Beyonce will eliminate a disparaging term for handicapped individuals from her new melody ‘Warmed’, a representative said Monday, after its utilization was censured as hostile by campaigners.

“Surmise I’ll simply continue to tell the entire business to ‘improve’ until ableist slurs vanish from music,” she tweeted.
