Demi Lovato Defends Lauren Jauregui for Lighting Joint & Posting it on Insta

By  | 

Lauren Jauregui got in legal trouble in December 2016 after she was caught with marijuana in her bag at an airport, but she didn’t let that little snafu stop her from continuing to use the drug, which, FYI, is legal in several states, including California.

The 21-year-old posted a picture of herself lighting what appears to be a joint on Instagram yesterday and captioned it, “In my elements.”

While she technically didn’t do anything wrong if she was in Cali like it seems, some people still criticized her for ~promoting drug use~ to her 5.6 million IG followers.

“I love you no matter what, I just hope you know what you’re doing,” someone commented.

Another person added, “And this picture is for… What? To show that smoking is bad or good?”

Demi Lovato, however, jumped in to defend the “Strangers” singer.

She first simply commented, “stunning,” but when she realized how much hate Lauren was getting she added, “Y’all stop telling her what to do and what not to do. Girl live your life.”
