Demi Lovato’s comments about 21 Savage’s memes being funny has landed her in hot water on social media. This is following the arrest of 21 Savage, whose real name is Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, on Sunday by the US immigration for reportedly overstaying his visa. 

The 'Bank Account' hitmaker is allegedly in the process of being deported back to the UK.  21 Savage entered  the US from the UK as a teenager in 2005, was convicted on felony drug charges in Georgia in 2014, and was arrested on Sunday as part of a targeted operation with the cooperation of local law enforcement.

News of 21 Savage's arrest spread like wildfire on social media, with some posting message of support for the rapper, while others created memes poking fun at the situation.

The 'Sorry Not Sorry' star's attempts to defend herself seem to be in vain as the Twitter storm continued raging.
