Cancel culture can not be stopped on Twitter and, yet again, frequent victim Demi Lovato is under the spotlight. Why is the singer cancelled this time around? Here’s what’s been going on.
Due to the 2020 US Presidential election, many celebrities have taken to social media to persuade the entire country to go out and vote. Actress and singer Demi Lovato is no stranger to this as she is known for her activism and speaking out for topics, such as mental health and feminism.
However, her latest tweets and song release have caused some controversy as they discuss US politics and call out Donald Trump.
What did Demi Lovato tweet?
On November 7th, Demi celebrated Joe Biden’s win in the Presidential election, followed by another tweet highlighting that Biden supporters should be rejoicing for the future and spreading positivity and not boasting in front of Trump fans.
However, with most of her tweets, comes the haters, especially if you are tweeting about something as sensitive as politics.
The replies section to her tweet became divided – most of her fans agreed with Demi and thanking her for using her platform for advocation although many non-Biden fans came to criticise her:
Some fans have said that since she is a celebrity and comes from a place of privilege, she should not tweet about this issue since her experience may be different from most others.
Demi replied to her haters two hours later:
Clearly, the singer does not care about what the internet says about her, which is unsurprising after she called out cancel culture back in April 2020, when she was accused of shading ex friend Selena Gomez on a finsta (a private second account).
Demi Lovato’s new song
Demi has translated her opinions on the 45th US President in her latest song ‘Commander In Chief’, released on October 14th.
She calls out Trumps leadership regarding issues such as the COVID-19 pandemic and the killing of George Floyd in her lyrics:
“Haven’t they suffered enough? But you can’t get enough of, shuttin’ down systеms for personal gain, fightin’ fires with flyers and prayin’ for rain”.
We can not confirm whether this is why Demi is cancelled again, but her tweets and song release are definitely susceptible to online controversy.
