Demi Lovato has been dragged on social media after sharing her thoughts on the news of DMX's drug overdose.
The Dancing With The Devil hitmaker shared that DMX's condition is giving her "survivor's guilt". The stunner had also nearly died in 2018 from drugs.
The legendary US rapper has been on life support in hospital since last week. He reportedly suffered a heart attack after overdosing on drugs.
Page Six reports that Demi spoke to TMZ Live on Wednesday. According to the publication, Demi said:
"There’s times I’ve felt, like, feeling survivor’s guilt. You do ask yourself, ‘Why am I still here, why are others not?’ It’s challenging. I have to realise that every day is a day that someone else doesn’t get."
She added that having survived a drug overdose made her want to live the best life she can possibly have "knowing others didn’t get the chance".
Tweeps slammed her for allegedly making everything about herself. Check out some of the comments below:
"Her ability to make everything about her is unmatched."
"I wish she'd shut up already!!! It's getting old!! No! Over it!"
"Lol... I love the new ways she finds to make a story about herself daily."
"Demi is so tiring. I will get hate, but she loves playing the victim card and getting the attention. We all have struggles and traumas, deal with them as we all do."
Some tweeps defended Demi from tweeps who dragged her. They claimed she was asked to comment on DMX's situation.
"Since absolutely none of you read... Demi was asked about what she thought about the situation. She didn't just bring it up and make the comparison on her own. IDK why the hell they're even asking this girl about it, but okay."
