The rapper was taken into custody by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents Sunday and reportedly faces deportation. When the news came out that he may actually be British, memes shortly followed.
In a now-deleted tweet, Lovato said, “So far 21 savage memes have been my favorite part of the Super Bowl.”
Lovato later followed up with, “FYI this is the shit I’m laughing at.. not the fact that anyone is getting deported.”
Not long after she deleted her Twitter account, Lovato wrote on her Instagram Story.
“Wasn’t laughing at anyone getting deported. I know that’s not a joke…not have I EVER laughed at that,” she said. “The meme I posted/was talking about was of him being writing with a feather pen. Sorry if I offended anyone.”
She continued, “But it’s no excuse to laugh at someone’s addiction, let alone their OD.”
Lovato celebrated six months of sobriety just a few weeks ago.
