Not cool! Demi Lovato just clapped back at a nasty internet troll who told her that she needed to lose weight, and she did it in the best way ever.
The hater, who has now deleted her Instagram account, posted a photo of the “Tell Me You Love Me” songstress on July 2, and captioned it, “Hey Demi, DM me so we can discuss a diet plan for you @ddlovato.”
Yeah, that’s definitely not OK.
“I actually am choosing not to diet and fall back into unhealthy behaviors at the risk of losing my sanity or mental health,” the singer fired back. “But thank you for the offer! Super sweet.”
QUEEN. You know what they say — kill ’em with kindness! As fans know, the 26-year-old has been pretty open in the past about her struggles with her body image, and she even revealed that she used to suffer from an eating disorder.
“At 12 years old, I was bullied in school. Girls were calling me fat, so I thought, ‘That’s the reason I don’t have any friends.’ So I stopped eating. I became very weight-conscious, and I lost 30 pounds. I went down to 95 pounds,” she told People Magazine back in 2011. “When I was about 15, I was only eating two meals a week, but I wasn’t losing any more weight because my body adjusted to that. So I tried new things: laxatives, fasts —nothing was working. I decided maybe I should start throwing up. At my worst, I was doing it five times a day. I threw up so hard and so much.”
And although she’s doing a lot better now, the Camp Rock actress explained back in 2017 that it’s unfortunately something she’ll have to deal with for the rest of her life.
“I don’t want to give it the power that it controls my every thought but it’s something that I’m constantly thinking about,” she admitted in her Simply Complicated documentary. “Body image, what I wish I could be eating, what I wish I could be eating next, what I wish I didn’t eat, you know it’s just constant. I get envious towards people who don’t struggle with an eating disorder because I think my life would be so much easier.”
We are seriously so proud of her!
