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."

The “Royals” singer is currently touring with hip-hop duo Run the Jewels and recently played Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, where she covered St. Vincent’s 2017 hit, “New York,” with Jack Antonoff. 

St. Vincent later tweeted about the rendition, saying it brought her to tears.
