Demi Lovato deactivated her Twitter account after being criticized for laughing at memes about rapper 21 Savage who was arrested by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Sunday. The agency said he was actually from the United Kingdom and was illegally staying in the United States.

In the now-deleted tweet, the singer stated that 21 Savage memes were the “best part of the Super Bowl.” Post the backlash, Lovato wrote, “F--- Twitter. This is why I don’t tweet anymore.”

“If you’re gonna come at me for making a joke, try coming at me with something original not involving drugs,” she tweeted.

Rapper Wale was among the few critical of the singer.

“Why is somebody freedom funny ... I don’t get the joke,” he wrote.

She responded to the tweet by saying, “Wale just salty I never replied to his desperate tweets years ago.”

She, however, issued a clarification on Twitter later by saying she was talking about the British memes and not about the tweets regarding the rapper or his deportation. She took to Instagram to post another apology saying that she never laughed at him but at a joke about him writing with a feather pen.

Several people also took to Twitter to support the singer.

"We was def Demi Lovato fans. When she was going through her s--t I remember being on the tour bus and Savage said I hope she make it through that s--t. People r weird bro," one user wrote, while another said, "The people on Twitter are WRONG for saying the s--t they did to Demi Lovato. When will people learn that two wrongs never make a right. You can call someone out for what they did without tearing them down. Too much damn hate in this world for that s--t. #KillThemWithKindness."

21 Savage, born Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was arrested during a "targeted operation" in Atlanta and is now in federal immigration custody. He entered the U.S. legally in July 2005, however, his visa expired the following year and since then, he has been living in the U.S. illegally.

"In addition to being in violation of federal immigration law, Mr. Abraham-Joseph was convicted on felony drug charges in October 2014 in Fulton County, Georgia," U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Bryan Cox told USA Today.
