Demi Lovato has warned her fans to stop cyber-bullying Kathy Griffin.
A Twitter feud erupted between the women this week after Kathy called Demi a “douche” on the micro-blog.
Fans of the singer were quick to retaliate, sending the funnywoman a barrage of messages, including urging her to commit suicide.
The messages, many retweeted by Kathy, became so hateful Demi eventually had to step in.
In a lengthy message to her followers on Tuesday, she wrote: “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 [peace] not hate...." she wrote (sic).
Demi also took a moment to address Kathy directly. The pop star apologised publicly on the website for the cruel messages her so-called “Lovatics” sent the comedienne.
“@kathygriffin no one should ever wish those things upon ANYONE. I apologize on others behalf. I do NOT approve of that at all. Sorry 4 that,” Demi wrote.
The so-called feud between the women appeared to erupt during a chat earlier this week on Twitter after Kathy was asked to name the “biggest douche celebrity”.
"Probably [Demi] Lovato," the redhead wrote, according to E! News. The tweet has since been deleted.
Demi responded by tweeting a selfie that showed her sticking her tongue out as Kathy stood in the background.
"Only a 'douche' to people I can't stand,” she reportedly captioned the photo.
That tweet has also since been deleted.
