Demi Lovato is speaking out against cyberbullies after U.K. television host Caroline Flack's sudden death over the weekend. The "Anyone" singer took to social media on Monday night to ask fans to "be kind" to one another and wishing the former "Love Island" host peace in the after-life. Caroline Flack's body was found in her London apartment on Saturday, with several outlets reporting she took her own life. Since her passing, Caroline Flack's friends have been addressing issues of bullying with some pointing the finger at ITV, the network that runs "Love Island," for their alleged lack of support after she was charged with assault in December 2019 stemming from an alleged fight with her tennis star boyfriend, Lewis Burton.

Former One Directioner Niall Horan took to Twitter following her death to hit back at British tabloids, putting direct blame on them for how they treated Caroline Flack in the press following the alleged incident. Stating, "Tabloids will never hold themselves accountable in any shape or form for any death," he continued, "That’s our actual friend, a person. Because she is talented and famous she automatically gets treated differently by society and in turn the tabloids and social media. The outcome is society’s fault." Rita Ora dedicated a post to her dear friend following her passing and asked friends, "Let’s put a stop to public humiliation, shaming and bullying from the media. Let’s stop targeting young people. Let’s stand together and use social media more responsibly. Let’s think before we type."
