” and is her seventh studio album.
