Demi Lovato

How Dare 'X Factor'

Joke About My Drinking Problem

EXCLUSIVE

122013_demi_xfactor_launch

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.

I don't see it that way. I think she's very sensative about it, obviously. BUT, she was acting cranky, so they made fun of her...like she was drinking cranky juice. Whatever. I didn't see it resembling booze. That was is concluded by TMZ?? and by her own defensiveness. Not an issue

Exactly.. especially when they can joke about your hair, your drug use, and your attacking a back up dancer and claiming you went to rehab NOT for drugs or booze but for emotional and physical issues... I don't understand the popularity of this chic

On top of all her other problems she's got awfully thin skin.

She's just like the Kardashians and other Hollywood trash-as long as you're praising and kissing their ass, they're happy, as soon as they're mocked or criticized they go wild.

Is there anything the skuzzy American won't do to make money at the expense of people's feelings? I think not. It's a cold, selfish culture you live in.
P.S. A 19 year old man in Seattle walks up to a passenger on a city bus and points a gun at him, demanding he give up his cell phone. On the other hand, Canada has the lowest homicide rate in 46 years. America stinks.

**** you. Addicts are open game for all sorts of jokes criticism. You know what? You are better off being gay than a drug addict/ alchoholic. Someone says ***got or ****sucker oh it's horrible and how dare you. But it's fine to laugh at or condemn an addict or alchoholic. Knowing goddamn good and well everyone has or knows one in their family. It's about time for all my brothers and sisters of addiction to stand up and say **** YOU. And my brothers and sisters are far more smarter and devious than any of you. Think about how smart and devious it takes to feed that jones everyday. Once we decide to fight back and take over y'all are ****ed. Power to the recovering addicts/alchoholics. Because when we finally do organize and fight back, law enforcement, gays, blacks, racists, rebulicans, democrats, tea baggers, navy, Air Force, marines, and the mother ****ing DEA, hasn't seen ****. RISE UP MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS. HUSTLE, SCAM, AND SCHEME our way to power. I promise u no one will be able to stop us. We can find steal and produce money like a mother ****er. We've got the guns and the numbers now Mr Morrison. So yeah we can take it over. COME ON!!!! Your ballroom days are over. ITS NO LONGER A NICE DREAM. F DA POLICE. GRANT US THE SERENITY TO CHANGE THE **** THAT WE CAN AND SQUASH THE BULL**** WE CANT. RISE BROTHA AND SISTA RISE. The non violent criminal record that's prevented u from employment. When did it go from have u ever been convicted of a felony to have u ever been convicted of anything BS? When even Mcdonalds is looking to only hireing a perfect politician type with a masters degree to just sweep a floor for $6.25 an hour. ITS TIME FOR NA AND AA TO UNITE STAND AND RISE AND DEFEND TAKEOVER ALL WE CAN. NO MORE CRACKHEAD JOKES. NO MORE DRUNK JOKES. IF ITS NOT OK TO SAY *** OR ****SUCKER THEN ITS EQUALLY NOT OK TO KICK IN OUR DOORS AND KICK A CRACKHEAD OR DRUNK. WAVE THAT FLAG MUTHA F#*•!%^S. FLY OUR FREAK FLAG HIGH AND WIDE. DO NOT TAKE IT ANYMORE. ALL OUR MEETINGS SHOULD BE MORE THAN JUST RECOVERY. THEY SHOULD ALSO BE ABOUT STANDING UP AND DEFENDING. ARENT YOU TIRED OF BEING JOJED ABOUT AND DISCRIMINATED AGAINST? UNITE AND FIGHT!!!!!
