Whoa! This might be the wildest Hollywood Twitter feud yet! Kathy Griffin slammed Demi Lovato during a Twitter chat with fans on March 25, and within no time the ‘Heart Attack’ singer was firing back.
Kathy Griffin, 53, had no problem going in on Demi Lovato, 21, and letting all her fans know exactly how she feels about the singer on March 25. A Twitter chat got decidedly out of hand when a fan asked Kathy who the “biggest douche celebrity” was and with one swift tweet, the D-List comedian started a war with Demi and her fans, the Lovatics.
Kathy Griffin Calls Demi Lovato The ‘Biggest Celebrity Douche’
Without any hesitation the 53-year-old responded to her fan’s question and tweeted back:
Probably Debbie Lovato Plus she should calm the f down bout Lady Gaga gettin barfed onRT @SamRedgrove: biggest douche celebrity you’ve met?

It’s hard to say what the bigger diss is: Kathy calling Demi the D-word, or Kathy not even knowing Demi’s real name!
Demi Lovato & Fans Fight Back
It didn’t take long for the pop singer to retaliate on Twitter. In response she tweeted a snap of herself with her tongue sticking out, presumably at Kathy who was in the background, along with the caption, “only a ‘douche’ to people I can’t stand.” Burn!
Kathy then retweeted the picture immediately saying, “Haha THIS is a funny pic!”
Demi’s fan base also really rushed to defend her — and they may have gone overboard. Many Lovatics began tweeting at Kathy calling her things way worse than “douche” and telling her to kill herself. It got so bad that Demi eventually had to step in to play peacemaker, and point out that what they were doing was just as bad as what Kathy did:
I love you guys so much but y’all gotta chill with sending hate towards other people. Regardless of what they say or do.. The cruel things some of you are saying can really, REALLY hurt people. It’s called cyber-bullying and somethings should NEVER be wished upon EVER. No matter WHAT. It makes me so sad to see how mean people can really be after all I’ve spoken out about anti-bullying. Be an example for other haters. I know my #Lovatics are better than that. I really appreciate you guys always having my back but this is going way too far. Please spread ✌️not hate….
Well one thing’s clear now — Demi and Kathy are not going to be friends anytime! Now tell us HollywoodLifers, are you team Kathy or team Demi?
