Lovato soon deleted her original post and took to Instagram to defend her actions, saying that she was directly referring to a picture that depicted 21 Savage writing his raps with a feather pen. “Sorry if I offended anyone,” she said, before addressing the retaliatory drug abuse jokes that social media users made at her expense. “But it’s no excuse to laugh at someone’s addiction.”

Lovato has since deactivated her Twitter account.
