Lorde posted a photo of her bath tub on Instagram with the caption “and iii will always love you”, in reference to Whitney’s iconic song of the same name – but fans were quick to point out that it was insensitive given that Whitney died in the bathtub of a Hollywood hotel in 2012.
Accidental it might have been, but we're pretty sure Lorde will definitely not be making that mistake again after the backlash.
This is disgusting idk how people find it funny. Whitney was a legend. she was amazing. she was a queen. she was a strong black woman. I like lorde but this is truly disgusting pic.twitter.com/B5cR3tolaU— black female (@privsari) April 6, 2018
I refuse to believe Lorde would joke about Whitney’s death. She had to have posted that without realizing— x (@xio_1D) April 6, 2018
To all the people saying Lorde is cancelled bc of insta pic of the bath and the Whitney lyrics caption... people do stuff like that ALL THE TIME it was obvs just a very bad coincidence and i genuinely don’t think Lorde would do that purposefully...— Elliott (@ouhoooh) April 6, 2018
