Demi Lovato angrily deactivated her Twitter account after getting backlash for mocking 21 Savage, who was arrested by ICE in Atlanta on Sunday.
On Sunday night, the “singer tweeted, “So far 21 Savage memes have been my favorite part of the Super Bowl.”
Earlier that day, ICE detained 21 Savage, alleging that he is actually a British citizen and came to the United States illegally in 2005 and overstayed his visa.
He’s facing deportation following a felony drug charge in 2014.
Lovato, 26, came under heavy criticism for her tweet from followers, as well as other rapper Wale, who replied, “Why is somebody freedom funny … I don’t get the joke.”

Lovato replied that she was referring to memes about 21 Savage being a closet Brit, not getting deported, and blasted those who brought up her addiction issues in response to her original posting.
