Disney Channel Treated Eating Disorders Lightly, Demi Lovato Slams

Disney Channel drew out episodes of two of its series from airing after Demi Lovato bombarded the network for poking fun of eating disorders.

The former Disney starlet took to Twitter to complain about the Disney Channel series 'Shake it Up' included the joke, "I could just eat you up-well if I ate."

"I find it really funny how a company can lose one of their actresses from the pressures of an EATING DISORDER and yet still make jokes about that very disease," Fox News quoted Lovato as writing.

"And is it just me or are the actresses getting THINNER AND THINNER?"

The former 'Sonny with a Chance' actress spent two months in an Illinois rehab facility in 2010 to deal with "emotional and physical issues," including eating disorders and self-mutilation.

The network responded on Twitter, telling the 19-year-old star it was pulling the episode, as well as an episode of its series 'So Random', which was spun off from 'Sonny with a Chance' after Lovato left the show to enter rehab.

"We hear you and are pulling both episodes as quickly as possible and reevaluating them," the Disney Channel's Public Relations tweeted.

"It's NEVER our intention to make light of eating disorders!" they wrote.
