Demi Lovato was less than amused after an insensitive drinking joke about her aired on the season finale of X Factor on Thursday.
During the segment, Demi drinks a fictitious Annoying juice … the purported reason why she always bickered with Simon Cowell at the judges table.
But the joke – which is not right considering that the center of it is a recovering addict whose struggles with drugs and alcohol made headlines – did not sit down well with Demi, who looked visibly shocked and appalled while the segment aired.
She also reportedly mouthed, ‘That was f***ed up’ during the segment.
When asked by Mario Lopez about her thoughts about it, the singer managed to blurt out through a forced smile, ‘I think it’s very, very clear since I don’t drink anymore “Annoying Juice” has become my new drink and I love it because I get to annoy Simon with it.’
After the failed joke, Glee star Lea Michelle took the stage to perform (watch video).
