Lorde has apologised after fans criticised her for a comment she made about autoimmune disease in a recent interview.
Speaking to The Guardian, Lorde said "It’s like having a friend with very specific allergies. There are certain places you can’t go together. Certain things you can’t do.”
Although she didn't directly mention Taylor Swift, fans assumed that's who she was refering to.
“There are these different sets of considerations within the friendship,” Lorde continued. “It’s like having a friend with an autoimmune disease.”
It seems fans were hitting out at her as, Selena Gomez, also one of Taylor's friends, has the autoimmune disease lupus.
After a one follower mentioned this on Twitter, Lorde apologised.
