Watch: Demi Lovato Responds to Backlash for Saying a FroYo Shop’s ‘Diet’ Options Were ‘Triggering’ for Her Eating Disorder

‘Sorry Not Sorry’ singer Demi Lovato is apologizing to detractors who slammed her for recently speaking out against a frozen yogurt shop for its ‘triggering’ diet options, but she didn’t do so without offering clarification around her polarizing statement.

Last week, the GRAMMY nominee maintained no chill as she slammed frozen yogurt shop The Bigg Chill for offering her sugar-free and diet foods that upset her as she’s overcoming an eating disorder.  And though reps from the company responded to her statements to inform her that some of their menu items are intended for diabetics, vegans, and people with other health concerns, Lovato took to social media Monday (April 20) to confirm her intent was not to “bully a small business” but rather to inform them.

See what else she said inside:

“I am very outspoken about the things I believe in. I understand that sometimes my messaging can lose its meaning when I get emotional… I’ve lived through enough to know when to speak up for people who don’t have a voice,” Lovato said (as seen in the video above). “When I messaged this froyo place, originally, I wanted to make a point, and I wanted to call out behaviors or branding, things that didn’t sit right with me. The truth of the matter is, as someone who is in recovery from an eating disorder, I still, to this day, have a hard time walking into a froyo shop, ordering yogurt.”

Later in the clip, she shared:

“I’m genuinely sorry that people took it the wrong way. I just get really passionate,” she added. “It’s never coming out of a place of hate, it’s always coming out of a place of love and trying to lift people up. I understand that didn’t lift the froyo place up, but I’m upset and that’s all that that was.”

Elsewhere in the visual, she made sure fans understood:

“People with eating disorders should be able to go in and feel safe wherever they go to eat. That’s all I’m asking. Literally all I’m asking,” she continued. “If we can make this environment safer for everyone, including people that are in recovery from an eating disorder and just want a little froyo, if we can do that while also giving froyo to vegans and people with diabetes, let’s go.” 

In conclusion, the ‘Dancing with the Devil’ diva offered her services to The Bigg Chill “to help align the messaging to where I feel safe going in there and I can eat the froyo that I went there for.”

    She is so annoying. Always starting some type of shīt.

    She sounds stupid.
    People like her want to live in a world that is tight lipped and politically correct.
    Don’t walk into a grocery store then, there’s « diet » products everywhere.
    If you want to be positive as you claim, why don’t you celebrate the fact brands are trying to offer an alternative that is healthier ?
    Just shut up next time.

    Regardless, without being harsh, EVERYONE has problems and EVERYONE has their cross to bear – her eating disorder is one of HER problems for HER to deal with, not the WORLD’S and for the WORLD to deal with.
