Echoing Republican candidate Donald Trump’s lewd recording from 2005, the singer reportedly joked: “Sometimes you just have to agree to disagree and grab some pussy.”
“Someone take my twitter away from me,” she wrote afterwards.
But most of her fans didn’t seem to mind, saying it was a funny joke and that people need to “lighten up”.
While the original tweet has been deleted, her followers were quick to respond with screenshots of the alleged offending gaffe

Earlier today, she shared a snap of her and Clinton at a campaign rally in Iowa City back in January.
