Demi Lovato roasted for saying she's making 'special' music about Trump mob's attack on US Capitol

Social media users are not impressed that pop star Demi Lovato is seemingly about to record a song inspired by the violent crowd of Donald Trump supporters who attacked the US Capitol this week.

The 'Sorry Not Sorry' hitmaker spoke out on Twitter as one of a growing chorus of people calling for a second impeachment of the current President over his role in inciting the mob to storm government buildings. 

"My heart is broken. It makes me so sad to believe how naive I was to think this couldn't possibly happen, and yet it did," said Lovato.

"Here we are. For everyone in my comments saying 'where's [your next album]' or wanting me to sing instead of speaking up about what needs to change in this country… THIS IS WHY I POST AS MUCH AS I DO. THIS IS WHY I CARE. THIS CANNOT HAPPEN ANY F**KING MORE.

"I'm angry, embarrassed and ashamed. I'm in the studio working on something special after today's assault on democracy."

She included a screenshot from the official Black Lives Matter (BLM) account and ended her message with the hashtag #ImpeachTrumpTonight.

Some fans are applauding Lovato's message - but others are not impressed.

"Who watched what happened today at Capitol Hill and went 'you know what would help? A new Demi Lovato song'," tweeted one person.

Another added: "Demi please no. This isn't the way to raise awareness. Creating another song won't help. You can bring awareness but don't use this as the opportunity to promote your own music. 

"Donate. Spread awareness. There's other ways you can help."

Far-right opinion website The Daily Wire responded to the idea of Lovato's song by mockingly stating "America will be united once and for all".

Other Twitter users simply used animated gifs and videos to poke fun at Lovato, earning thousands of likes and retweets.

The ridicule of Lovato's song idea comes after Gal Gadot was admonished for leading a group of celebrities in a cover of John Lennon's 'Imagine' during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns.

Last year, Lovato released an anti-Trump song entitled 'Commander in Chief'. In it, she asks the former reality TV star how he can sleep at night, singing: "We're in a state of crisis, people are dyin' / While you line your pockets deep."
