Well, it’s not so much a Twitter battle so much as it is Demi Lovato absolutely ripping Disney to shreds on her Twitter and Disney apologizing on theirs. What’s all this about, you might ask. It’s about a show on the Disney Channel called Shake It Up that recently had a character say this charming line: “I could just eat you up. Well, if I ate.”
Oh, hell no, Disney. Not on Demi’s watch:
“I could just eat you up, well if I ate” – Disney Chanel’s Shake It Up…. What are we promoting here? #notfunnyATALL
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.
And is it just me or are the actress’ getting THINNER AND THINNER…. I miss the days of RAVEN, and LIZZIE MCGUIRE.
Dear Disney Channel, EATING DISORDERS ARE NOT SOMETHING TO JOKE ABOUT.
Just clearing things up, I have nothing against any specific actress/actor or tv show.. Nor do I think there’s anything wrong with girls who aren’t curvy, I just was stating a fact that there needs to be more variety on television so young girls growing up don’t feel pressured to look one specific way. Tall, thin, curvy, short, whatever you are, you are beautiful. :)
And here’s Disney’s PR Twitter account with their response:
we hear you & are pulling both episodes as quickly as possible & reevaluating them
It’s NEVER our intention to make light of eating disorders!
Remember when Demi said that she wanted to be a role model? Well, I think she’s doing a pretty solid job so far, don’t you?
