Demi Lovato Is Receiving Backlash for 21 Savage Arrest Comments
Following 21 Savage's ICE arrest on Sunday, many artists and celebrities took to social media to comment on the rapper's possible deportation. However, in a now-deleted tweet, Demi Lovato admitted that 21 Savage's memes were her favorite part of the Super Bowl, which is when celebrities and fans alike criticized the singer for laughing at the rapper's expense.
Offset, Lil Yachty, Sid the Kid, and Wale all took aim at Lovato following her tweet, which then prompted the singer to backtrack on her previous statement and admit to hating Twitter for this reason. Mia Khalifa brought up Lovato's issues with drug addiction, which mirrored many of the hate-fueled comments about drugs other people used to drag the singer.
21 Savage's co-manager, Kei Henderson, also commented on Demi's remark, noting that he and Savage had privately expressed sympathy for the singer while she was battling her own demons. "Damn. We was def Demi Lovato fans. When she was going through her shit, I remember being on the tour bus and Savage said I hope she make it through that shit. People r weird bro," Henderson wrote on Twitter.
