Monday should’ve been a stellar day for Demi Lovato. With a speech and a performance at the Democratic National Convention, she might’ve just enjoyed it. Instead, she got wrapped up in a feud with perennial Twitter fighter Perez Hilton.
Perez made his latest round with Demi public on Monday night by posting photos of direct messages Demi sent him even though they were intended to be private. Demi’s messages to Perez were about Perez liking tweets related to Demi’s bad blood with Mariah Carey.
Apparently, Demi was upset that Perez is still hung up on the shade she threw at Mariah after a comparison between the diva and Ariana Grande. That social media snafu almost led Demi to leave Twitter and Instagram.
The quarrel continued as Perez went on to criticize Demi for being petty and spending too much time on Twitter. He even jumped in on the #DemsInPhilly and #DemConvention hashtags to call out Demi’s performance at the DNC in Philadelphia. Eventually, the hashtag #PerezExposedDemiParty emerged.
Demi responded to some of Perez’s tweets, but has since deleted her posts. Her fans came to her defense. Many attacked the ethics of Perez and shared the direct messages. Others questioned whether or not he had even exposed anything.
Eventually, the hashtags #PerezExposedHimselfParty and #PerezIsTrashParty surfaced as people continued to criticize the gossip hound.
