Demi Lovato will not put up with her haters. Moments after deactivating her Twitter account, the singer blasted fans for making jokes about her near-fatal overdose.

This Sunday, February 3, the pop princess was slammed for sharing a meme about 21 Savage's deportation. In her post, it seemed like she was making fun of his illegal status, and people were not happy. They soon began to laugh at Lovato, 26, mocking the brutal drug addiction that almost killed her.

"Well @ddlovato you are a sore loser for making fun of @21savage nobody made fun of you when you were poppin them drugs...Keep that negative energy way over there, I'm praying for you too...Stay blessed. #21savage" wrote a ruthless user.

"Somebody said Demi Lovato laughing about 21 deportation memes as if that heroin wasnt about to deport her to Heaven," tweeted another, referring to the terrifying drug overdose that landed Lovato in rehab.

Seeing the vicious backlash, the "Sober" singer deactivated her Twitter account, but shared a powerful message on her Instagram story, explaining herself and voicing her sadness over the ruthless comments.

"Wasn't laughing at anyone getting pottered. I know that's not a joke... not have I EVER laughed at that. The meme I posted/was talking about was of him being writing with a feather pen," she wrote.

Lovato then apologized but said her remark did not warrant the overwhelming hate coming from angry tweeters.

"Sorry if I offended anyone. But it's no excuse to laugh at someone's addiction let alone their OD," she added.

And while some fans continued to hate on Lovato despite her account being closed, others understood her argument.

"Y'all really went harder on Demi Lovato than R Kelly," replied a user, defending the pop star.
