Lovatics attacks Shake it up to defend Demi

On December 23, Twitter became a battle ground between Locatics and fans of the Disney Show Shake it up,

20111224-100236.jpg

20111224-100329.jpg

It all started with a few tweets from Demi Lovato

“I could just eat you up, well if I ate” – Disney Chanel’s Shake It Up….

What are we promoting here?
#notfunnyATALL. Demi

I find it really funny how a company can lose one of their actress’ from the pressures of an EATING DISORDER and yet still make joke about..
Twitter for iPhone • 12/23/11 5:05 PM
Demi

…that very disease….. #nice.
Twitter for iPhone • 12/23/11 5:06 PM
Demi

And is it just me or are the actress’ getting THINNER AND THINNER…. I miss the days of RAVEN, and LIZZIE MCGUIRE.
Twitter for iPhone • 12/23/11 5:11 PM
Demi

For those of you who don’t know the show, Shake it Up stars Bella Thorne and Zendaya. The line Demi is referring to came from an episode from season 1 called Party it Up which Aired Dec 12 2010. The girls, CeCe and Rocky were helping at a party at Gary Wilde’s house and a super model said the line “You are so cute, I could eat you up, if I ate.” it was a joke about the stereotype of an adult model trying to keep thin.

Demi who has struggled with eating disorders was offended by the joke, expressed her opinion and then twitter got crazy!!

Many people who are Demi fans, called Lovatics started bashing the show, the writers, the cast, and Disney Channel.

9 year old Davis Cleveland took to Twitter to defend the show, his cast and crew and made some pretty harsh claims about Demi’s behavior during the time she was leaving the Disney Channel. His point was Demi had more issues than just eating disorders. He simply didn’t like Demi attacking his show.

Lovatics went after 9 yr old Davis with lots of gay bashing and even death threats.

20111224-101943.jpg

Davis didn’t back down and suggested that those fans use that energy for something positive like finding a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. Davis is passionate about the people suffering from CF and helping to find a cure!

Some Lovatics started a Twition to get Shake it Up off of the air due to the offensive joke.

Demi made a point that actresses are getting thinner and thinner. This may be true but it isn’t Disney Channel’s fault and skinny actresses are not just on Disney Channel. This has been an issue for years before Bella and Zendaya were even in acting. The cast of Sex and the City and the female cast members of Friends were all super thin. Nickelodeon shows like Victorious and Zoey101 also have very thin actresses.

They say the camera adds 10 pounds. We’ve met many celebrities and yes many are super thin. Miranda Cosgrove, G Hannelius, China McClain and Ariel Winter are all tiny. Casting agents are always looking for smaller kids who are older to play roles. Skai Jackson is 9 and plays a 7 yr old. Jake Short is 14 and plays an 11-12 year old. So what I’m saying is most of the time it is people who have smaller builds who book jobs. Then if they are young teens like Bella and Zendaya they have a growth spurt and look very thin.

I feel that Demi had a right to express her opinion and so did Davis but when fans began to hate, gay bash and cyber bully it went too far. Demi was bullied on middle school so badly she dropped out and began home schooling. I think she would been disappointed in her Lovatics last night if she knew how far they went last night.

Davis Cleveland was defending his show, cast and crew against attacks and got bullied, threatened, and called gay and a bunch of other names.

I hope when these people cool off, they see that this is not ok. Most of Demi’s fans support anti-bullying and this was a sad night!

Disney Channel did respond through their Public Relations Twitter account and told Demi directly that they would pull the episode that had the offensive joke in it

@ddlovato – we hear you & are pulling both episodes as quickly as possible & reevaluating them (1 of 2 messages)
@ddlovato – It’s NEVER our intention to make light of eating disorders! (2 of 2 messages)
web • 12/23/11 7:32 PM

Then Demi thanked them

@DisneyChannelPR thank you.
Twitter for iPhone • 12/23/11 9:40 PM

Demi did clarify that she wasn’t targeting a specific show or actresses
I wish her fans got that message earlier.

Just clearing things up, I have nothing against any specific actress/actor or tv show.. Nor do I think there’s anything wrong with girls
who aren’t curvy, I just was stating a fact that there needs to be more variety on television so young girls growing up don’t feel pressured
to look one specific way. Tall, thin, curvy, short, whatever you are, you are beautiful. :). Demi

It was a tough night for people like me who support the show and Demi.

I wish people can feel free to express their opinion without starting a Twitter war!

Davis Cleveland visits Houston Children’s Hospital

Davis Cleveland is a 9 yr old actor who is best known for his role as Flynn on Disney Channel’s hit show Shake it Up!
He plays a boy who is mischievous and a bit of a trouble maker. In real life Davis is mature and very sweet!

He has had a Twitter for a while and about 6 months ago learned about Maci Drewry and her struggle with Cystic Fibrosis. Like Davis, she is from Texas and is also 9. Unlike Davis she has spent a LOT of time in the hospital because of her Cystic Fibrosis.

Davis saw her inspiring video on You Tube click on the link to watch it.
maci drewy

He was so inspired that he helped her get followers on Twitter @MaciDrewy and even encouraged her come to LA and visit the set if Shake it Up.

When she was healthy enough to, she came. I got to meet her at an event and make sure she met all the celebs without having to wait too long.

20111221-091312.jpg

Davis follows anyone who follows Maci and watches her CF video.

Davis didn’t stop with just helping Maci. Since learning about this devastating disease and how it affects people who
have it he has brought awareness to all his friends, family and followers. He even brought all the guys from Shake it up to a CF walk in the San Fernando Valley.

20111221-091650.jpg

Lots of young fans were thrilled to see Davis at the event.

20111221-091753.jpg

He has done other walks in Texas to support Maci and her team.

Davis is back in his home state Texas for the holidays. But CF doesn’t take a vacation and neither does Davis!
Today he tweeted that he’ll be visiting the CF unit at the Children’s Hospital in Texas.

20111221-092043.jpg

I think this is a great thing that Davis is doing. Those kids in Texas are going to have a blast visiting Davis.

I hope you follow Davis and Maci and Davis Bird Rio on Twitter

She helped a store in Santa Monica have a grand opening. I was there as press so i Got to interview her. I asked about Put Your Hearts up, her style, and asked if she was on Santa’s naughty or nice list. I also asked what her fans meant to her.
