Demi Lovato Apologizes for Trip to Israel After Intense Backlash

Demi Lovato is the latest victim of our "woke" culture.

Lovato wrote in a since-deleted post she is "extremely frustrated" after seeing social media users criticize her for her recent trip to Israel, where she was baptized in the Jordan River.

The 27-year-old entertainer, who was hospitalized last summer after suffering a severe drug overdose, documented her journey to the Holy Land on Instagram, sharing photos of her baptism. Lovato said she has "never felt such a sense of spirituality or connection to God."

I am an American singer. I was raised Christian and have Jewish ancestors. When I was offered an amazing opportunity to visit the places I'd read about in the Bible growing up, I said yes. There is something absolutely magical about Israel. I've never felt such a sense of spirituality or connection to God...something I've been missing for a few years now. Spirituality is so important to be baptized in the Jordan river – the same place Jesus was baptized – I've never felt more renewed in my life. This trip has been so important for my well-being, my heart, and my soul. I'm grateful for the memories made and the opportunity to be able to fill the God-sized hole in my heart. Thank you for having me, Israel
