Demi Lovato slammed for 'triggering' addicts by celebrating 420 & smoking weed in pics after 'shaming' yogurt shop

DEMI Lovato was slammed for "triggering" addicts by celebrating 420 and smoking weed in pictures.

This comes after she "shamed" a yogurt shop for triggering those with eating disorders and body dysmorphia by promoting health-conscious flavors.

Demi, 28, took to Instagram Stories on Tuesday to share a series of photos of her partaking in the recreational use of weed on April 20.

In the first picture, the singer could be seen smoking while sitting on a hammock with an ocean view.

She then shared another photo of her enjoying an alcoholic dink while holding a pipe.

This should not come as a surprise to many as she has spoken about how she practices consuming weed and alcohol in moderation while being a recovering addict.

“A one-size-fits-all solution does not work for everybody,” she said in Dancing With The Devil. “What I’m encouraging people to do is just make choices for themselves.

“Autonomy, for me, is what changed my life.”

The raven-haired beauty – who recently came out as pansexual – recognizes that her approach towards healing isn’t for everyone.

Demi adds: “What I’m encouraging people to do is just make choices for themselves."

Despite her explaining how moderation helps her addiction, fans weren't having it and they took Twitter to condemn her.

One fan wrote: "not demi lovato showing off her smoking weed on her stories… idk some followers might struggle with it.

"It might not cause physical addiction but can be a hard vice for people still…."

A second one tweeted: "Something about Demi Lovato sitting in Hawaii posting pics smoking weed while simultaneously trying to take down a small business for having options for diabetics just doesn’t sit right with me."

And a third one said: "not Demi Lovato being triggered by yogurt shops for eating disorders and recovery and then glamorizing the use of weed to her 102 million followers on Instagram?

"everyone is entitled to do what they want but don’t be a hypocrite in the process."

This all comes after Demi recently went on a tirade against a frozen yogurt shop for promoting eating disorders and body dysmorphia.

Demi urged the store to "do better" in catering towards people with eating disorders and called them "diet culture vultures".

"Finding it extremely hard to order froyo from @thebiggchillofficial when you have to walk past tons of sugar free cookies / other diet foods before you get to the counter. Do better please," she wrote over the weekend.

She then wrote in a second post: "So, I think I'm gonna have to make that hashtag a thing.

"I will be calling harmful messaging from brands or companies that perpetuate a society that not only enables but praises disordered eating."

The Bigg Chill apologized to Demi for making her feel offended, before pointing out that they stock the items to cater for diabetics, celiacs, and vegans.

The store stated: "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.

"We carry items for Diabetics, Celiac Disease, Vegan and of course have many indulgent items as well."

Demi – who came out as pansexual after her split from Max Ehrich – then posted an eight-minute Instagram video responding to the backlash, in which she insisted it was never her intention to "bully" the store.

"I am really outspoken about the things that I believe in," the Dancing With The Devil singer said. "I have to remember that sometimes my messaging can lose its meaning when I get emotional."

The Disney alum went on: "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 behaviors 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 yogurt shop, ordering yogurt, being content with it and keeping it down."

Demi – who previously revealed she struggles with "suicidal thoughts" – admitted she "definitely jumps to conclusions and probably shouldn't have gone about this the way that I have".

She vowed to work with the store to "get the messaging right."
