Last night on “The X Factor” the show’s producer played a pretty insensitive joke on Demi Lovato. Knowing full well that she’s been in and out of rehab, they played a prank on her where they digitally altered her drink to make it look like she was drinking "annoying juice." 

During the clip, Demi can be heard saying to Kelly Rowland, “that’s so f*cked up.”

A source very close to Demi told Hollyscoop that Demi wasn’t messing around; she’s really upset about the joke.

“She is very upset about this. She has spoken to producers as well as Simon because this was unusually cruel. Demi is outspoken about her addiction issues and this was way out of line,” said the source.

Demi even thinks they played the joke on purpose out of spite because she’s quitting the show.

“[Demi] is not happy and feels that ["The X Factor"] owes her a public apology,” added the source.
