Demi Lovato Sends Powerful Message After Reading Body Shaming Headline

Demi Lovato is clapping back at a journalist who commented on her weight in a headline.

The 26-year-old singer took to her Instagram story to respond after a seeing the body shaming headline that noted she “appears to have a fuller figure.”

“I AM MORE THAN MY WEIGHT,” Demi wrote, before opening up about the dangers of body commentary in the media.

She continued, “Unlike the past, I’m not triggered, I’m not upset that someone wrote a headline about my ‘fuller figure.’ I’m angry that people think it’s okay to write headlines about people’s body shapes. Especially a woman who has been so open about being in recovery from an eating disorder. I’m not upset for myself but for anyone easily influenced by the diet culture.”

Demi went on to send a message to those struggling with body confidence and included the apology she received from the article’s author.

    Yes, we know you’re more than your weight, you’ve been preaching the same thing for 10 years now.

    If someone isn’t triggered, they ignore it. They don’t then go on line and tell everyone they don’t care.
