In a string of bad decisions, Lorde, 21, posted an Instagram post of her steamy-looking bathtub, writing in the caption: “And iiii will always love you.”
While it seemed like an innocent post to some — and even a tribute to the late Whitney Houston — social media haters quickly alluded it to the icon’s dreadful death. As Readers know, Houston accidentally passed away inside a bathtub after ingesting cocaine and suffering from heart problems. Adding to the tragedy, Houston’s daughter, Bobby Kristina Brown later died of an overdose, also inside a bathtub.
Users took to Instagram and Twitter to voice their disapproval of the seemingly insensitive image, with fashion illustrator Hayden Williams even commenting: “Oh no gurrrl…”
Quickly seeing the backlash, the “Royals” singer deleted the controversial photo and wrote an apology.
“Extremely extremely poorly chosen quote. I’m so sorry for offending anyone — I hadn’t even put this together I was just excited to take a bath,” wrote Lorde. “I’m an idiot,” she continued. “Love Whitney forever and ever. Sorry again.”
“It is not my fkin day today,” she added along with three worried-looking emojis.
