Demi Lovato has hit back about how a visit to a frozen yoghurt shop was "triggering and awful", after she faced a huge backlash.

Among those that tore into the 28-year-old singer was former Good Morning Britain host, Piers Morgan,who branded Demi "stupendously dumb" after her rant on social media at the weekend.

Now, the Dancing with the Devil singer has addressed the backlash to her original comments after she found it "extremely hard" to order from The Bigg Chill in Los Angeles, due to the "diet foods" and sugar-free options on offer.

Despite the outlet replying to Demi's original post, explaining that they cater for diabetics, vegans and those with Celiac disease, the singer still hit back saying they need to "do better" and ""find a way to provide an inviting environment for all people with different needs. Including eating disorders."

Demi has been open about her struggles with her body image and an eating disorder but has still apologised to those who were upset by her initial rant.

She claimed that her "message has gotten misconstrued" during an eight-minute video she posted to her Instagram page on Monday.

Demi said: "When I messaged this froyo place, originally I wanted to make a point, and I wanted to call out behaviors or branding things that didn't sit right with me.

"As someone who deals with an eating disorder and is in recovery from an eating disorder, I still to this day have a hard time walking into a froyo shop, ordering yogurt and being content with it and keeping it down."

She added: "I know that seems like not a huge deal to a lot of people, but to me it is."

Demi pointed out that it "wasn't clear" which "diet" and "health food" options were "for specific health needs."

She continued: "I didn't know that. Because it wasn't clear, I definitely jumped to conclusions and probably shouldn't have gone about this the way that I have, but I'm willing to talk to this froyo shop to help get the messaging right."

Demi then explained why she used to turn to frozen yoghurt as it "just felt safe to me."

She said: "I know that people struggle with froyo with eating disorders. That's why I'm super sensitive when I walk into a froyo place and I see diet stuff."

"This is a hard thing to live with on a daily basis. The thing about overcoming my addictions, my drug addictions, I can walk away from that and never touch it again for the rest of my life. I don't ever have to do that. But I have to eat three times a day.

"This is something that will be with me for the rest of my life.

"I left that yogurt store and didn't get the yogurt that I wanted. And then I had a hard time the rest of the weekend, to be totally transparent."

Demi finished the video by saying that didn't intend to go "after a small business as someone with a lot of followers."

She said: "I walked into a situation that didn't sit right with me, my intuition said speak up about this, so I did. And I feel good about that.

"What I don't feel good about is some of the way it's been interpreted and how the message has gotten misconstrued."

Demi says that she would be happy to work with the shop "to help align the messaging to where I feel safe going in there and I can eat the froyo that I went there for."

She concluded: "People with eating disorders should be able to go in and feel safe wherever they go to eat. That's all I'm asking. Literally all I'm asking.

"If we can make this environment safer for everyone, including people that are in recovery from an eating disorder and just want a little froyo, if we can do that while also giving froyo to vegans and people with diabetes, let's go."

"I'm genuinely sorry that people took it the wrong way. I just get really passionate.

"It's never coming out of a place of hate, it's always coming out of a place of love and trying to lift people up. I understand that didn't lift the froyo place up, but I'm upset and that's all that that was."
