Did Demi Lovato diss Zendaya? Following the unveiling of a Barbie modeled after Zendaya's likeness, Demi took to Twitter to call for a curvy doll, stating that she would pose for the realistically proportioned toy.

Demi's comment has since been deleted after she was on the receiving end of plenty of hate. While fans thought she should let Z have her moment, to be fair, Demi has requested a more normal sized Barbie in the past.

Timing is everything though, and Demi's tweet came off sounding pretty unsupportive. Did she throw shade by writing: "Hey @Barbie, what about a curvy doll or one with true to size measurements? I'll model!! #raiseyourvoice #besuper"? Zendaya recently shared her excitement over the Barbie, writing on Instagram: "When I was little I couldn't find a Barbie that looked like me, my...how times have changed. Thank you @barbie for this honor and for allowing me to be apart of your diversification and expansion of the definition of beauty. Can't wait to keep doing amazing things with you."
Nicki Minaj took to Instagram to congratulate Zendaya on the new doll, but even her support was misinterpreted by some as being a bit shady with a backhanded compliment. We think maybe that's a stretch though.
