Aaron Carter was hospitalized on Thursday after being bombarded with body-shaming remarks from his so-called fans while he suffers a serious medical condition.
The “I Want Candy” singer, and younger brother of Backstreet Boy Nick Carter, fired off a series of tweets after his Syracuse concert, where he overheard people discussing how skinny he was, saying he looked like he had cancer and suggesting he needed to eat five cheeseburgers when in fact he has a medical condition called hiatal hernia.
One user tweeted, “sometimes your best friend gets in a verbal fight with Aaron Carter.”
To which Carter, 29, shot back: “You mean a defaming body shaming verbal assault against someone with severe medical conditions which I’ve publicly talked about?”
Aaron Carter blames skinny frame on eating disorder
Carter was referring the condition hiatal hernia, which earlier this year he revealed he suffered from. The condition often makes it difficult to eat — therefore making him appear extremely skinny. He calls it an eating disorder and said it is why people think he looks like he’s on meth or heroin.
“A grown woman was gossiping bout me w (SIC) I have a eating disorder telling people I need to eat 5 cheeseburgers cause I look like I’m dying,” he continued on Twitter.
“They literally won’t stop bullying me.”
Hours later, he shared an image of himself in a wheelchair at the emergency room and another in a hospital bed, chalking it up to exhaustion.

He also said, “I’ll recover.”
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.
In a final plea to stop the negativity, Carter shared an iPhone note to his Twitter account, stating “All gods children are beautiful, tall short thick or thin.”
