During the Super Bowl, Lovato tweeted, “So far 21 Savage memes have been my favorite part of the Super Bowl,” which resulted in a number of tweets criticizing the singer for being insensitive to the rapper’s detainment.

21 Savage was arrested Sunday morning by ICE in Atlanta under the suspicion that he is actually from the UK and his visa expired in 2006. This arrest came right after 21 Savage add an extra verse to his song ALOT during his SNL performance. When he speaks on Flint Michigan water troubles and immigration in America.

According to ICE, the rapper, legally named Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, allegedly entered the United States legally when he was a minor in July 2005, but failed to leave under the terms of his nonimmigrant visa. This is crazy because 21 Savage was arrested in 2014 for a drug charged and they didn’t bring up his expired visa then. How convenient is it when a public figure speaks on America issues they either get assassinated or emasculated.

Demi Lovato out of all people shouldn’t be making fun or laughing at memes about somebody going through real shit. Who cares if she was making fun of 21 Savage being from the United Kingdom. The man is currently locked up and is facing deportation in America. He has a family, ain’t nothing funny about this situation.

Rapper Wale tweeted in defense of 21 Savage writing, “Why is somebody freedom funny…I don’t get the joke.”

In response, Lovato criticized Wale in a now-deleted Instagram comment captured by the Shade Room: “Wale just salty I never replied to his desperate tweets years ago.”

To which Wale replied: “Still ain’t gon disrespect you…still praying for you Demi. Glad u seen my old tweets. Hopefully you seen the ones providing comfort and prayer when you were down. I don’t kick people when they down. Go queen.”

In another tweet, Wale added: “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.”

Lovato initially attempted to clarify her statement on Twitter writing, “F— Twitter. This is why I don’t tweet anymore,” before referencing an actual meme, one that joked about the fact that many of 21 Savage’s fans didn’t know he was British, in another tweet. “FYI this is the s— I’m laughing at…not the fact that anyone is getting deported,” she wrote.

Later on, Lovato turned to Instagram where she addressed the incident in a series of posts to her Instagram story. Although the singer apologized to the people she offended, she was also quick to criticize Twitter users who referenced her past struggles with addiction during the backlash.

“Wasn’t laughing at anyone getting deported,” Lovato wrote. “Sorry if I offended anyone. But it’s no excuse to laugh at someone’s addiction let alone their OD.”

“I was laughing at who the f— knew 21 was British? Literally no one,” she added. “That’s it. It doesn’t go deeper than that. I’m sorry if I upset people truly.”
