Demi Lovato is in a “Really Don’t Care” mode when it comes to defending her family.
This past weekend, Demi’s little sister Madison De La Garza, decided to post on Twitter mini clips of herself preparing dishes. What’s the harm you ask? Well you would think fans of Demi would embrace her skills in the kitchen, ask her for recipes etc. but fans of Demi were the least supportive. Making fun of her, calling her unflattering names, and teasing her.
In the midst of her tour Demi put a stop to this. She made it known she does not tolerate bullying to her family or anyone.
“For anyone telling me to ‘chill’… The impact bullies have over the Internet can lead people to suicide,” she tweeted on Sunday. “I can handle bullshit. But do NOT f*** with my baby sister.”
She continued, “I’m all for peace and spreading love UNTIL you go after a 12 YEAR OLD who did NOTHING to you. So disappointed that after all the conversation about cyber-bulling in this world that people would continue to do this to others. @Maddielovesyou1 you are BEAUTIFUL and the most precious little angel in my life and I will always protect you. I LOVE YOU.”
She then continued to add, “Physical disabilities are NOTHING to joke about. SEVERE SCOLIOSIS IS NOTHING TO MAKE FUN OF.”
Demi Lovato prompted her fans to start tweeting the hashtags #MADISONISBEAUTIFUL #FeelBetterMaddie, which quickly started trending worldwide.
Bringing Madison to tears she wrote “I’m speechless… I love y’all so much… Thank you,”
*Be Aware of What Your Kids are Doing Online
Talk with your kids about cyberbullying and other online issues regularly. Help them be smart about what they post or say. Tell them not to share anything that could hurt or embarrass themselves or others. Once something is posted, it is out of their control whether someone else will forward it.
