Demi Lovato may have posted an apology for her Israel visit last week on her Instagram account, but her mother, Dianna De La Garza, who accompanied the singing star on the trip, posted on Instagram that she would “unapologetically go again one day.”

“Praying at the Western Wall with my beautiful daughter @ddlovato in the Old City of Jerusalem was the highlight of my trip to Israel,” De La Garza wrote on Friday next to a photo of her hand and her daughter’s pressed against the stones of the Western Wall. “I will never forget that day… or that trip as we celebrated life and Christianity as we learned about the Jewish faith while listening to the Muslim call to prayer. There was no fighting, no judgement, no cruel words… only love. And I will undoubtedly, unapologetically go again one day.”

This was followed by several hashtags.


As of Sunday morning, the post had over 31,000 likes.

While the singer’s mother may literally have stood with her daughter at the Wall and on the trip, the last hashtag, #istandwithdemi, is ironic, given that Lovato posted (and then deleted) an apology to those she may have offended – presumably BDS activists and others who criticized her for ignoring the Israel-Palestinian conflict and posting enthusiastically about what she saw and felt in Israel.
