Celebrity feuds are pretty common, especially in the music industry. This may be why singer-songwriter Demi Lovato has something to say about the current beef between two powerful individuals, Donald Trump and Pope Francis!
The feud began when Pope Francis suggested that current U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump is not very devout due to Trump’s earlier claim that he would deport all undocumented immigrants and build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico to keep further illegal immigrants out. While he didn’t try to tell anybody how to vote, Pope Francis did say, “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. This is not the gospel.”
Trump, to the surprise of nobody, took issue with the words of the leader of the Catholic Church. Responding quickly, Trump said, “For a religious leader to question a person’s faith is disgraceful,” though he arguably ruined his point when he went on to suggest that the Mexican government was “using” Pope Francis for their own ends.
While there are plenty of opinions online about who is in the right and whose words were out of bounds, Demi Lovato thought to say what a lot of us were probably thinking: “How the f*ck does one get into a feud with the Pope..??”
How the fuck does one get into a feud with the Pope..??

While the answer is apparently “by being famous and more than a little offensive,” fans had their own answers, such as, “One must be Donald Trump. He is the only person who could, I think [sic],” and, “It’s Trump… He’d get into a fight with a loaf of bread if he felt it wasn’t good enough.” But the best response was easily this one, which is even funnier if the commenter was uninformed and serious: “Omg what did kanye do now. [sic]” Well done, Demi Lovato, for starting one hilarious conversation with a single tweet.
