Demi Lovato rape victims
Demi Lovato continues to speak her mind.
the 23-year-old singer had some strong sentiments after a judge denied Kesha‘s injunction against Dr. Luke, and decided to defend the blonde beauty.12
On Monday, the Sony producer took to Twitter to call out the TiK ToK singer for allegedly lying about her sexual abuse claims.
His recent twitter rants have only made Demi more passionate about speaking up.
Not long after Dr. Luke shared his side of the story on social media, the pop princess went on Instagram to pen a powerful post about victims of rape and sexual assault.
Levato shared a photo of the chilling statistics surrounding rapists being reported, tried, jailed, and falsely accused.
In the caption, she opened up about her recent statements regarding the controversial case, saying:
“As most people know, I tend to get fired up about the things I believe in, and although my heart and intentions are always in the right place, unfortunately sometimes my passion gets the best of me and causes me to say things that I probably shouldn’t say. And when doing so it takes away from the real reason I am speaking up in the first place.”
Lovato pointed out what’s really important about starting this conversation, writing:
“Our focus should be on the topic of victims of sexual and physical abuse being afraid to come forward with their stories. They’re more likely to face retaliation and harassment than to see justice being served. Especially women. It baffles me that when it comes to serious issues like equality and abuse, too often women are not taken as seriously as men.”
The inspiring artist also appeared to address the recent shade she seemed to throw at Taylor Swift and her hefty financial contribution to the 28-year-old, adding:
“All I want to see is women coming together and actually making a difference. A real change and shift in society. Everyone has their own way of giving support to others , and at the end of the day, helping victims is all that matters.”
She finished her poignant post by drawing the attention back to the real issue at hand, penning:
“Ultimately, the message I want people to hear is it’s okay to come forward with your abuse and if you do decide to take action, you are not alone.”
Take something to Capitol Hill or actually speak out about something and then I'll be impressed.
