Not long after, Lovato chose to deactivate her Twitter in response to all the blowback she was getting.
21 Savage, real name Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was arrested by ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) on Sunday morning. "I know that's not a joke...not have I EVER laughed at that", she wrote. After his arrest, 21 Savage was detained as officials worked out removal proceedings. She shared a picture of a person writing with ink and a feather pen with the caption, "This how 21 Savage be writing his verses". Perhaps most importantly, just like the majority of Twitter, she wasn't making fun of 21 Savage being deported. "FYI this is the s- I'm laughing at...not the fact that anyone is getting deported", she wrote.
However, fans and fellow musicians didn't find it amusing.
In another message she said: "F-k Twitter". "A lot of people were sending you love light, prayers etc. A lot of people.Bless up".More news: EU Official Raises Prospect Of No-Deal Brexit After Meeting With MPs

However, it appears that Lovato has deactivated her Twitter account since the backlash.
Numerous 21 Savage deportation memes involved American Revolution-era imagery, including Red Coats and men using feather pens to write.
She continued: 'Sorry if I offended anyone.
Lovato, apparently amused by memes that had sprung up in the wake of the shocking news, was promptly dragged by users who felt her comment was offensive and insensitive - including users who brought up her reported 2018 drug overdose.
