Aaron Carter Hospitalized After He Says He Was Body-Shamed

Aaron Carter was briefly hospitalized last week after he says he was body-shamed by fans about his recent weight loss. The younger brother of Backstreet Boy Nick Carter fired off a series of tweets after his Syracuse concert Thursday, where he overheard people discussing how skinny he was, saying he looked like he had cancer and suggesting he needed to eat five cheeseburgers.

Carter documented the experience in a series of tweets (his twitter account has since been shut down), many of which were met with mean-spirited messages from other Twitter users. "This is body shaming. You guys are bullying me. I’ve already addressed my medical issues. #bodyshaming," Carter tweeted. "I’ve literally had the hardest week of my life, my dad past away my late sisters birthday anniversary was June 6th & people #BodyShame me," read a subsequent post.

"I’m sorry I’m not fat enough. For my fake fans," Carter tweeted. Aaron recently disclosed he was diagnosed with a hiatal hernia and the medical condition makes it difficult for him to eat.

"Lots of shows lately, had to head up to ER just to get a little check up these shows are crazy lately gotta make sure I stay strong," Carter wrote in another message. "I’ll recover," he captioned a photo of him sitting in a wheelchair at a hospital. Carter was back to performing Friday and shared a photo of himself on Instagram. He also shared on Twitter a photo of himself smiling as he is eating. "My appetite is coming back #StayingPositive," he said.

However, his girlfriend, Madison Parker, shared a much different story. "NO @aaroncarter IS NOT OK RIGHT NOW. PLEASE GIVE HIM SOME SPACE AND PRIVACY," she declared. "After these next few gigs, we are going MIA for a bit." Despite her outcry, Carter shared an image of the two of them driving to Indiana for his show on Friday.

Carter’s father Bob died on May 16th, five years after their sister Leslie Carter died of a drug overdose at age 25.
