Demi Lovato Deletes Twitter After 21 Savage Comments Receive Backlash; Bebe Rexha Defends Her
Demi Lovato has seemingly deleted her Twitter account after a comment she made about 21 Savage received some backlash.
"So far 21 savage memes have been my favorite part of the Super Bowl," Demi tweeted during the Super Bowl. Demi’s tweet was in reference to the 26-year-old rapper being arrested by ICE for reportedly overstaying his visa. He now faces the possibility of deportation.
In addition, Lovato shared a meme referencing 21 Savage’s newly revealed British citizenship, sharing a photo of someone writing with a quill pen with the caption, "This how 21 Savage be writing his verses."
Lovato later explained that she was in no way mocking 21 Savage’s arrest. "This is the sh*t I’m laughing at… not the fact that anyone is getting deported," Lovato wrote in reference to the plethora of memes made after the news surfaced.
People immediately started calling her out, prompting Demi to also tweet, "If you’re gonna come at me for making a joke, try coming at me with some original not involving drugs."
Rapper Wale wrote, "Why is somebody freedom funny… I don’t get the joke." Wale also wrote a second tweet, referring to the fans who supported Lovato after her overdose last summer. "A lot of people were sending you love light, prayers etc. When people were making jokes about u at a rough time. A lot of people. Bless up."
"She’s a hypocrite let’s pull out the heroin memes and see if this b*tch doesn’t get emotional," one commenter wrote. Another added, "wonder if she saw the memes about her lol."
Shortly afterwards, Demi tweeted, "F*ck Twitter. This is why I don’t tweet anymore" before deactivating her account.
Bebe Rexha slammed those who came at Demi, who has been sober for over six months, for bringing up drug use in her mentions over the 21 Savage backlash, tweeting, "To all the people who who talked sh*t to Demi you’re F*CKIN DISGUSTING. Attacking someone that is 6 months sober about her personal issues with drugs and mental health over a tweet is LOW."
