Lido Pimienta Says She Suffered Injuries From Attack Outside Her Toronto Home

    Lido Pimienta has shared a series of social media updates about being attacked outside her home in Toronto over the weekend. The Colombian-Canadian artist tweeted Saturday about an encounter that day with a white woman who allegedly hit her with a shopping cart on the street in front of her children. “My face is all scratched my body all bruised,” Pimienta wrote. “I hit her too to defend myself.”

    She continued, “It’s so messed up that I am shaking and hurting and bleeding but that’s not what’s worrying me right now, it’s the likelihood of the p*lice showing up at my door that is really really scary to me right now.” In an Instagram post the following day, Pimiento said “The p*lice never showed up, thankfully, which was my/our only concern,” adding, “My children and I are OK, at home, safe and healing. At this point I can only hope that the other person implicated thinks twice before they try to attack or target someone like me.”

    Pimienta’s most recent album was 2020’s Miss Colombia. She recently shared a cover of Björk’s ‘Declare Independence’ as part of a Spotify Pride campaign.
