Demi Lovato took to Twitter on Tuesday night to apologize to Kathy Griffin after the comedienne was barraged with hateful tweets for dissing the singer.

As Gossip Cop reported earlier, “Lovatics” attacked Griffin on the social media site after she said Lovato was the “biggest douche celebrity” she’s ever met. Among the insults were tweets telling Griffin to commit suicide, while others said she should be murdered.

Lovato made clear she does NOT support the incendiary remarks. She tweeted to Griffin, “@kathygriffin no one should ever wish those things upon ANYONE. I apologize on others behalf. I do NOT approve of that at all. Sorry 4 that.” Lovato also posted a lengthy message to her fans, encouraging them to “chill.”

The former “X Factor” judge wrote:

“I love you guys so much but y’all gotta chill with sending hate towards other people. Regardless of what they say or do.. The cruel things some of you are saying can really, REALLY hurt people. It’s called cyber-bullying and somethings should NEVER be wished upon EVER. No matter WHAT. It makes me so sad to see how mean people can really be after all I’ve spoken out about anti-bullying. Be an example for other haters. I know my #Lovatics are better than that. I really appreciate you guys always having my back but this is going way too far. Please spread [peace] not hate…. :-( :-( :-(”

And with that, hopefully the Great Lovato-Griffin Feud of 2014 is over.
