Demi Lovato Scolds Disney for Eating Disorder Joke

When a star on the Disney Channel’s show Shake It Up made a joke about starving, Demi Lovato, who battled an eating disorder, jumped on her keypad and used her Caps Lock key. On Shake It Up, a character said: “I could just eat you up, well if I ate.”

Demi was pissed, so she used some sarcasm, claiming that she finds it “really funny” that Disney went there, Tweeting:

  • 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.

Disney freaked out and said that it will be “pulling both episodes as quickly as possible & reevaluating them.” The network also claimed that it was “NEVER our intention to make light of eating disorders!”

Good for Demi and good for Disney!
