All the Dramatic Times Demi Lovato, Quote-Unquote, Quit Twitter
Demi Lovato‘s own words get her into a lot of hot water. In recent months, she was hit with a ton of backlash after making an offensive comment about her own mental illness, saying a racist quote about her ex-boyfriends, starting an awkward feud with Nicki Minaj… Honestly, we could keep going on and on, but we’ll settle for the latest drama.
Recently, the 23-year-old “Stone Cold” singer was on the receiving end of major criticism for starting drama over a literal meme that had nothing to do with her. Because of the haterade sent her way, she quit Twitter… for 24 hours. And it wasn’t even the first time she claimed she would step away from the social media site. Here’s a breakdown of all the dramatic times Demi Lovato, quote-unquote, quit Twitter:
In 2010, when she disappointed her fans. Supposedly, the Disney Channel alum was meant to show up at a meet-and-greet with the Jonas Brothers. Instead, though, the JoBros made an appearance, but D.Lo ended up partying with We the Kings guitarist Travis Clark. According to one fan, Demi said, “I don’t feel like meeting fans.” Naturally, this led to outrage, which led to the Demster’s first ~break~ from her account:

She entered rehab shortly after.
In 2012, post-Sonny with a Chance. Some believe it was a potential coverup for another stint in rehab, but that was never proven.
Twitter break. It's for the best actually. Who allows me to have this thing anyways?!!! I just get myself in trouble! Haha. Anyway… BYE!

In 2013, when she experienced yet another heartbreak. There’s been talk that this one during one of the times she broke up with longtime love Wilmer Valderrama.
Blehh. I really love my fans but I hate gossip sites… Gonna take a breather from twitter.. I love y'all!

In 2016, after she talked smack about Mariah Carey. There’s a meme going around that insinuates Ariana Grande is the cheap version of the elder diva. So when Demi got a hold of it, she informed the world that the viral picture is far from the truth, igniting an unnecessary war with Mimi’s fandom. She didn’t understand the negative reactions to her honesty.
Damn I gotta quit sayin shit. Bye Twitter

She quickly made her return a day later,
warning saying, “F*ck this.. I’m back bitches. And I’m coming back more honest than ever,” and:
I love my Lovatics too much to leave them over some lame ass haters.. What was I thinking?!
— Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) June 22, 2016
TBH, everyone saw that coming — her exits really have lost their effect.
Demi Lovato’s not the first and only celebrity to “quit” Twitter:
After paparazzi photos surfaced of the Aussie rapper in a bikini while on vacation in Hawaii, she received some rather unflattering comments on Twitter. Needless to say, she. Was. Fuming. "Just got back from a great vacation, came online and saw apparently it's shocking and unheard of to be a woman and have cellulite. I just want to have peace and relaxation time without a [perv] with a long-distance lens hiding out taking pictures. Everyone deserves peace."
She continued to say that her management team would run her account, but not before adding, "The Internet is the ugliest reflection of [mankind] there is."
