Demi Lovato Tells Rude Fans: “Take Your Negativity Elsewhere”
Demi Lovato wrote an open letter to her fans on Tuesday following two separate incidents in which some resentful admirers yelled “rude things” because she didn’t stop to meet them. The singer explained, among other things, why she can’t always greet fans, and that their negativity is not appreciated.
Lovato attended the Honda Press Preview event on Tuesday, along with Nick Jonas, as part of New York Auto Show week. The two were on hand to announce they are headlining the 2016 Honda Civic Tour, which kicks off in June. Lovato later revealed on Twitter that she had a couple of contentious fan encounters at the function.
“I try my hardest to stop for as many fas as I possibly can before it gets too hectic or crazy,” the singer wrote. “No matter how long I’ve been doing this, sometimes the madness with the yelling and pushing becomes overwhelming and to avoid people either getting hurt or having more anxiety, I go inside hoping my fans will understand.”
Lovato went on to note that on Tuesday alone she “had two instances where I had rude things yelled at me because I didn’t stop for every single person.” She added, “When stuff like that happens it actually really sucks. It’s not okay and just remember, I’m used to getting hate but I’m human too. So please… Take your negativity elsewhere.” Lovato didn’t elaborate further about the specifics of the fan altercations, or what “rude things” were said. Gossip Cop has reached out to Lovato’s rep.
