Demi Lovato Tweets Disney: "Eating Disorders Are Not Something to Joke About"
Publically speaking about struggling with an eating disorder, former Disney star Demi Lovato quickly sounded off on her Twitter after a not-so-funny joke was made on the network’s series Shake It Up regarding the serious issue.
“’I could just eat you up, well if I ate’ - Disney Chanel's Shake It Up.... What are we promoting here? #notfunnyATALL,” Demi immediately took to her Twitter after catching the episode on TV Friday.
Especially after the 19-year-old took a break from her career and sought treatment for her own battle with an eating disorder last year, Demi could not understand why Disney would joke about the matter.
“I find it really funny how a company can lose one of their actress' from the pressures of an EATING DISORDER and yet still make joke about,” Demi tweeted.
The Unbroken singer notices “actress’ getting THINNER AND THINNER,” and wants to make sure that weight issues are taken seriously.
“Dear Disney Channel, EATING DISORDERS ARE NOT SOMETHING TO JOKE ABOUT,” Demi reiterated.
And, to make sure nobody takes offense to her comments, Demi added, “Just clearing things up, I have nothing against any specific actress/actor or tv show.. Nor do I think there's anything wrong with girls.”
