As most people know, I tend to get fired up about the things I believe in, and although my heart and intentions are always in the right place, unfortunately sometimes my passion gets the best of me and causes me to say things that I probably shouldn't say. And when doing so it takes away from the real reason I am speaking up in the first place. Our focus should be on the topic of victims of sexual and physical abuse being afraid to come forward with their stories. They're more likely to face retaliation and harassment than to see justice being served. Especially women. It baffles me that when it comes to serious issues like equality and abuse, too often women are not taken as seriously as men. All I want to see is women coming together and actually making a difference. A real change and shift in society. Everyone has their own way of giving support to others , and at the end of the day, helping victims is all that matters. Ultimately, the message I want people to hear is it's okay to come forward with your abuse and if you do decide to take action, you are not alone.

    Sure, Jan.

    I guess she didn’t like that everyone rightfully pointed out that she trolled to get attention using a woman being attacked.

    Sorry but Demi is pathetic and actively tried to make what happened to Kesha about how amazing she is as a feminist and how much she does completely ignoring what happened to Kesha. All she cares about is people paying attention to her not victims of sexual assault.

    She needs to grow up and how away.

    • Priya says:

      Demi does seem like a narcissist. She is desperate for attention.

      • Naya says:

        Case in point, her post could be summarised by “See yesterday was just more evidence of how I care more about this than all of you so please forgive me for being the best at feminism.”

  3. Daria Morgendorffer says:

    Wow, so Demi is as unlikeable as she seems. Good to know.

    Instead of coming to the conclusion that she should shut the f-ck up, she has chosen to continue to try to tell people what they should do. Clearly this fool believes that she’s got all the answers and that her way is the right way. Seeing as how Kesha and her mom have both publicly acknowledged and thanked Taylor for her money, which they need since they’re running out of money to continue to fight Dr. Luke, Demi should have several seats.

    “Our focus should be on the topic of victims of sexual and physical abuse being afraid to come forward with their stories. ”

    While it’s true that attention needs to be focused here, this is not even the issue at hand when it comes to Kesha and Dr. Luke. Kesha DID come forward. She also said she was in financial dire straights and needed help, which Taylor provided. Demi is so mad that no one pays attention to her.

    • Sam says:

      Yeah. I’m just not getting what the issue is here. Kesha came forward. The issue now is that Kesha has to deal with what appears to be a very restrictive contract and getting out of it. Even if you totally believe everything Kesha says (and I frankly do), that is actually a separate issue from the contract matter. Contracts rarely have provisions for situations like this and it can create a legal mess. But Demi is acting as though nobody believes Kesha. Even the judge, when she ruled, made clear that she was not ruling on Kesha’s sexual battery claims, just looking at the business angle of it. There is a huge issue with the restrictiveness of entertainment contracts and the lack of recourse they provide. I’d love to see people discussing that, rather than reducing it to some BS argument about “real feminism” and such.

  4. Kitten says:

    I mean…whatever. I get that she can be reactive and I understand and relate to the idea of passion getting the best of you. But this is why I stay the f*ck away from social media, you know?

    She may (or may not) have good intentions but she’s her own worst enemy a lot of the time. She just strikes me as very immature.

    • cd3 says:

      Yup. She seems really immature. I used to like her a public persona a bit (could never stand her music) but after this and combined with the fact that she’s with that DB Valderamma… I’m out.

    • Shambles says:

      “She just strikes me as very immature.”

      Yeah… All of these girls– Taylor, Selena, Demi– are in my peer group. They all got famous when I was in middle school, and it seems like they’re all stuck there. But T Swizz did the right thing here, and Demi just needs to not.

      • Original T.C. says:

        Yes they are all immature and selfish. But usually when it’s Swifty who messes up she will be defended as “still young and learning” or called a poor “GIR”L instead of woman. Taylor is usually infantilized while girls like Selena and Demi aged up. It’s a societal observation.

        P.S. I don’t like Demi at all and can’t figure out her claim to fame other than weight issues.

    • lucy2 says:

      Exactly. So many of these celebrities rush to social media and end up saying things they regret. If they’d stay off of it, or at the very least think and learn about something before spouting off on it, they wouldn’t so often find themselves needing to apologize or back pedal.

    • Colette says:

      I still prefer her over Taylor”Passive Aggressive”Swift.

  5. Sam says:

    Stop trying to save face, Demi. You tried to score some brownie points by piggybacking off another woman’s rape and assault story and then got your criticism thrown right back when your target made a far more meaningful contribution to the same woman then you chose to. Woman up.

    She should frankly apologize to Taylor and Kesha, both, for her little tantrum. And maybe step off of social media for a while.

  6. Don't kill me I'm French says:

    Just apologize

  7. kkhou says:

    I can’t sit through many movies that are 2.5 hours long, and the Batman/superman one is no exception. I can’t imagine it has so much to say that I can’t be whittled down into a decent run time. What happened to popcorn movies being under 2 hours?? I

    • PinaColada says:

      +1 i sooooo don’t like movies. They are way, way too long. Even as a kid, I’d get so bored and ansy by the time the mice were trying to get the key. Way too long! I can barely get through a 30-min show. I’ve got stuff to do! ;-)

    • JenniferJustice says:

      And this is why I’d much rather rent movies through cable or watch DVD’s…so I can pause it when I want to go pee or refill my glass. I don’t like feeling trapped in a theatre chair for 1.5-2 hours and if I need to use the rest room, risk missing something important.

  8. Aussie girl says:

    It’s a given that Demi is so going in Taylor’s burn book.

  9. Esther says:

    Woaw that image is really a huge misrepresentation. the statistics of false accusation are between 2%-8%. not only is she using the lowest number, there is a big difference between 2% and 8% but its also 1000 little men. so no its not 2 in 1000 its 2 to 8 in 100! thats way different and i really lost respect for her trying to put a spin out with such wrong numbers.
    there are different pictures like this but she took one where they added rows.

    ‘As most people know, I tend to get fired up about the things I believe in, and although my heart and intentions are always in the right place, unfortunately sometimes my passion gets the best of me and causes me to say things that I probably shouldn’t say. ‘

    Ugh, what a self-serving statement.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      Don’t you get it? It’s not really her fault. It’s her passion’s fault.

      *Note – Anything other than a clear and concise apololgy is no apology at all.

  11. Classy and Sassy says:

    She’s not the sharpest tool in the box, is she?

  12. ReineDidon says:

    She’s an average performer with average voice and “appearance”. The show biz won’t be losing anything if she did not exist. She’s lousy and self centered. The standards are very, very low.

  13. Rockin Robin says:

    Dear Demi, just stfu and focus on your own struggles. Who seriously hates on any suport of a victim? Already didn’t care for Demi and definitely don’t now.

  14. JRenee says:

    This one is always in the middle of some controversy. Is she still with Wilmer?

  15. Suzanne says:

    Demi, honey…just sit down and be quiet.
    Not everything is about you, sweetie. 🙄

  16. Lurker says:

    Anyone want to jumpstart a vomit? The Duggars are coming back to TLC. It’s all over their website. I assume we’ll get a story about this tomorrow. And Josh’s stupid face is on their website’s header.

  17. Jwoolman says:

    Demi is all about Demi. She says whatever she thinks people want to hear. Way back when she slugged a dancer and was booted off the Jonas Brothers tour immediately and scooted into rehab, she shifted the story to claimed eating disorders (acceptable reason for getting so thin) rather than the real reason for her drastic weight loss (drugs, not acceptable reason). The dancer she slugged had actually said something about her partying and cocaine use, which infuriated Demi. She is still playing that distraction game and has shifted to other popular issues, claiming herself as a victim. I don’t know how much is true and how much is false in her carefully spun personal history, but I’m sure it’s not all true. Rather than being bullied, for instance, the evidence points in the opposite direction and her continued “mean girl” approach as an adult confirms my suspicions. Just take everything she says with a few buckets of salt and don’t waste sympathy on her.

    It’s really too bad she’s so obnoxious. She does have a good and powerful singing voice, and from an early age. She did decently in the Disney vehicles for her (the Sonny show and the Jonas Brothers TV movies and one with Selena Gomez about a princess in hiding) although she wasn’t the best actor in the casts by a long shot. And she pretty much destroyed the TV show built around her when she was fired, which impacted a lot of other young actors. They tried to redo the show entirely without much success, it required a drastic shift in storyline. I imagine she’s the proverbial nightmare to work with and that will limit her options as an actor since she doesn’t have the talent in that area to make people tolerate bad behavior. Don’t know if she’s still interested in acting, though, except for her perpetual role as Demi the Victim of the Week.
