DEMI Lovato has blasted her former Disney bosses for including an eating disorder joke in one of their shows.
The singer and former Sonny With A Chance actress - who sought rehab treatment last year for "emotional and physical issues" including an eating disorder - took issue with a line in the studio's sitcom Shake It Up.
Lovato vented her anger on Twitter after hearing a character in the show jest: "I could just eat you up, well if I ate."
"I find it really funny how a company can lose one of their actress' (sic) from the pressures of an eating disorder and yet still make [a] joke about that very disease," she wrote. "Dear Disney Channel, eating disorders are not something to joke about."
Disney 's media relations team responded by writing back to Lovato : "We hear you & are pulling both episodes as quickly as possible & reevaluating them ... It's never our intention to make light of eating disorders!"
The studio's message referred to the episode of Shake It Up and an episode of So Random. Lovato thanked Disney for its decision and proceeded to clarify her earlier comment that Disney actress are "getting thinner and thinner".                                –DS
