Grammy-nominee Demi Lovato calls out to people making comments on people’s bodies, specifically, on those who lost weight. The ‘Dancing With the Devil’ singer, who recently come out as non-binary and changed their pronoun to ‘they/them,’ had taken to Instagram to share the reminder.
Demi told their 105 million followers that it could be “as harmful as complimenting someone on their weight gain.”
The pansexual singer wrote, “If you don’t know someone’s history with food, please don’t comment on their body. Because even if your intention is pure, it might leave that person awake at 2 am overthinking that statement.”
“Does it feel great? Yeah, sometimes. But only to the loud a** eating disorder voice inside my head that says, “See, people like a thinner you” or “If you eat less you’ll lose even more weight.”
She explained that it made her wonder what people had been thinking about her body before that? Hence, she imparted an important message to others.
“Moral of the story: I am more than the shell for my soul that is my body, and every day I fight to remind myself of that, so I’m asking you to please not remind me that that is all people see of me sometimes.”
