Teen star Demi Lovato was not happy with the Disney channel when they made a joke about eating disorders on one of their shows, Shake it up. The line in question was, “I could just eat you up, well if I ate.” Lovato once starred on the Disney show Sonny with a Chance but left the series to deal with her own issues with food and depression. She even dropped out of her tour with the Jonas Brothers earlier this year and checked into a treatment facility to help with “emotional and physical issues,” according to her rep.
Lovato took to Twitter to share her disappointment writing, “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…..
#nice.” Disney immediately took action, pulling and reevaluating the two episodes involved, as they stated on Twitter. “It’s NEVER our intention to make light of eating disorders!”
