Source: TMZ LEAKS Demi Lovato's Messages with Thebiggchill | Full Messages Shown
Demi Lovato is taking a stand against what she calls “diet culture vultures.”
The pop star, who has been candid about her struggles with eating disorders, took to Instagram Stories over the weekend following a triggering experience at the Los Angeles frozen yogurt shop The Big Chill. Lovato shared that she was frustrated to see the shop carry “diet foods,” such as sugar-free cookies, which she sees as helping to promote a problematic diet culture.
“Finding it extremely hard to order froyo from [The Bigg Chill] when you have to walk past tons of sugar-free cookies/other diet foods before you get to the counter,” the 28-year-old star posted. “Do better please.”
The experience has inspired the “Dancing with the Devil” singer to launch the hashtag #DietCultureVultures, which she intends to use to call out “harmful messaging from brands or companies that perpetuate a society that not only enables but praises disordered eating.”
The Big Chill responded to Lovato’s complaint in its own Instagram Story, telling her that they “carry items for diabetics, [people with] celiac disease, vegan and of course have many indulgent items as well.”
Now according to TMZ, Demi Lovato isn’t backing down in her diet food war with a frozen yogurt shop — she’s now warning the store about messing with her … but also walking back her comments a bit, saying she was having a really bad day.
Demi swatted back … insisting they carried another, similar “diet culture” cookie — and also warned TBC to stop fighting with her, and that they didn’t wanna mess with her. She even dropped the ol’ … “customer is always right” on ’em.
