Maybe it's about time somebody made jokes about and she takes serious enough to listen! Afterall, it is her who is responsible for it. She's trying to move the blame to Disney. Man she should grow up!

what does her singing having to do with this? she is someone with an eating disorder and found it offensive and stood up for what she believed in

I saw that episode, and they weren't making fun of bullimics, they were making fun of the fact that modlels are always so thin and perfect. From me to Demi: Cry me a river, build a bridge, and get over it. Though, i do have to say, she is right about shows today making jokes that cross the line. Shows on Nick are starting to make alot of innapropriete references but they dont really offend anybody and they're what make the show funny. But i dont really like the fact that iCarly makes so many jokes about hobos...and one more thing. I dont mean to be picky, but a Christmas episode of ant farm made this joke about orphans "Lets beat 'em up, ORPHAN STYLE" first of all, it wasnt funny, second, its not cool to make fun of orphans, especially around Christmas. I think these shows need to lay off, because alot of the innoproprieate jokes they make arent funny at all, not that im saying that its only okay when its funny, but you know.

Obviously, Disney knew it was in bad taste or they wouldn't have pulled it so quickly.

so you are saying it is ok for Disney to tell their young viewers it is ok to have eating disorders? If Lavato is someone with an eating disorder and was offended by Disney then she had every right to speak up and protect young girls from her same fate
12:35 PM on 12/26/2011
They weren't making fun of eating disorders. They were poking fun at super skinny model stereotypes. Everyone but Demi seemed to understand it was a joke. If you can't laugh at yourself too bad. Don't try and sensor everything for everyone else just to boost your low self-esteem.

Most Americans have lost their ability to laugh as unfortunate as that is. Usually it is from their insecurities about theirselves and want sympathy from the world. I say if they want sympathy, it is in the dictionary between two words. It is getting to the point we can't crack a joke with out someone or some group crying about it.

i mean it's gotta mean something that they responded and even pulled the clip or show or whatever it was. It's not disney that writes scripts-- writers write. Good for them, I don't believe that was a message they'd ever intentionally pass.

"I could just eat you up, well if I ate."

Really? That's the joke that offended her? I kept preparing myself to say "What the heck were they thinking?!" while I read the story to get to the joke, then after I read the joke all I could say was "Where was the line Disney crossed?"

People need to stop being so sensitive.

Come on, people you need to get a life and stop being so dog gone sensitive....This political correctness has gone too far....you people don't realize that is how Chinese Communism and Russian Communism started long ago and still does...Control how people talk and think then control them totally...Come on....if we can't laugh at ourselves then something is wrong with us...So what a hunger disorder was subject of a pun...big deal....People are just too sensitive, what is this nation now, a nation of wimps?

Lavato wasn't trying to control anyone- she was offended and she spoke up for what she believed in- why should people who are hurt by others sit in silence because others will ridicule them

Wow, one of the most overused supermodel punchlines, and Lovato makes it about herself. Of all the bigotry Disney's been allowed to escape with over the years (for example, a lot of the shows tend to play their beloved canned laughter when male characters are shown making remarks that would make a feminist cry), she blows her whistle over a line a one-time character said that surely went over the heads of the vast majority of its viewers. Does that mean it's excusable? No. Does that mean Lovato should use that as another opportunity to remind people that she's the new advocate for people who had a self-destructing disorder for a rather short amount of time? Maybe... Maybe not.

Demi Lovato, self-appointed censor of the Disney Channel.

If she had actually censored it, you'd have a point. As it is, she simply expressed displeasure. They were under no actual obligation to censor anything.

If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong (-;/

You couldn't be more wrong, it's called damage control and she gave Disney absolutely no choice whatsoever. Here's how it should have played out and here's how it did: If Demi had anything resembling a clue, she'd have asked for a meeting with Disney execs to discuss how she felt about it, and they'd have come to a decision professionally, in a board room, sans the media blitz. In the real world many have been fired for bad-mouthing their employers in a public forum. Done this way, even if Disney disagreed with her, they had to pull the episodes or they'd be viewed as "insensitive" to those with eating disorders. She threw them under the bus and Disney took the only action they were left with, she addressed this as a petulant child would.
