OMG! This is so sad!
The couple told us in a statement:

Demi Lovato is sick and tired of people talking smack over the internet!
"It really surprises me the hateful things people say on the internet.. After all the awareness of cyber-bullying… I mean wow. So sad."
Tis true! America's favorite past time used to be baseball, but we think it's shifted to hatin' on the internet.
People love voicing their opinions and feel especially comfortable doing so behind complete anonymity. Pair that human compulsion with those who are frustrated by their own lives so much that they need to bash others online to feel good about themselves and you've got the roots of cyberbullying.
If that describes U, then Demi thinks you must have been "born without a heart" and is assuming "you're really sick in the head," as she continued:
"Praying for all the people in the world who feel it's okay to bully people over the internet because if you are one of those people, then … You must have had something really terrible happen to your childhood or you're really sick in the head. Must suck to be born without a heart."
Right on, gurl! Don't EVER let any schmuck on the internet get you down!
Remember, you've had a top ten hit song and the vast majority of the people talkin' smack will never come CLOSE to accomplishing what you have done during your 19 years on this Earth.
Oh yeah. Did we mention most of the cyberbullies are silly teenagers who are too immature to understand the consequences of their actions? We know it should stop, but until that happens, just rise above it!
