If Demi Lovato wanted her “sister” Poot Lovato to disappear, she’s going to have to wait a while. TIME Magazine has released the list of the “16 Most Influential Fictional Characters” and the star of the meme came in at #15. The horribly-angled photo of Demi spawned Poot’s backstory — that she was a hidden sister, held captive in a basement and finally escaped. Fans of Poot began to create life stories and a social media presence for the character. It even sparked a farcical social media campaign demanding #JusticeForPoot.
Though the world found Poot funny, of course Demi did not. “Cool to see a shitty angle turn into a meme that circulates the internet to people’s amusement ha,” she tweeted.
Maybe Poot’s achievement can help soften the blow from Demi’s lack of Grammy nominations.
Are you happy to see Poot named to the list?
