Don't mess with Demi Lovato!

The "Skyscraper" singer took to Twitter on Tuesday night to shut down a bully who called the singer a "fatty." However, instead of fighting back with words of hate, she responded to the tweeter with love.

"Dear haters, you don't have to like me cause I love you. Everyone's equal, everyone has a soul and everyone deserves to be loved," the 21-year-old tweeted. "Dear Lovatics, for every hater tweet - don't respond with hate but love and positivity.. Try love instead of combat."

The singer even practiced what she preached. She later responded to the "fatty" comment, telling the follower, "you are beautiful."

What a wonderful message to spread! Way to go, Demi!
