Demi Lovato found herself in a trending topic on Twitter after joking about the Zika virus on Snapchat.
“In no way did I mean to offend anyone last night. I was laughing at how southern my mom sounded, not the issue at hand. Deepest apologies,” the 23-year-old “Body Say” singer wrote on Twitter.
Demi‘s mom, Dianna de la Garza added, “My deepest and sincerest apologies to everyone who was offended by this. I never meant to hurt anyone. I’m sorry.”
In the Snapchat story, Demi shared a video of Dianna saying, “Everybody down in Rio gonna get the Zika virus” and immediately after, was criticized on Twitter for the video.
Demi continued on Twitter: “If you watch everything I do, you’re still a fan.. I ain’t goin nowhere b******. It’s an awesome feeling when you’re so content with life and yourself that hate doesn’t effect you.. Feelin’ good y’all.”
