Following 21 Savage's arrest, Demi Lovato said that she found the memes about the rapper being British more amusing than anything going on during the Super Bowl. Mind you, the rest of the world was also indulging in memes but Demi Lovato ended up getting dragged through Twitter before deactivating her account.
Wale was one of the first people who checked her over the tweet. Even though she was rather petty in her response -- saying the rapper is still mad that she didn't reply to his DMs -- Wale didn't reciprocate her energy. He still maintained a respectful tone in his response, saying, "Still ain't gon disrespect you, still praying for you Demi. Glad you seen my old tweets. Hopefully you seen the ones providing comfort and prayer when you were down. I don't kick people when they down."
In an interview with the New York Times which was published last night, 21 Savage admitted that he found some of the memes funny while admitting that he had bigger fish to fry than internet trolls. Demi Lovato's fans pounced at Wale immediately after, demanding that he issue an apology to Lovato.
"Y’all wasting time . Ain’t nobodydisrespect her. I said what I said with the level of respect I didn’t receive . This entitlement gotta stop," he wrote. "Imagine me.. a black man on my hands and knees begging ... this shyt is gross and that entitlement is goin Brazy," he added.
After receiving the backlash and deactivating her Twitter account, Demi Lovato reportedly checked herself into rehab due to the criticism she faced.
