Demi Lovato has spoken out against Piers Morgan who accused her of being a “bully” in a recent row about a frozen yoghurt shop.
The Dancing with the Devil singer, 28, has responded to the former Good Morning Britain’s latest column in which he called her a “repulsively arrogant woman” for shaming a frozen yoghurt store for selling sugar free baked goods.
The diva took to Instagram stories to address the drama, admitting that she is a naturally outspoken person.
Speaking to fans, she said: “I am really outspoken about the things that I believe in. I have to remember that sometimes my messaging can lose its meaning when I get emotional.
“I am human, I am somebody who is very passionate about what I believe in and I’ve lived through enough to know when to speak up for people who don’t have a voice.
“I messaged this fro-yo place. Originally, I wanted to make a point and I wanted to call out behaviours that didn’t sit right with me.
“As someone who is in recovery from an eating disorder, I still to this day have a hard time walking into a frozen yoghurt shop, ordering yoghurt, being content with it and keeping it down.”

She went on to address the comments Piers made in his recent Mail Online column where he called her a “bully” for harming small businesses.
She clarified: “It’s really important that everyone understands that my intentions were not to bully a small business, that was not it.
“I walked in, it was so triggering that I left without fro-yo and made me really sad.”
In his column, Piers said that he was “triggered by Ms Lovato herself”, adding that her comments on his favourite frozen yoghurt business was “dumb and deluded.”
He said: “The more this repulsively arrogant woman attacked this lovely little store in her staggeringly unhinged and delusional manner, the more furious I became.”
In her original post to her Instagram stories, Demi said: "Finding it extremely hard to order froyo from @thebigchillofficial when you have to walk past tons of sugar free cookies/ other diet foods before you get to the counter.
“Do better please. #Dietculturevultures.”
The independent business was quick to respond to the post, saying: “We are not diet vultures. We cater to all of our customers' needs for the past 36 years. We are sorry you found this offensive.”
Lovato replied: “Not just that. Your service was terrible. So rude. The whole experience was triggering and awful.

“Don’t make excuses, just do better.”
