In a sentence we never thought we’d have to write, Demi Lovato ended her feud with LA frozen yogurt chain The Bigg Chill. She did so on an Instagram video on Monday, apologizing for anyone who was offended by her message, which she said was “misinterpreted”.
Lovato admitted she “didn’t pick up Froyo Square” “from a place of love” and said, “I’m really sorry people got it wrong. I just get very passionate. “
The 28-year-old pop star began her campaign against Big Froyo Sunday by posting on Instagram about her recent on-site visit:” It’s extremely difficult to order Froyo from @thebiggchillofficial when you’re looking at tons of sugar-free cookies / Another diet must pass food before you come to the counter, “she wrote in her Instagram story.
The Bigg Chill started a face-to-face conversation with Lovato and wrote:” We have been catering to all of our customers’ needs for 36 years We’re sorry you found this offensive. “
From there, things escalated. At one point, according to DMs of the conversation leaked to TMZ, Lovato warned the Froyo ad,” Don’t do it keep it up. You don’t wanna mess me up You’re wrong and the customer is always right. “
Meanwhile, as the backlash to her reaction grew, Lovato claimed that she was gas-lit by the media over the flap.
But back to her apology:” When I wrote to this Froyo place, I was originally going to highlight one point and I wanted to highlight behaviors or brand things that don’t really suit me, “said 28-year-old Lovato.” As someone dealing with an eating disorder and recovering from an eating disorder, it falls It’s still hard for me to go to a Froyo store, order yogurt, be happy with it, and keep it low. “
Lovato admits that she wrongly concluded that The Bigg ruled Chill Articles marketed and labeled for people with celiac disease.
“I didn’t know,” she said. “Because it wasn’t clear, I definitely jumped to conclusions and probably shouldn’t have done it the way I did , but ic I’m ready to speak to this Froyo shop to get the news right. “
Lovato continued,” I know people with Froyo struggle with eating disorders. This is why I am very sensitive when I walk into a Froyo place and see diet items. “
” The thing about overcoming my addiction – my drug addiction – I can walk away from it and never touch it for the rest of my life, “she explained.” But I have to eat three times a day … I have this one Leaving yogurt store and not getting the yogurt I wanted. And then for the rest of the weekend I had a hard time being completely transparent. “
Ultimately, she said of the feud that Real Housewives of New York City star Leah McSweeney once had:” I got into a situation that didn’t really suit me. And I feel good about it. What I don’t like is the way it has been interpreted and how the message has been misinterpreted. “
” I’m really sorry people got it wrong. I just get very passionate, ”said Lovato. “It never comes out of a place of hate, it always comes out of a place of love and trying to uplift people. I understand that didn’t raise Froyo Square, but I’m upset and that’s all that was. “
” People with eating disorders should be able to go in and feel safe wherever they go to eat. That’s all I ask, ”she concluded. “If we can make this environment safer for everyone, including people who are recovering from an eating disorder and just want a little Froyo, if we can and give Froyo to vegans and people with diabetes at the same time, then let’s go.” Page Six is duly excited about Selena Gomez’s upcoming feud with the Sherman Oaks Sbarro.
