On Twitter Lovato joined the growing call to “#impeachtrumptonight,” while also promising to spin her sadness and anger into new reflective music. Alongside a screenshotted tweet from the official Black Lives Matter account, Demi writes, “My heart is broken. It makes me to sad to believe how naïve I was to think this couldn’t possibly happen, and yet it did. Here we are. For everyone in my comments saying 'where’s d7' or wanting me to sing instead of speaking up about what needs to change in this country...”
The screenshot from the Black Lives Matter Twitter reads, “So we all just gonna act like it’s ok that white folks are storming the Capitol with no police response! But when we protesting to save our damn lives the police beat the S*$T out of us. Come on y’all!”
In a second Tweet Demi continues to explain her disheartened angry state and shares, “THIS IS WHY I POST AS MUCH AS I DO. THIS IS WHY I CARE. THIS CANNOT HAPPEN ANY F***ING MORE. I’m angry, embarrassed, and ashamed. I’m in the studio working on something special after today’s assault on democracy.” The “Commander In Chief” singer concluded her tweets with “impeachtrumptonight.”
