Demi Lovato shut down her Twitter account Sunday after users piled on criticism of her laughing at memes about 21 Savage.

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.”

Why y’all 21 Savage like this?! 😩

Some 21 Savage fans were not amused, saying they felt the singer was taking a cheap shot at someone else’s misfortune.

One of them was rapper Wale, who said, “Why is somebody freedom funny … I don’t get the joke.”

Many users, though, thought it was a little much to pile onto Lovato when others were laughing at the same memes.

Especially when some of the backlash came as criticism of Lovato’s drug use. The singer was hospitalized in July after an apparent drug overdose.

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.
