Demi Lovato Slams Disney Over Eating Disorder Joke
Singer gets episodes of Shake It Up pulled after angry tweets...
The Demi Lovato complained over a joke about a character with an eating disorder.
Demi, 19, who went to rehab with an eating disorder earlier this year, took to Twitter to express her disapproval after seeing a character in Shake It Up make a quip about not eating.
The woman, playing a supermodel, told the show's two main characters: "I could just eat you up, well if I ate."
Demi tweeted: "I find it really funny how a company can lose one of their actresses from the pressures of an EATING DISORDER and yet still make joke about that very disease..... #nice."
And she added: "What are we promoting here? #notfunnyATALL."
Demi starred in the channel's Sonny With A Chance, but had to quit when she went into rehab.
Disney was quick to respond and tweeted back: "We hear you & are pulling both episodes as quickly as possible & re-evaluating them.
"It's NEVER our intention to make light of eating disorders!"
