Dani Vitale posted a message on Instagram in her defense
Demi Lovato's fans were shocked by their idol's overdose. Many were searching for answers during such a tragic event that they were looking for someone to blame for the singer's drug abuse. The person who ended up getting the brunt of their criticism is one of Demi's dancers, Dani Vitale. Lovato is said to have been attending Dani Vitale's party hours before she overdosed.
The dancer has endured a lot of negativity online. Vitale recently posted a message in an attempt to quell people's anger and defend herself as one of Demi's true friends as opposed to a "bad influence" who might be the cause of her overdose.
"I was not with Demi when the incident happened, but I am with her now and will continue to be because she means the world to me just as she does to all of you [...] Please remember that you have always been a community of Lovatics who LOVE. Please remember that when you take out your phones and start typing..."
Despite this message, many are still commenting on her past posts with snake emojis and calls for the dancer to "stay away from Demi." Others are still questioning her innocence with comments like "sure, Dani Vitale wasn't at Dani Vitale's party."
The comment sections of previous posts that show Dani and Demi together are still active.
