Demi Lovato isn't afraid to post controversial things on social media. She's confident enough in herself and how she's perceived professionally to really speak what's on her mind!
However, Demi uploaded a Snapchat that really got her in trouble with fans AND she even got her mom in the middle of it all.
The Snap video was short but the content was what really had fans freaking out. As most people know, the Zika virus is becoming a real threat to society – the virus that severely effects unborn babies and their developmental growth. The virus is running rampant in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil right now and there's been lots of warnings and precautionary measures taken so Olympians and their families will not catch it.
The whole thing is very serious and definitely not something to joke about. But, Demi apparently wasn't thinking straight and her Snap video featured her mom, Dianna Hart, poking fun at the people who may contract the disease down in Brazil. Not. Cool.
Yiikes! Demi quickly learned that this probably wasn't the best idea. The worst part about the whole thing is that fans can hear the "Cool For the Summer" singer's laugh in the background. As things started to heat up over the video, Demi took to Twitter.
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.— Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) August 13, 2016
While fans have since accepted her apology, she's still turning heads because of the incident. We have a feeling this will probably be the last time she decides it's a good idea to use a fatal disease as a joke...
