Demi Lovato Shocked at Insensitive X Factor Drinking Joke

Dec 20, 2013 -- 1:33am

Demi Lovato was shocked and appalled at an insensitive segment on Thursday’s “X Factor” finale.


The show featured a digitally-altered compilation of clips showing the singer supposedly drinking a mysterious substance — a bizarre move given the judge’s public struggles with drugs and drinking.

The drink was “revealed” to be “Annoying Juice,” the supposed reason why Lovato frequently bickers with Simon Cowell.

Lovato looked furious as the intended joke fell flat, and could be seen mouthing, “That was f**ked up.”

Asked for her thoughts by Mario Lopez afterwards, the put-on-the-spot singer said through a forced smile, “I think it’s very, very clear since I don’t drink anymore ‘Annoying Juice’ has become my new drink and I love it because I get to annoy Simon with it.”


Start at 25- second mark.
