    Lorde deleted the photo and ultimately issued an apology via Instagram Stories

    Lorde has a message for those offended by her recent Instagram post.

    The 21-year-old pop singer sparked backlash on Thursday after referencing the late Whitney Houston in the caption for a photo of a bathtub. "And iiii will always love you," Lorde wrote, alluding to the 1992 song made famous by Houston and featured in The Bodyguard.

    In 2012, Houston accidentally drowned in a hotel bathtub, the effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use contributing to her passing. Three years later, the singer's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, died in a similar manner.

    Lorde deleted the photo and ultimately issued the following statement via Instagram Stories.
