- Demi Lovato is being dragged online after she posted about the riots in Washington DC in the United States
- The singer posted her disgust at scenes from the unrest and said she was in the studio working on something after the day's events
- Online users then responded to the announcement with criticism and mockery with most advising Lovato to donate money to causes rather than write a song about democracy
Demi Lovato is one of many celebrities weighing in on the riots at the Capitol building in Washington D.C. in the United States.
The singer posted her thoughts online and expressed disgust at the violent scenes that were unfolding. She also retweeted a point that the aggression was being met without police brutality.
Many agreed with her stance but things unravelled when Lovato ended her tweets by saying she was "in the studio working on something special after today’s assault on democracy."
Twitter users jumped on the statement and began dragging Lovato for it. There were many who disregarded Lovato entirely and said her words showed that she was too ill-informed, delusional, and unrealistic to take any meaningful action:
@stormknowlss: "No girl please, you can speak out whatever you want, we appreciate you using your platform but we don't need no songs about it."
Some thought mockery was a better way to prove a point and made jokes at the singer's expense about her arrogance in thinking that a song she sings is going to subdue political turmoil:
@d_lovatoroses: "And what do expect this song of yours to do? End systematic racism? Call out Trump again and state the obvious?"
@flopasaurusex: "I understand the sentiment honey but please leave the studio and go home."
Others suggested to the singer that instead of being in the studio, she should be making a difference in a more tangible way:
@d_lovator: "Girl just open your f**king purse and donate some money... it does a lot more than writing and releasing songs then keeping the proceeds or profit made... like..."
Some stans argued that Lovato was using her talents to make a difference but they were argued away by the vast number who thought the singer's privilege to be blinding her judgment.
