Demi Lovato

How Dare 'X Factor'

Joke About My Drinking Problem

Demi Lovato is furious at the producers of "X Factor," grousing that she was blindsided by a skit that mocked her addiction ... TMZ has learned.

Mario Lopez introduced a skit which showed clips of Demi drinking what looked like booze, acting annoying and off center. 

Demi is extremely upset because addiction has turned her life upside down.  It got so bad, she was living in a sober house for more than a year just to avoid temptation.

You can see her reaction on the show ... at one point it appears she says "That's f**ked up."

Demi's already said she's leaving the show, but now it's pretty clear ... for her it couldn't be soon enough.

We contacted reps for the show ... so far no word back.

Yeah, we'd hate to make fun of her "recovery". She still stands on her head and pours coke down her nostrils, goes on violent rampages, pukes in the toilet and carves her thighs like a Christmas ham. She's still licking the anus of Wilmer Valderrama, for Christ's sake!

I watched it live and regardless what some of you feel about Demi, that was just plain rude. To mock her addiction like that was horrible. I was pretty shocked they would stoop that low and that NO ONE behind the scenes thought it was in bad taste. Just wrong!

Obviously you people who think X-Factor made her famous, don't know anything about about her. She's been popular, her music sells, her concerts do well, and every show she's been on has been a hit. Do some research.

I thought she had a cocaine addiction or something.... now its alcohol? Either way Demi Lovato is pathetic. Don't feel bad for her one bit. She's a celebrity in Hollywood, if she's gonna be open about addiction then she needs to be prepared to have people crack jokes about it. She needs to quit her whining, she's clearly doing it for attention anyways.

Demi has worn me out with her supposed eating disorder which started at age 2, her self cutting issues, her drinking problems, her drug problems, her weight problems, her depression... blah blah blah. She really knows how to use sympathy to get rich!

OK    

These people have to have alligator like skin to survive in Hollywood. If she didn't want to be made fun of, she should have kept her problems to herself. Not saying it was right to tease her, but this is the X Factor we are talking about. They all poke fun at each other.
