Disney Makes Anorexia Joke, Demi Lovato Fires Back

Demi Lovato left the popular children’s show Sonny With A Chance after a long tough batter with anorexia and now she’s angry with Disney after the show Shake It Up made a joke about the eating disorder.

On the show one of the characters recently said:

“I could just eat you up. Well, if I ate.”

Taking to Twitter immediately following the job Lovato tweeted:

“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.”

She then added:

“Eating disorders are not something to joke about.”

This isn’t the first time Disney has cracked an anorexia show, the Sonny With A Chance spinoff So Random also made fun of the disorder.

Following Lovato’s tweets the Disney Channel responded by tweeting

“We hear you and are pulling both episodes as quickly as possible and re-evaluating them. It’s never our intention to make light of eating disorders!”

Do you think Demi Lovato was right for calling out the Disney Channel for their insensitive mention of a serious eating disorder or was it simply a joke that went along with the shows specific storyline?
