As celebrities and Lovato fans gather round to show support to recuperating celebrity, Demi Lovato, who allegedly overdosed on hard drugs and had to be rushed to the hospital, Twitter users, used this as a reminder that everyone needs love and support when dealing with addictions like this, not just celebrities.
Of course it’s sad what’s happened to Demi Lovato but literally no one has this same energy when it’s a nobody who has a drug problem, they just get labelled junkies and crackheads

Demi Lovato: overdoses on heroine they pray and tell her to be strong
Regular person: you are weak minded, it's your own fault
Society is damaged

All these girls saying Demi Lovato is strong and saying addiction is a disease are the exact same girls that like tweets saying 'anyone that needs to take drugs to have a good time is a mug', just because it's a celebrity doesn't make it ok.

It's okay to support Demi Lovato struggling with heroine and coke but also, show love to your hood niggas who aren't celebrities and help them quit.

*celebrity dies from suicide or overdose*

*demi lovato speaks up repeatedly on battling eating disorders and trying to get sober*

Demi Lovato clearly has an addiction and everyone is supporting her because she way up there. Addiction is now treated like a disease when we know it's a choice, but we only remember that when it's a random person. I pray she gets well though.

In expressing their amazement at how people respond when a regular person has similar struggles with celebrities, the resonating message in virtually all the tweets remains, “don’t be judgemental of the regular person going through similar challenges”.
