The claws are out and nothing was off limits! Demi Lovato has lounged attack against her former employer, Disney Channel.
After catching an OLD episode of Shake It Up Demi angrily tweeted her disgust of a joke from the show. In the episode an actress playing a supermodel said “I could just eat you up, well if I ate” to Rocky(Zendaya) & Cece(Bella Thorne). She goes on to bash the company with the help of some loyal fans.
We’re happy that Demi is taking a stand, but it seems kind of late since these episode are so old. We love Demi for standing up for her beliefs, BUT…
Demi you went about this in the wrong way sweetheart!
Don’t worry we can help you. We will tell you what you did wrong with the help of some tweets we found.
First, Don’t ever slap the hand that feeds you! Disney gave you a chance with the help of your BFF, Selena Gomez. Without that pedestal you wouldn’t have achieved the success you’ve enjoyed.
Second, why would you take such a delicate issue to Twitter. Why not talk to Disney personally and discuss your concerns?
Third, think before you speak. Obviously you know that Disney is NOT trying to make fun of such a serious situation. They would never do that and give kids the wrong impression. The jokes were meant to be funny, though admittedly they came across wrong. Your totally right when you said “EATING DISORDERS ARE NOT SOMETHING TO JOKE ABOUT”, but you need to know that’s a conversation you have with Disney NOT Twitter!
Fourth, you have lots of friends at Disney. Think how that makes them feel when you call out a company that they are apart of right now or in the past. Your burning bonds which we all know is dangerous!
Even the newer Disney starlets had enough sense to stay away from your rant. When someone tweeted Zendaya, who is a member of the Shake It Up cast, saying “Demi going ham on Disney, On shake it up you guys said something about eating”. Zendaya replied like a pro “
#keepitpositive im a big fan of @ddlovato :)”.
Demi is just digging a hole that she won’t make it out of in our opinions. The fans have even split. Some are taking offense, believing that Demi is bashing skinny girls. They are whipping back things like “There’s nothing wrong with being skinny. Not everyone who is skinny has a eating disorder, maybe they just can’t help it.(@JBiebss4everr )”.

*UPDATE* Disney Channel has apologized to Demi Lovato via Twitter. They are currently in the process of evaluating & removing any content that they felt was offensive. See Demi they NEVER intended any offense, but you could’ve gotten the same reaction by just talking to Disney before this Twitter rant!
