It’s most definitely not. Ever since she has moved out of her mother’s house recently, she has been getting skinnier and skinnier. This clearly isn’t a ‘high metabolism’ or any other type of losing body weight uncontrollably condition.”
While Cooney appeared to address the controversy in a recent video saying, “I just don’t really feel like that’s ever really a good thing to do to people, guys. If anything, the whole situation has been kind of upsetting. I’m doing OK, because I’m used to getting hate on the internet. Seeing a lot of dislikes, I just really feel like that’s not going to make anyone feel good.”

1. The Creator of the Petition Says That Cooney ‘Has a Serious Medical Condition & Needs to Seek Help’

According to ATTN, “Petitioners have expressed concern that Cooney’s thin appearance is sending a bad message to young fans.” While the creator of the petition says that Cooney “has a serious medical condition and needs to seek help.”

The creator, Lynn Cloud, adds, “She knows that she’s influencing young teenage girls into thinking being 60 lbs. is normal. It’s most definitely not. Ever since she has moved out of her mother’s house recently, she has been getting skinnier and skinnier. This clearly isn’t a ‘high metabolism’ or any other type of losing body weight uncontrollably condition.”

If anything, the whole situation has been kind of upsetting. I’m doing OK, because I’m used to getting hate on the internet. Seeing a lot of dislikes, I just really feel like that’s not going to make anyone feel good.”

In April 2016, Cooney was reported to have inadvertantley admitted to having an eating disorder. She says in the clip, ” “I’m just kind of naturally like that, I guess. There isn’t really a reason.” On her Ask.fm page in 2015, Cooney was asked what she ate to which she replied, “I have a disorder.”
In Cooney’s video, where she appeared to address the controversy, she says that she declined an offer to appear on Dr. Phil to discuss her weight. A whole section of the TV doctor’s website is dedicated to those with eating disorders. Earlier in October 2016, Dr. Angie Viets wrote in a blog for the Huffington Post, asking Dr. Phil to “stop triggering people with eating disorders in an attempt to improve ratings.” Verts adds, “For the love of God, I lost count of how many times you showed those precious girls raising their shirts to show your camera crew how emaciated they are, their protruding collar bones, and rib cage.

They wore the least amount of clothes allowable on network TV to highlight their fragile physical state. It was troubling the number of times they’re shown bingeing and purging in the bathroom. And then, to make matters worse, you allow their parents to discuss the girls’ dramatic weight loss in NUMBERS, including their weight prior to the onset of the eating disorder and current weight.”
