PewDiePie Posts Insensitive Meme About Demi Lovato’s Alleged Overdose
PewDiePie has been canceled, like, a million times at this point, but he still continues to
be one of the worst humans on the planet make stupid AF decisions that make us question if he, ya know, has any moral compass. The 28-year-old could’ve joined the likes of Ariana Grande, Justin Timberlake and Shawn Mendes by wishing Demi Lovato well after her alleged overdose, but instead he decided to make light of the terrifying situation and post a literal meme about her drug use.
The YouTube, whose real name is Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, shared an insensitive image to his almost 18 million Twitter followers that shows the 25-year-old asking her mom for money to buy a burger, but instead using it to buy heroin.
The gamer was rightfully slammed by both D.Lo and his own fans who told him just how disgusting and inappropriate the post was.
come on bro, this is making light of something that a lot of humanity struggles with day in and day out, and countless families have been torn apart by it. Offensive humor for the sake of offensiveness isn’t edgy, it’s just lazy and destructive.

Clearly you knew of the situation, unless you really are living under a rock. Smarten up.

you keep apologizing for doing offensive and insensitive things and then continue to do offensive things. the situation was blasted all over social media. longtime fan but you clearly have no real remorse for the things you put out there nowadays and that's not okay.

Wait a minute, so Pewdiepie criticized Logan Paul for being insensitive (which he is) yet made fun of Demi Lovato who overdosed on drugs and struggles with addiction. LMFAO what a hypocrite. He's over and never started. #PewdiepieIsOverParty

It’s pathetic that people are making fun of Demi Lovato. She has done nothing but help countless people and use her platform for real issues for the last 6 years. She’s saved so many damn people, including me. Put some damn respect on her name. #PewdiepieisOverParty

Pewds eventually realized his mistake and deleted the meme and apologized for posting it in the first place.
“Deleted meme. I didnt mean anything with it and I didnt fully know about the situation,” he tweeted. “I realize now it was insensitive, sorry!”

Seeing as the news of Demi’s hospitalization has legit been taking over the internet since it happened on Tuesday, we have a hard time believing that he, a literal internet star, “didn’t fully know about the situation.” K THANKS BYE!
