Demi Lovato Deactivates Twitter Account
Try following Demi Lovato’s @ddlovato account on Twitter’s mobile app after the Super Bowl, and you’d be met with a notification that “You have been blocked from following this account at the request of this user.” Don’t panic. It’s not likely that Demi Lovato noticed your timeline, found something offensive and decided to hit the block button to banish you from her brainspace.
It’s a glitch that Twitter has for deactivated accounts. The truth: Demi Lovato deactivated her Twitter account right around the time the Super Bowl finished because of the harsh criticism she received after expressing amusement at 21 Savage memes. In case you missed the celebrity scandal that hit media right before the Super Bowl, it was about rapper 21 Savage being arrested by immigration authorities — apparently the self-proclaimed Atlanta-area local is a British citizen who overstayed his visa starting more than 10 years ago. He’s not even American! Thus the memes.
So far 21 savage memes have been my favorite part of the Super Bowl.
Some blue-checkmark verified account named @Wale snapped at Demi accusing her of laughing at 21 Savage’s freedom. He declared “I don’t get the joke.” He added towards Demi: “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.”
After other users piled on bullying Demetria, she gave up and deactivated her account.
She’s still active on Instagram thought where her followers are more understanding of her vulnerabilities in the wake of her depression and addiction treatments. Her most recent publicized medical treatment was less than a year ago, in July 2018, when she was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
