MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- After her highly anticipated Summerfest performance, singer Lizzo said in a series of tweets that a security guard "tackled and attacked her team at Summerfest." 

Summerfest responded via social media saying:

"Lizzo gave an incredible performance which she now feels is tarnished by events which occurred during the performance. We do not tolerate racism in any form. We will conduct a thorough investigation. We have experienced crowd management staff who strive to protect performers & fans. While there may be challenges during a performance, we expect those challenges to be handled professionally & respectfully. If those standards were not met, we will take appropriate action."  

Lizzo acknowledged and thanked Summerfest for its response. She said her team would be filing a complaint against the guard. 

The singer later tweeted a video saying there was "nothing like 10,000 people" singing along with one of her hit songs. She called her Summerfest show the "best show ever."
