However, fans didn’t find the “Bank Account” rapper’s detainment humorous and they quickly brought up Demi’s substance abuse addiction, her 2018 overdose, and her subsequent rehab stint in retaliation. “If you're gonna come at me for making a joke, try coming at me with something original not involving drugs,” she fired back at them.

Rapper Wale even chimed in on the conversation. “Why is somebody‘s freedom funny?” he asked her. “I don’t get the joke.”
