The song has lyrics that go, “Shut up, count your calories.” Many people found this problematic, especially for people who have battled with eating disorders.

On her Instagram story, D’Amelio wrote, “I’ve always tried to use my voice when it comes to issues surrounding body image, but I’ve never talked about my own struggles with eating disorders. It’s so uncomfortable to admit to even your closest friends and family, let alone the world.”

D’Amelio also apologized to anyone she could’ve hurt by playing the song. She said, “I deeply and truly apologize and I hope you know I never intended to cause any more harm.”

With this, the TikTok star included a swipe up link to resources for those who may need help.
