Last month, Demi Lovato demonstrated her empathy/sympathy for other people suffering from mental illness when she commended Catherine Zeta Jones on Twitter for her decision to seek treatment for her Bipolar II disorder.
Now, Demi has continued speaking up for individuals suffering from mental illness, but this time she's taking on cyber bullies who make fun of Bipolar and other mental illness issues:
"I wish there wasn't so much pressure on society to be thin. It makes recovery so much harder."
"My heart goes out to any and all women who deal with this daily battle. I can't stand it when people make fun of the diseases so many people struggle from."
"Along with making fun of illnesses or diseases, doing it over the internet only makes you more of a coward. Not to mention you've performed the act of cyber-bullying, something that is equally wrong and unacceptable."
We wholeheartedly agree with you, Demi. Thanks for continuing to speak up on such an important issue!
