Demi Lovato presented at the VMA’s and apparently there were a number of Tweeters that had something to say about her weight. Well for those of you who don’t recall, Lovato is just making her reentry into the spotlight after seeking treatment for her eating disorder. So it seems to me a bit insensitive for people to get all hot fingered and tweet about how fat she looked. Truth be told she looked happy, yes she is fuller, but far from “fat”.
Here’s the real question I would like to ask, what if she did show up “fat” I mean rolly polly? What then? Would these tweeters, who obviously are either fans or people who follow her enough to know who she is, and that she was thinner before so I would assume that they might know that she was treated for having an eating disorder, would they hurl such incendiary comments at her and risk what that might do to her recovery? Sadly yes, they probably, would because a “break-down” is great fodder for gossip. I love that Demi stood up for herself and did not break down she tweeted:
“I’ve gained weight.Get over it.That’s what happens when you get out of treatment for AN EATING DISORDER.”
She then erased the tweet and replaced it with :
“Guess what, I’m healthy and happy, and if you’re hating on my weight you obviously aren’t. 🙂 #UNBROKEN”
Personally I like the first one. We all need to get past this high school mean girl, jump on the underdog mentality that has become ubiquitous with the internet social media networks. The old adage of “If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all” should be heeded by all these days. Good for you Demi- stay healthy and happy and keep right on moving, people busy texting and tweeting can’t look up long enough to move forward!!! Good on ya!
