Following outrage from fans over what some said was insensitive, New Zealand songstress Lorde has apologized for posting a photo of a bathtub with Whitney Houston lyrics as the caption.
"And iiii will always love you," the post read, alongside a picture of a bathtub.
The posting brought back instant memories of Whitney Houston 2012 drowning death in a bathtub. Fans of the late icon were quick to point out the Lorde's mistake.
“Hey @lorde uh might not want to post a picture of a full bath tub with a Whitney Houston lyric,” one person posted.
"Of all the songs by all the singers in the world, Lorde had to caption a picture of her bathtub with Whitney Houston lyrics," was another.
On Thursday, Lorde apologized and tried to explain, saying: "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."
She continued, "I'm an idiot. Love Whitney forever and ever. Sorry again."
St. Vincent later tweeted about the rendition, saying it brought her to tears.
