Demi Lovato called out Instagram for allowing a fat shaming video game advertisement that was seen on her feed. The singer took a screen shot of the ad that was for the Game of Sultans that showed two animated girls, one that was bigger labeled “obese” and the smaller girl labeled “pretty.”  

Demi added her thoughts asking, “Why is this bullsh*t on my feed? So many things wrong with this ad.” Another screen shot said “1. You can be pretty at any weight.” Demi went further to let others know that these advertisements can be harmful to people that are easily influenced by pressure from society and to anybody with eating disorders. She ended it by telling Instagram to keep those type of advertisements off everyone’s feed and to do better.

According to TMZ, a rep for Instagram commented on the situation saying, “We’re sorry. This ad was approved by mistake. We reviewed it again and removed it from future delivery in people’s feeds.”
