Earlier in the weekend, Demi Lovato found herself in the eye of a social media storm. The singer shared a short clip featuring her mother, Dianna Hart, making a joke about the Zika virus. Twitter responded swiftly and #DemiLovatoIsOverParty began trending.
Following the backlash, Demi issued a brief statement about the ordeal via Twitter.
“In no way did I mean to offend anyone last night,” she wrote. “I was laughing at how southern my mom sounded, not the issue at hand. Deepest apologies.” Demi continued by declaring that this little controversy won’t drive her off of social media again.
