Demi Lovato Shuts Down The Haters, Responds To Weight Shaming

It hasn’t been an easy road for Demi Lovato. In recent months, the singer has had to endure many social networking dramas, a few intimate photos leaking, and an odd rivalry with comedian Kathy Griffin. On top of that, Lovato is still trying to be a positive influence on her younger fans after she revealed this year that body issues and problems with drugs sent her to rehab.

It seems like one comment really rubbed Demi the wrong way, making the singer address one hateful tweet to shut down the haters once and for all — we hope.

The “Skyscraper” singer tweeted in response to a user who called her a “fatty.” Instead of fighting back with hateful and bitter words, Lovato took a moment to teach her admirers a lesson in rising above the drama. She encouraged her fans to fight back at bullies not with their fists, but with a bit of love instead.

“Dear haters, you don’t have to like me cause I love you. Everyone’s equal, everyone has a soul and everyone deserves to be loved.”

Then Lovato decided to retweet the hateful message that called her a “fatty” and told the tweeter, “you are beautiful” in response.

In another turn of events, Lovato didn’t seem to keep her cool when addressing an article that the Daily Beast published. The article in question was titled “Why Women Want Hollywood Lothario Wilmer Valderrama.” Valderrama is of course Demi’s on-again off-again beau, who apparently seems to be “on again” after photos leaked of the two of them in bed.

Of Wilmer’s position in the industry The Daily Beast said:

“In addition to potentially embarrassing Lovato, these pictures nudged Valderrama and his playboy ways back into the public spotlight. Yo Wilmer Valderrama’s so culturally irrelevant, he relies on the commodification of his young girlfriend’s body in order to re-enter the current celebrity conversation!”

The article went on:

“It makes sense that these pretty young things would be feelin’ the Fez—but what’s behind Valderrama’s continued appeal, which seems to have outlasted his onscreen success? Besides releasing the hilariously titled track and music video “The Way I Fiesta” in 2011, Valderrama hasn’t done any significant acting work since he hosted MTV’s Yo Momma.”

In response to the article Lovato tweeted, “thedailybeast such a classy ‘news site’ you are. Writing horrible things about people you know NOTHING about. Get a LIFE you ignorant f–ks.”

No word if The Daily Beast responded to Demi’s comment.
