“This is extremely detrimental to anyone who is easily influenced by the social pressures that arise from diet culture,” 26-year-old Lovato writes in her Instagram Story.
The singer, who herself was undergoing from an eating disorder, asks the social medium to keep these ads from the timeline of Instagram users. “Precisely because we are becoming more and more aware of mental health, I expect you to know better.” Also, in addition to Instagram, Lovato accuses the makers of the game.
