Poot Lovato Recognized As Time Magazine’s ‘Fictional Person of the Year’
In October of this year, a rather unforgiving photo of Demi Lovato was transformed into a viral piece of fan-fic, and Poot Lovato was born.
Tumblr user “cstcrpt”, a now inactive user, described Poot as “Demi’s twin sister. She was locked in a basement her whole life. This picture was taken the first time she went outside.” Since then, Poot’s face has been photoshopped on any number of images, including on President Vladamir Putin, or shall we say President Vladamir “Pootin”.
Yesterday, Time Magazine included Poot as number 15 on Time’s Most Influential Fictional Characters of 2015. Although Demi has not commented, Cosmopolitan reported in October that Demi was not amused by the meme and tweeted…and then deleted: “Cool to see a shitty angle turn into a meme that circulates the Internet to people’s amusement ha.” Don’t worry Demi, I’m sure everyone will forget about Poot by 2016.
