Lorde is recieving some backlash after posting an Instagram that shows an image of a bathtub along with a caption that fans interpreted as being insulting to the late Whitney Houston. 

 

She captioned the photo, "and iii will always love you," a reference to Houston's iconic song. The legendary singer was found dead in 2012 at a Beverly Hills hotel room in a bathtub.

 

Lorde has since issued multiple apologies about the caption and deleted the photo, saying it wasn't her intention to insult the singer when she posted the picture.

"Extremely extremely poorly chosen quote," the 21-year-old said. "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."

 

Some of her followers said that it was extremely inappropriate while others claimed Lorde most likely had no intention of insulting Houston.

 

One Twitter user said, "don't think there's anything sadder than lorde being excited to take a bath on her day off, just to have the entire internet come after her for a short period of time because she used the wrong quote for the wrong occasion."

Extremely extremely poorly chosen quote. 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.
