Demi Lovato’s Tweet on Capitol Building Riot Backfires

2021 started right off the bat with some bad news. Everyone thought that the coronavirus pandemic was the only worst thing ever, but something even more significant happened on January 6, 2021. A group of rioters stormed the United States Capitol against the 117th United States Congress because they did not want Joe Biden to become their next president.

Trump held a rally, which thousands of supporters attended. The supporters went down Pennsylvania Avenue before others stormed the U.S. Capitol Building to disturb the Electoral College vote count. But while all of the chaos was happening, others voiced their opinions on various social media platforms about the incident.

Why Demi Lovato is Getting More Hate than Love Right Now

Nowadays, every social media platform out there is not all about posting about your best outfit or taking a sunset beach photo. You can find that people get political at times, which is why you have famous Terminator Arnold Schwarzenegger voicing out his concerns about the U.S. Capitol riot.

While the Austrian bodybuilder received praises, Demi Lovato, on the other hand, got more hate after she made a tweet on her official Twitter account. The former Disney singer/actress tried to sympathize with everyone who was distraught about the riot, but it quickly backfired when everyone understood her tweet the wrong way.

She posted on Twitter, “My heart is broken. It makes me sad to believe how naive I was to think this couldn’t possibly happen, and yet it did. Here we are. For everyone in my comments saying “where’s d7” or wanting me to sing instead of speaking up about what needs to change in this country.” She also followed with another tweet saying, “THIS IS WHY I POST AS MUCH AS I DO. THIS IS WHY I CARE. THIS CANNOT HAPPEN ANY F***ING MORE. I’m angry, embarrassed, and ashamed. I’m in the studio working on something special after today’s assault on democracy. #ImpeachTrumpTonight”

The pop singer’s post upset people, with many mentioning that she talked more about herself rather than the U.S. Capitol riot. A lot of people did not agree with her tweet. One Twitter user expressed her disappointment on Twitter, saying, “White people burning down the Capitol and your solution is to record music.”

What Happened After the Twitter Post Backlash?

Even after five days, many Twitter users are still commenting on how absurd her tweet was. Some users comments even mentioned that she should fire her hairstylist over racist remarks and wishing death upon a black politician. She still has not posted anything on her Twitter account, which led many people to believe that she is simply waiting for the entire fiasco to die down gradually.

Demi has always been against the Trump administration, that she even made a song titled “Commander in Chief.” Those are enough to tell you how much she wants the U.S. government to change in presidential power.
