Demi Lovato is quitting Twitter and Instagram after Internet users went into an uproar over some comments regarding Mariah Carey and a slew of other pop divas.

Here's the backstory: Late last week, the "Stone Cold" singer went to Instagram to defend Ariana Grande from a meme that essentially called the Dangerous Woman a lesser version of Mariah Carey. Lovato then took it a step further to explain herself, saying, "Mariah is a legend and is so talented but consistently disses people… It's nasty the way she treats Jennifer," referring to how Carey seems to continuously poke fun at once infamously saying she didn't know Jennifer Lopez. Demi said that J.Lo is "classy," but Mariah is "unnecessarily rude." Got it? K.

Those comments blew up social media and likely had Mariah's loyal fanbase in a tizzy. Today, June 21, Demi announced she was leaving Twitter and Instagram, alluding to the fact she's doing it because she spoke out on it.

Before signing off, Demi did make the brilliant point that she consistently uses her star power and social media for good, but that's not what people focus on:

Tell 'em, girl.

Demi mentioned that she's staying on Snapchat, because she "doesn't have to see what some of y'all say." Follow her at @theddlovato.
