Nick Jonas Blasts CrossFit's Diabetes Joke on Twitter

Nick Jonas is not happy with CrossFit after it made a joke about diabetes.

The 22-year-old entertainer bashed the fitness program after seeing the company’s tweet, which said, “Make sure you pour some out for your dead homies,” with a pic of Coca Cola bottle with the words “Open Diabetes.”

“This is not cool. Please know and understand the difference between type one and type diabetes before making ignorant comments. Sensitivity to all diseases, and proper education on the cause and day to day battle is important,” Nick tweeted.

If you weren’t aware, Nick has been living with type 1 diabetes for 10 years.

    Good on him for speaking out, although I do think he can let a joke go every now and then. I was diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes and put on Metformin on April 15th, 2014. I began the ADA diet and followed it 100% for a few weeks and could not get my blood sugar to go below 140. I asked my doctor what I could do and he said I would be on metformin my whole life – until I graduated to insulin. It’s been a constant struggle but natural methods like ( ) have helped. I can still laugh about the disease every now and then though..
