Demi Lavato Faces Backlash for Mocking 21 Savage’s ICE Arrest

Singer Demi Lovato is facing criticism after making fun of fellow singer 21 Savage’s arrest by ICE.

According to Fox News:

Demi Lovato deactivated her Twitter account after getting backlash for mocking 21 Savage, who was arrested by ICE in Atlanta on Sunday.

On Sunday night, the “Confident” singer tweeted, “So far 21 Savage memes have been my favorite part of the Super Bowl.”

Earlier that day, ICE detained 21 Savage, alleging that he is actually a British citizen and came to the United States illegally in 2005 and overstayed his visa.

Lovato, 26, came under heavy criticism for her tweet from followers, as well as other rapper Wale, who replied, “Why is somebody freedom funny … I don’t get the joke.”

The rapper is facing deportation over a felony drug arrest in 2014. It is unclear if he will appeal the deportation.

As a result of the backlash, Lovato deleted her Twitter account.
