Demi Lovato Apologizes After Offended Followers Drag Her for 'Prank' Tweet

“I swear I could tweet something about craving jelly beans and it would offend someone,” Lovato tweeted Sunday morning, upsetting even more people.

It all started innocently enough, when a bored Demi Lovato asked her followers to throw some questions at her after her show Saturday night. "Let’s do a Q&A" she tweeted excitedly. One since-deleted response didn’t sit well even with a large segment of her own fanbase, though, leading to an immediate backlash from the online community.

Lovato answered a bunch of questions without incident, like what word she overused during a phase in her life (Answer: savage), favorite curse word (Samantha Bee knows this one), and whether or not she is in love (Answer: she wishes). Most of her answers were short and sweet, but then she took the time to detail the "funniest prank" she’d ever pulled.

"I hired a lady of the night in Vegas and sent her to Max’s hotel room to surprise him. She walked into his room without permission and grabbed him in his ‘area’ and he freaked the f-ck out hahahahaha," Lovato tweeted (the tweet has since been deleted). To many of her fans, and ultimately to Twitter at large, this wasn’t funny at all.

Lovato first made light of the offense, tweeting, "I swear I could tweet something about craving jelly beans and it would offend someone." This only led to more backlash, and so early Sunday morning she followed it up with a more vehement defense of her character, calling the whole thing "a simple mistake."

Even Max Lea, the guy in the story, jumped on Twitter to defend Lovato, responding to her tweet apologizing if anyone was offended.

When one user tweeted in her defense, "Baby…… we know you and your story," Lovato cryptically replied, "That’ just the thing… people DON’T know my full story.."

Lovato was dragged hard for the prank, though she also had plenty of supporters who came out in her defense. This led to a minor tweet-war of sorts between the hashtags #DemiLovatoIsOverParty and #WeLoveYouDemi. See some of the reactions below.
