When Lorde (presumably) got out of the bath and checked her phone, she immediately deleted the post and took to her Instagram story to apologise. Or so thinks the Internet.

Kiwi pop star Lorde has been blasted for a social media post that referenced the late USA singer Whitney Houston.

In 2012, Houston was found dead at the Beverly Hilton hotel after drowning in the bathtub.

Haters have taken to Twitter to air their concerns about the insensitive post, many saying Lorde is completely disrespectful and "canceled", while fans defend the "Green Light" singer, believing it was not her intention to make fun of Houston's death with the post.

"Delete this NOW!' Lorde (pictured) faced a fan backlash on Thursday after sharing a picture of a bathtub alongside the lyrics 'I will always love you".

"Extremely, extremely poorly chosen quote", she wrote.

Others accused Lorde - who was 15 years old when Whitney Houston died - of being "shady".

"Lorde is probably sitting in the tub not realizing what she just did" one user tweeted.

The Kiwi singer is still on her North American tour.

"I'm so sorry for offending anyone - I hadn't even put this together I was just excited to take a bath. Love Whitney forever and ever".

Three years later, her daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, spent six months in a coma after being found face down in a bathtub at home in Georgia.
