“Demi Lovato should be ashamed of herself for using her platform of 102 million people following her on Instagram to drag a frozen yogurt spot because she’s mad that they sell diet frozen yogurt and sugar-free options because that triggers her,” McSweeney reportedly said.

Lovato originally called out The Bigg Chill for carrying sugar-free products. The pop star said she was “finding it extremely hard” to order frozen yogurt from the shop after having to walk past “diet foods,” Page Six reported.
McSweeney did acknowledge Lovato’s eating disorder in her call-out.
“I mean, I’m sorry that she had to deal with an eating disorder,” she reportedly continued. “That’s terrible. But does that mean that we have to stop offering people sugar-free options for things?”
McSweeney went on to criticize Lovato for using her platform to “drag” a small business.
“The ultimate privilege is to just use your platform with millions and millions of people to drag a f*cking business with 6,000 followers on Instagram who have been doing their thing since the ’80s,” McSweeney reportedly said.
