Demi Lovato claims to have quit Twitter and Instagram (update: she’s back)

Demi Lovato has an incredible 36.6 million followers on Twitter and 40 million followers on Instagram. That’s a powerful platform, and she’s using it to promote her music, her tour with Nick Jonas and her new skincare line. That’s not something to throw away over a handful of douchebags tweeting crap at you, especially when you’re a celebrity. (In no way is it right, Twitter needs to get a handle on harassment, trolling and death threats especially. While they’ve made some progress, users are saying it’s still not enough.) However if Demi is to be believed, she did just that.

Last night Demi tweeted that she was leaving Instagram and Twitter and going over to Snapchat, where she can share photos and videos without having to deal with comments. As of press time her Twitter and Instagram accounts are still up. Here’s what she tweeted. The tweets where she’s supposedly quitting are at the bottom.


Outlets are reporting that Demi just quit Instagram and Twitter but did she really, or was she just saying she had to get off for a while?

The Daily Mail has the detail that Demi talked some smack about Mariah Carey on another user’s Instagram and then got called out for it. So it may not be about people trolling her for her charity work (which I don’t see mentioned in the last few days on her social media anyway) rather than calling her out for her comments. I guess that’s what she means by “why do people actually give a f- what I say?

Here’s what Demi commented, it was on a Mariah Carey vs. Ariana Grande meme and I couldn’t find the original comment on the meme, but the Instagram user, shadiest.puta (ha!), posted it along with a response that she didn’t mean anything by the original meme.


I’ve already gone too far into the weeds on this one, but in the original meme which Demi commented on there are over a thousand comments and many are negative toward her. Demi also commented on that post about how Mariah isn’t a nice person, which we already knew.

This is why I posted what I did. Jen keeps it classy but I’m not afraid to say s**t. The woman is mean for no reason.

Extremely talented? Yes. Superhuman? Possibly. Unnecessarily rude? Absolutely.

The DM thinks Demi is referring to Jennifer Lopez as Jen there, which makes sense because Mariah and Lopez have a long standing beef where they pretend not to know each other.

Demi will be back with more drama at some point and she’s probably just taking a break so she doesn’t have to deal with people yelling at her for daring to say negative things about Mariah. Maybe Demi should hire someone to vet her tweets, comments and Instagram posts. She gets publicity for it, but it’s often negative and this isn’t the first time she’s been stirring up sh*t on Instagram.

Update: Demi came back the very next evening, 6/20/16 because of course she did

    Ok, so that meme was funny but in all honesty, I’d rather be Ariana than Mariah. Mimi hasn’t been able to sing since 1997 and Ariana’s latest album is the best of her career.

    • Otaku Fairy says:

      I like Mariah’s earlier stuff better than Ariana’s music. Between these three she was definitely the best by far. Demi’s last two albums were pretty good. Ariana- I know this most recent album is selling really well, and there are a few decent pop songs on it, but it wasn’t exactly what I was hoping for. Even with the deluxe version. Hopefully on the next album she’ll do more ballads and use more of her range- not just the higher part. She should use her lower range and chest voice more. As far as style and visuals go, she’s probably one of the most boring pop stars of our time. And that duet she did on The Voice was shockingly underwhelming.

    So much angst. So much immaturity.

    SO much time on their hands.

    • MCraw says:

      Why announce when you quit social media? What a drama queen 🙄
      Just quit that bih if you really mean it. They really think the stuff they do is major. How silly.

    • Otaku Fairy says:

      I like her but her immaturity really shows here. Not saying she’s wrong about Mariah (but then again, Mariah doesn’t lick other people’s food and leave it for them to buy) but it was kind of silly for her to feel like she had to rush to Ariana’s defense over something so little. I think it’s best that if celebrities want to engage in these little fan wars like the rest of us, they should do it under an alias instead of with their actual identities if they don’t want the drama- but Demi probably wanted some extra publicity. With their real identities, they should only get involved if someone is saying something awful and just let the small stuff slide by (so that more serious complaints will be taken more seriously and it’s not ‘oh, so and so is just being a petty attention-seeker again and being drama). It would have been different if the person had said something misogynistic and shitty, but the meme is basically just saying that the person likes Mariah better.
      I don’t know if her ‘quitting twitter and instagram’ reaction is her responding to bad comments people left because she criticized a celebrity people like, or if she’s just overreacting to light criticism. But maybe it’s for the best that she leaves these sites.

  3. Ayra. says:

    I give her a week.

    Also, isn’t she the one that said that we shouldn’t pit women against each other? Does her words not apply to herself?

  4. meme says:

    this one is so annoying. she’s addicted to attention so I’m saying she’ll be back on both in a week, maybe less.

  5. Noname says:

    She’s her own worst enemy. She started a beef with Mariah to get attention.

  6. Runcmc says:

    Your idea is hilarious (hire someone to help with her tweets/Instagram messages) because there was a fairly recent South Park episode about this! It’s called “safe space” and they specifically call out Demi Lovato, among others. Check it out!

  7. Lucy says:

    I don’t even know how to describe her anymore. Nick must have the patience of a Saint to deal with a person like her.

    • Lynnie says:

      I don’t know why ,but I always get such a sweet vibe from him. So all this bad boy stuff he’s trying to do just gives me secondhand embarrassment lol. Anywho, he must be an amazing friend

  8. neelyo says:

    I love how she uses her mental health charity work as a shield against all negative feedback regarding anything else. Classy.

  9. Felice. says:

    She always does this but she can’t stay away. She has to know what people say about her.

  10. Cdoggy says:

    God, I hate Demi Lavato. When I’m having a bad day, I just watch her falling down at her concert over the pool and am reminded that I have so much to live for.

    Bye Felicia.

    • Skins says:

      Me too. She just annoys the heck out of me for some reason. Seems to think that the whole world hangs on her every word. Still b-list at best

    • QQ says:

      LMMFAO I don’t know why I’m laughing sooooo hard, Must be because I find her attention thirst and the fake strong gurrrlll personality but possibly still into shady things super tiring

      ..Also her speaking voice…

  11. lucy2 says:

    She was probably back on by the time you posted this. Every celeb who’s gotten in a huff and declared they were quitting was back very soon. I don’t know why any of them read the comments AT ALL. Post your stuff to promote what you want, and leave it there. I think Demi feeds on all the drama though, and certainly seems to stir it up herself too.

  12. Lex says:

    Ok, but the original poster of that meme totally did it as shade. Her comment was just as annoying as Demi’s. A plague on both your houses!

  13. Alex says:

    Someone probably took her accounts away. She’s legit started beef with so many people recently for NO reason. She’s supposed to be on tour! Step away from the keyboard

  14. Kelly says:

    She’s a drama queen who feeds off drama! What a pathetic baby to announce you’re quitting Twitter and Instagram! she is an annoying know it all who thinks she’s the first to do anything. She puts herself in feuds and makes insane comments just to get people to pay attention to her. She loves to stir things up but plays the ultimate victim when people respond back. It’s the old dish it but can’t take it person!

  15. serena says:

    She makes me laugh. Seriously, she write whatever she wants and doesn’t want to deal with the consequences… that’s not how it is girl. As a public figure, that much is expected instead she gets mad when people don’t agree with her (of course I’m not talking about trolls and such).

  16. Starkiller says:

    I’m lost. Why did she drag Jennifer Lopez into this?

  17. Susan says:

    Let’s start a petition to keep her off social media forever!

  18. Maria says:

    she is back lol

    well almost 24 hours!
