(Radio.com) Demi Lovato caught some heat this weekend after posting a joke her mom made about the Zika virus on Snapchat. In the clip, Lovato's mom remarks, "Everybody down in Rio gonna get the Zika virus," as Lovato cracks up off camera. Soon after, Internet users were criticizing Lovato and her mom for making fun of a public health crisis.

Lovato later apologized, stressing that she wasn't mocking the Zika outbreak. "In no way did I mean to offend anyone last night. I was laughing at how southern my mom sounded, not the issue at hand. Deepest apologies," she tweeted.

Later, the singer returned to social media to tell her fans the haters aren't bringing her down. "It's an awesome feeling when you're so content with life and yourself that hate doesn't effect you. Feelin' good y'all," she posted. Read more here.
