Demi Lovato Goes Off on Disney for Eating Disorder Joke

by at . Comments

The folks at Disney forced Demi Lovato out of the Christmas spirit last night.

The former star of Sonny With a Chance - who left that series earlier this year to battle personal problems that included an eating disorder - took MAJOR exception to a joke on the Disney Channel show Shake It Up this week, as a character quipped:

"I could just eat you up, well if I ate."

The line promoted the following Tweets from Lovato:

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 that very disease...

And is it just me or are the actress' [on Disney Channel] getting THINNER AND THINNER.... I miss the days of RAVEN, and LIZZIE MCGUIRE...

Dear Disney Channel, EATING DISORDERS ARE NOT SOMETHING TO JOKE ABOUT.

The network, meanwhile, has actually responded and agreed with Lovato, releasing the following statement:

"We hear you & are pulling both episodes as quickly as possible & reevaluating them ... It’s NEVER our intention to make light of eating disorders!"

Way to go, Demi! And happy holidays! Go stuff your face. You've earned it.

@Switzerland No need to attack me for stating the truth. I'm not the one who punched a girl in the face and wants people to feel sorry for me.

@ Switzerland So true already let go I am no longer concerning myself with someone as worthless as @riley, I was polite in my argument and I have been brought down to a 12yr old slinging match level which is pointless, especially with someone that is meaningless!
