Demi Lovato fires back at bullies on Twitter
Demi Lovato lashed out at cyberbullies via her Twitter account on Sunday night.
The pop star and former star of the Disney series Sonny with a Chance has been known to take to the microblogging site to vent her frustrations. Last December, for example, she criticized Disney over an eating disorder joke on the TV show Shake It Up, prompting a rep for the entertainment giant to issue an apology.
This week, she's got beef with bullies. "It really surprises me the hateful things people say on the internet. After all the awareness of cyber-bullying," she wrote. "I mean wow. So sad."
In 2010, Lovato suffered a high-profile meltdown while on a South American tour with the Jonas Brothers. She later checked into rehab centre in Illinois to seek treatment for bulimia, depression and bipolar disorder. After treatment, she opened up about the experience in several interviews and has since earned a rep as a pop star with a penchant for blunt talk.
She ended her latest rant with a particularly pointed barb.
"Praying for all the people in the world who feel it's okay to bully people over the internet because if you are one of those people, then you must have had something really terrible happen to your childhood or you're really sick in the head," she added. "Must suck to be born without a heart."
