Demi Lovato is sticking a certain finger at Vladimir Putin.
While performing her gay anthem Really Don’t Care at New York City’s gay pride Demi gave a special shout out to the Russian president. Demi had two of her male background dancers kiss with one of them using a photo of Putin to cover his genitals. Putin is famous taking a stance against gay rights.
And while the audience went crazy, some people were not impressed. Not since Britney and Madonna, has a kiss caused this much controversy. Russian fans of Demi slammed the Heartattack singer, taking to Twitter to tweet their disapproval of Demi’s stunt. The hashtags #DemiRespectRussia #StayStrongPutin and #DemiHurtsRussianLovatics were all used to bash Demi.
But like her song says, Demi really doesn’t care. She took to her Twitter to discuss the incident.
It’s been a busy week for Demi on Twitter. She recently unfollowed Selena Gomez which many believe is the end of their friendship. Demi also tweeted, then deleted this meme.
Many people believe that the tweet was meant for Selena.
The Twitter drama continues for Demi. Yesterday someone hacked Demi’s boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama’s Twitter account. Someone tweeted nude photos of Demi and cartoon image calling her “fat as f–k” from Wilmer’s account. Could the Twitter attack be related to Demi’s Putin diss? Who knows, but don’t listen to the haters Demi, you’re fabulous.
