Wale Kindly Claps Back At Demi Lovato After She Appeared To Mock 21 Savage

"I don't kick people when they down..."

Wale may have just provided the kindest clap back of 2019. The D.C. artist was forced to put Demi Lovato in her place after the pop singer appeared to mock 21 Savage on social media on Sunday (Feb. 3).

It all started when Lovato posted and deleted a comment about the memes that poked fun at 21 Savage's recent arrest by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (I.C.E.). "So far 21 Savage memes have been my favorite part of the Super Bowl," Lovato reportedly wrote at the time.

Not amused by her tweet, Wale quickly responded: "Why is somebody freedom funny ... I don’t get the joke." Offset and Sid the Kid also appeared to take aim at Demi. "All the memes and sh*t ain't funny when somebody going through some. Praying for my dawg. Ain't sh*t funny. His family depending on him," Offset tweeted.

It didn't stop there though. The Shade Room caught the two exchanging more words on Instagram. "Wale just salty I never responded to his desperate tweets years ago," Lovato snapped.

While the "Sorry Not Sorry" singer's comment might have been grounds for an equally nasty response, Wale chose to keep it classy, saying that he was praying for her wellbeing. "Still ain't gon disrespect you... Still praying for you Demi," he wrote, referencing Lovato's 2018 overdose on Oxycodone and fentanyl.  "Hopefully you seen the ones providing comfort and prayer when you were down. I don't kick people when they down. Go queen."

Although she didn't respond directly to Wale, Lovato seemed to have a change of heart. After receiving backlash from a number of other fans, she posted a message on her Instagram Stories explaining her side of the story. "Wasn't laughing at anyone getting deported," she said in reference to 21 Savage. I know that's not a joke... The meme I posted/was talking about was of him being writing with a feather pen. Sorry if I offended anyone. But it's no excuse to laugh at someone's addiction let alone their OD."

The "Everybody Dies" rapper's bloody teaser track serves as the first look into the album's vibe, accompanying a haunting new video where Logic is seen bleeding out from a neck injury as he raps, smokes and loads a gun. The track, which urges listeners to put their "ego on the shelf," is a lyrical experience that comments on drug use, suicide, depression, and the expectation from others that ruin one's self-esteem.

Ex-Cop Pleads To Manslaughter After Leaving Toddler In Hot Car To Have Sex

Former Mississippi cop Cassie Baker may spend 20 years behind bars for leaving her toddler in the backseat of a police cruiser while she had sex with her supervisor.

Little Cheyenne's body temperature rose to a scorching 107 degrees before she died on Sept. 30, 2016. When Baker returned to the vehicle four hours later, Cheyenne was unresponsive. Baker, 29, pled guilty to manslaughter in a reduced plea deal Monday. (March 18) It's unclear if she intentionally left her 3-year-old in the backseat of the car.

“I don’t know what I could ever do to you that could be worse than what you’ve already experienced,” Harrison County Circuit Judge Larry Bourgeois told her. “You will forever be entombed in a prison of your own mind.”

Cheyenne's father says he's still tormented by his daughter's death and often pictures her final moments.

“Every time I close my eyes, I picture her suffering, and then I picture her laying in this coffin,” Ryan Hyer said Monday. “I still see her smiling and laughing in my head, and I would assume that smile and laughter turned to pain and suffering in that instance.”

Baker and her supervisor Clark Ladner were fired days later. While speaking with the Associated Press, he was able to avoid charges after telling authorities he was unaware Baker's daughter was in the car. Judge Bourgeois will consider the prosecution recommendation at Baker's April 1 sentencing.
