While Lorde did not do it on purpose, with millions of people following her posts on Twitter and Instagram, she managed to piss off many people after posting a bathtub picture.
How can a picture of a bathtub posted by Lorde can cause so much trouble you may ask, and after seeing it, all becomes clear.
Lorde remained sweet hearted and apologized when she understood how offensive her post was, but the damage was already done.
So let's get down to business and see how this bizarre story unfolded.
It is indeed out of character for her to upset millions around the world, but at least one thing we can tell for certain. She did not see this one coming.
She liked the idea of bathtub relaxation so much, she even uploaded the picture on
her Instagram account. So far, so good, so what was so upsetting with this post?
The problem was the caption:
This started an outrage and the internet lost their mind with anger with the connection to Whitney Houston and a bathtub.
For those of you who lived on the moon in 2012, on February 11, Houston was found unconscious in Suite 434 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, submerged in the bathtub.
Many people found the connection out of place and rude.
"Extremely extremely poorly chosen quote," she wrote. "I'm so sorry for offending anyone — I hadn't even put this together I was just excited to take a bath. I'm an idiot. Love Whitney forever and ever. Sorry again."
In the end, it was the wrong quote at the wrong time, but how can you stay mad at someone who was unaware of his mistakes and felt bad and apologies immediately after?
This mistake of posting something tactless in hindsight could have happened to anyone, you could have posted the same thing.
Her fans think she is very down to earth, that Lorde is not different than any other guy you meet on the street, and her reaction proves it.
