The singer had been reading up on the Middle Eastern conflict online when she clicked a link. After realising her error, she deleted the tweet.

She posted another tweet with a picture on Wednesday morning, saying: “Let’s pray for peace and a swift end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict! Is there any hope?”
