A fan recently asked Demi about the ’funniest prank’ that she had ever pulled. She responded to the tweet on the morning of 3rd June.
"I hired a lady of the night in Vegas and send her to Max’s hotel room to surprise him. She walked into his room without permission and grabbed him in his ’area’ and he freaked the fuck out hahahaha," Lovato wrote in a tweet that has now been deleted.
The fans were shocked and disgusted as this is clearly an assault and not a prank. Recently movements like #Metoo and Time’s Up have gained a lot of momentum amongst people as they have started voicing their battles against assault. Just because it is against a man, doesn’t make it a prank. An assault is an assault and the fans expect Demi to realize her fault.
I swear I could tweet something about craving jelly beans and it would offend someone.— Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) June 3, 2018
For all of those coming at me rn, listen to the lyrics of Warrior and maybe you’ll have more compassion for someone who made a simple mistake. Of all people I know about sexual abuse. You don’t have to educate me.— Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) June 3, 2018
So sorry if anyone was offended ????— Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) June 3, 2018
Though rather than admitting that she is at fault, Demi decided to remove her tweet and tell her audience that she doesn’t need to be educated about assault as she herself is a survivor. Though she ended up apologizing in the end (kind of), we aren’t sure whether she truly realizes her fault or not.
Fans were more confused when her bodygaurd decided to tweet that he was all okay with Demi’s prank.
Really! You guys all need to ‘Grow Up’! It was a joke and a fun prank from someone whose incredible to work for and with. And does everything she can for her fans, family and friends. Love you @ddlovato— Max (@2Maxx22) June 3, 2018
