Lorde got a lot of backlash yesterday after referencing Whitney Houston in the caption for a photo of a bathtub.
She wrote, “And iiii will always love you.”Lorde deleted the photo and released the following statement via Instagram Stories, “Extremely extremely poorly chosen quote. I'm so sorry for offending anyone. I hadn't even put this together I was just excited to take a bath. I'm an idiot. Love Whitney forever and ever. Sorry again."
This is disgusting idk how people find it funny. Whitney was a legend. she was amazing. she was a queen. she was a strong black woman. I like lorde but this is truly disgusting pic.twitter.com/B5cR3tolaU— black female (@privsari) April 6, 2018
