"Actually speak out about something and then I'll be impressed."
--> You may well have seen the hashtag #FreeKesha trending on and off for the past few days in relation to the American singer who is currently undergoing a legal battle with Dr Luke, a producer she alleges physically and sexually abused her for years.
Many stars have taken to Twitter to discuss the case including Demi Lovato who posted this to show her support of Kesha.
However on Sunday she weighed in on the situation, highlighting her frustration.
Frustrating to see women come forward with their past only to be shot down, not believed & disrespected for their bravery in taking action— Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) February 21, 2016
--> Quite a lot of people thought Lovato was throwing shade at Taylor Swift in these tweets for not publicly declaring her support for the singer
I'm also ready for self-proclaimed feminists to start speaking out or taking action for women's rights.— Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) February 21, 2016

The 'Cool For The Summer' star then went on to like this tweet referencing Taylor's silence
The tweet has since been unliked and Demi adressed the allegations that she was making this 'all about herself.' (Warning: Strong Language)
Continuing to say that she didn't shade anyone, it's just been interpreted that way
Kesha's mum then revealed that Taylor has donated $250,000 as a sign of support
Taylor Swift has just generously donated $250,000. to Kesha, as a show of support during this difficult time.AMAZING!!— keshas mom (@grannywrapper) February 22, 2016
Following the news of Taylor's donation, Demi liked this tweet saying it's not all about the money
She followed by tweeting that she'd be more interested to see people actually speak out about the matter.
Take something to Capitol Hill or actually speak out about something and then I'll be impressed.— Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) February 22, 2016
