Lorde sends inspiring letter and cupcakes to X Factor New Zealand's Joe Irvine

Lorde has sent an inspiring letter and made cupcakes for X Factor New Zealand's Joe Irvine.

The singer gained international attention this week after being slated by judges Natalia Kills and husband Willy Moon on Sunday (March 15).

The duo were subsequently sacked after being accused of bullying Irvine.

A number of big names such as Ed Sheeran and Ellie Goulding have spoken out in support of the contestant.

New Zealander Lorde has now sent an inspiring letter to Irvine - as well as cupcakes - to comfort the singer.

The X Factor man posted online an image of the message, which read:

"Just wanted to say - your individuality, positive energy and spirit are infectious. I think you're doing an awesome job on the show so far.

"I'm a performer too and I wanted to say that no matter how many people make fun of me for how I dress, move and act - I'm being me and that's what's important. Good luck, and lots of love."

The cupcakes meanwhile appear to say 'Keep being Joe'.
