Lovato later followed up with, “FYI this is the shit I’m laughing at.. not the fact that anyone is getting deported.”
Not long after she deleted her Twitter account, Lovato wrote on her Instagram Story.
“Wasn’t laughing at anyone getting deported. I know that’s not a joke…not have I EVER laughed at that,” she said. “The meme I posted/was talking about was of him being writing with a feather pen. Sorry if I offended anyone.”
She continued, “But it’s no excuse to laugh at someone’s addiction, let alone their OD.”
