One of Disney's spokespersons told TV Guide the episode was "developed to be relevant to kids and families around the world and to reflect themes of diversity and inclusiveness." Disney aired the episode as planned.
Other people including actors Miley Cyrus and Evan Rachel Wood expressed their support.
In 2008, it was announced that Mendler would play the role of Kristen Gregory in the film adaption of the popular teen novel series The Clique by Lisi Harrison.
Mendler had the role of Kristen, a girl who attends OCD on a scholarship, and works hard to keep her good grades.
This decision caused a protest from the conservative group "One Million Moms" asking Disney Channel not to air the episode.
In 2009, Mendler signed with Disney Channel and played Juliet van Heusen on Wizards of Waverly Place.
Following the positive reception to her character, she landed the role of Teddy Duncan on the Disney series Good Luck Charlie, which ran from April 2010 to February 2014.
The follow-up single "Hurricane" (2013) did not achieve the same success.
Mendler has links with several philanthropic projects and humanitarian causes.
